“That’s confidential, sugar”: Nope Star Keke Palmer Sparks up X-Men’s Rogue Role in MCU After Initial Fancasting

Nope Star Keke Palmer Sparks up X-Men’s Rogue Role

With a new era of Marvel and DC on the horizon, there are bound to be some actors such as Keke Palmer making their appearance for the first time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to rumors, with an X-Men reboot in the works set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the role of Rogue is open for actors to play.

Keke Palmer recently responded to rumors of her portraying the role of Rogue in the MCU and her answer seemed a bit suspicious as Marvel has not confirmed or denied anything.

Keke Palmer’s Conspicuous Answer on Playing Rogue

Here’s what Keke Palmer replied when she heard about speculations that she was all set to be the next Rogue in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“That’s confidential, sugar. No, I’m kidding. I don’t know. I just know that the fans, the way that the fans have me booked, honey, online, I got to do a gig every week. So if we’re adding Marvel to it, hey, let’s do it. I’m ready for Rogue.”

The “confidential” part was a reference to Rogue’s Southern accent in the comics. Keke Palmer indeed knows her characters and is certainly more than interested in portraying one herself.

Suggested: Will Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine Become an Avenger in Secret Wars?

With the announcement that Hugh Jackman is all set to shine once again as Wolverine in the MCU when Deadpool 3 releases, the X-Men reboot gig seems more likely a project that Marvel would lead. There would be many roles to be filled once again or they could simply ask the actors to reprise their roles.

Keke Palmer would indeed be a good choice for the portrayal of Rogue in the MCU. Anna Paquin had portrayed the role of Rogue in four X-Men films to date with X-Men: Days of the Future Past being her last role as Rogue. Most of her scenes were removed in the theatrical release of the movie following which a Rogue Cut was released to the public which included all of Anna Paquin’s scenes as Rogue. Marvel has given no official statements regarding the fan-casting of the role of Rogue. The X-Men Reboot doesn’t have a release date as of now but more updates will be revealed soon.
