That could be what they are doing if Halle/Storm isn't coming back.
As I've mentioned in another thread, since when has Rogue been able to pick and choose which powers she absorbs? It's all or nothing. If she gets Colossus's strength it will be his metal as well, not just one part of it. And if it were somehow selective, how do you know she won't end up as metal-weather-controlling Rogue with no super strength or flying ability?
If she wants strength and flying ability she needs to absorb someone with powers similar to Ms Marvel. Which mutants are there around like that? Or maybe they'll have to create one who dies at the start of the movie just so Rogue can acquire those powers.
