With more than 26 main characters all crowding each other within a two hour time frame, it seems quite logical and probable that some of them are going to get cut from X-Men: Days of Future Past. It already happened with Anna Paquin's Rogue, who was edited out of the finished cut. Now comes word that almost all of Halle Berry's scenes have been trimmed and swept into the dustbin.
Its not clear how much screen time she would have had, but its clear that the original Mutants are the first to go when it comes to X-Men: Days of Future Past, with director Bryan Singer focusing more on the X-Men: First Class cast in telling this story.
An onset source revealed the news to New York Daily, saying:
Singer says it will continue the series' push towards the present day with the action again leaping ahead in time. "X-Men: First Class" gave us the early 1960s, 'Future Past' is partly in the early 1970s, and he confirms that 'Apocalypse' will be set in the 1980s.
He tells Heat Vision that 'Apocalypse' will "offer more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon. There's definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle."
He says 'Apocalypse' is going to doing to deal with the notion of ancient mutants, and will "introduce familiar characters in a younger time."

In 2006, the X-Men franchise appeared to be in trouble. Bryan Singer had departed the Marvel mutant movies, handing the reigns to Brett Ratner, of all people. Key characters were killed off. Important villains were marginalized (poor Juggernaut). The future looked bleak. Nowadays, few franchises appear to be as healthy as Fox.s X-Men series. What a difference a few years can make. Matthew Vaughn reset the needle with the origin-story prequel X-Men: First Class. Several significant pieces from the past and present are coming back to the screen for a generations-spanning story in this summer.s X-Men: Days of Future Past. And plans already are underway for 2016.s X-Men: Apocalypse. The future looks bright! Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, we have to dig deep into Days of Future Past. We have roughly 100 moving parts to organize as we get ready for the sequel.s May 26 release date. »

Director Bryan Singer is returning to the X-Men franchise this May with X-Men: Days of Future Past, and audiences are apparently quite eager to see what the superhero team-up has in store. Essentially serving as Fox’s answer to Marvel’s The Avengers, the film combines the original X-Men cast with the X-Men: First Class crew and involves time-travel, alternate timelines, and Sentinels. While many are certainly looking forward to the film, Singer already has his eye on the next movie, as he’s currently breaking the story on the Dofp follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse. Singer is attached to direct the pic, and in the recent issue of Total Film, he talked a bit about the sequel, revealing that it takes place mostly in the 1980s, deals with the notion of ancient mutants, and will have “more mass destruction” than any X-Men film to date.
