It’s been a while since we heard Fox would release a special “Rogue Cut” of X-Men: Days of Future Past, featuring the B-plot that was axed from the film. We finally have an update — and it’s very good news.

While the theatrical cut has been out on DVD for a while now, the studio has remained mum on the mythical “Rogue Cut,” which aims to restore the scenes involving Rogue (Anna Paquin), including a massive prison break and structural changes to the back half of the film. It was a relatively sizable undertaking to cut her from the film due to time constraints, and that’s precisely the reason we haven’t heard anything about a release.

Turns out the studio is putting together a full-on, standalone Blu-ray set for the “Rogue Cut,” with its own unique special features separate from the theatrical cut. The studio is calling it a “complimentary” release to the main film. Fox Home Entertainment executive vice president of marketing communications James Finn confirmed the plan via Twitter, and also revealed it should hit Blu-ray and digital platforms in summer 2015.

It’ll be interesting to see how the “Rogue Cut” does, since it represents a unique situation for a modern-day blockbuster. Considering the sheer amount of Rogue footage axed from the film, it’s almost a parallel version of Days of Future Past — as opposed to a re-cut adding a few extra scenes.

Do you plan on checking out the “Rogue Cut” next year?
