Well that is just a matter of whether the director can get what he is after out of the actor or in this case actress concerned, and having the right
vision for the character in that stage of her development. Personally, I think that Anna Paquin is capable of pulling off a harder, and stronger, and
more confident Rogue, similar in aspect to the 90s cartoon version, but only if she is instructed to show that side to the character by the
The other thing will be making sure the character is written properly. As you know from watching the X-Men films that have come out thus far, the
character has been used as a plot device, but has not really been explored, and neither have the outer reaches of her talents. She ran away from home
before she even understood a fraction of her potential, and then was kidnapped by Magneto, and has largely occupied the position of "Occasionally
useful damsel in distress" in the films since then.
Frankly, if the writing staff paid the correct level of respect to the characters evolution in terms of both her abilities, her control of them, and
indeed the development of her confidence in herself during the preceeding movies, then we would not even question the subject!
However, if they somehow manage to write a script properly, and present Rogue in her proper role as a face wrecking she-badass with a sense of
mischief and confidence, then I see no reason why Paquin could not act the living crap out of that. But unless the writing and directing offer her the
opportunity to let her badass loose on the movie going public, we will never know for sure. I want to see it happen though, I really do.
