Should the MCU make a film about Anna Marie aka Rogue?
The high flying southern belle can hold her own in a solo film giving the opportunity. The question is whether Marvel is willing to put all the cards on the table (Insert Gambit Joke Here).
What would be the synopsis of the film?
If you take a look at all the other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you will recognize a simple pattern. All you need to create a fun film is to give the hero a little backstory and an easy assignment. Hey DCEU, I’m talking to you.
When it comes to a superhero film, you don’t have to make it complicated. You don’t have to create a film where both superheroes’ mothers are named Martha. Hey DCEU, I’m talking to you again.
With Rogue it’s easy. Rogue tends to get into many relationships. Create a love story where her boyfriend is in trouble with the main villain and she has to protect him while taking down the big bad.
For example, Rogue goes out with a hustler who is trying to turn his life around. She doesn’t know he works for Maven.
Maven is a huge business owner of a high tech company who wants to make everyone sick with a virus. Then he wants to sell the cure at a high price to make a huge profit.
The hustler learns about the plan then tells Rogue everyone is in danger. In the process, the hustler battles within where he truly lies … With Rogue or with the tech company?
You see DCEU, it’s not that hard and you’re welcome.
Who could play Rogue?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Mary Elizabeth Winstead is one choice. She appeared in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, playing Ramona Flowers. Mary has a sweeter look in comparison to Anna Paquin, but she is closer in age and could pull off an action superhero movie.
She has a few indie, horror, drama, and comedy films under her belt. She was also born in North Carolina, so she has the southern belle aspect down.
Another actress that can play the role is Madison Blaine McLaughlin. She is an American actress best known for her roles in television as Michelle Sovana, the juvenile delinquent turned young boxing protégé in the NBC series Chicago P.D. (2014), and as young hunter Krissy Chambers on CW’s hit show Supernatural (2005). Most recently, viewers can see Madison returning to The CW on Arrow (2012) as Evelyn Sharp, the teenage orphan who finds her identity as the DC Comics vigilante Artemis. Madison was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana so she can also play the southern belle with ease.
