Obviously we don't have all the facts at this point. But in terms of her appearance in DoFP, as of now it seems pointless to me. Rogue was powerless--and by choice--by the end of X3. That was our last time seeing her. And how would the source material grant her rights to an appearance in the film?
I don't get this shaming of Rogue/Paquin, that she's now included in DOFP and Storm/Halle wasn't, when Rogue wasn't in the DOFP comics and Storm was. And thus the latter somehow deserving that spot in the movie more than the former.

Besides they're including Xavier in the future scenes when his character was nowhere in the comics to be found. I just don't get the point of pitting characters/actresses against each other. These characters deliver very different things to the franchise and I would hope as X-men fans we can see how one character's inclusion might benefit the film over the inclusion of the other.

I'm sure Bryan & Co. have written a clever way to include her that will make absolute sense. All some of us are saying is keep it clever and get Storm in there too.
Now we're talking. I want the original cast of X-men! It just wouldn't be the same without them. Famke, James, Rebecca, Alan, Halle. Come home!
