Katherine Langford as Rogue

Ann Paquin did her best as Rogue, but the story fell flat. Fox did Rogue wrong and the MCU can fix it. She’s part of the villains in this article because of her backstory, which ties her to Mystique. Because of Mystique and Destiny’s influence, Rogue takes down Captain Marvel by taking her power. If told correctly, Mystique, Destiny, and Rogue could lead to the end of Captain Marvel in the MCU and make the trio a group to be reckoned with. There’s this cool story waiting to be told that sees a vulnerable young girl with a heart of gold who falls into a bad situation.

Given that her powers void her of physical human affection, whoever plays Rogue should have leading lady qualities. She should be able to play vulnerable while being one of the most powerful mutant at the same times.

Katherine Langford is a young amazing actress best known for her role as Hannah Baker in 13 Reasons Why. We know that she’s capable of playing characters with an alluring and magnetic personality needed for Rogue. She also starred in Netflix’s Cursed as the powerful witch shunned by her village, but she’s making her way to the big screen. Don’t worry about her ability to put on a southern accent. The young Aussie actress played a convincing American (Hannah) and a British swordswoman (Nimue), pulling off a southern belle is easy money.

Zoey Deutch would also be a great choice given how amazing she is. Liz Gillies looks like Rogue ripped straight from the comics, so the Dynasty star would also be perfect for the role. So does Bella Thorne, who would also be a perfect Rogue, especially given she’s just 24 years old.
