When Anna was asked if she would come back and play the role of Rogue she stated:

“Absolutely. Yeah,” she told us. “I would hope I could do a little bit more action next time, though. I kind of find it ironic that I did three big action films and did, actually, no action whatsoever. I mean I got some really amazing emotional story moments, but I didn’t really get to do the physical stuff.”

She stated that she enjoyed filming the X-Men series but she wished that she got to do more actions scenes.  As she puts it:

“You know, as much as I loved doing those films I was kind of like, ‘OK, so when do I get to beat someone up? When do I get to steal some powers?’ You know Sookie [Paquin’s True Blood character] gets to do more action than Rogue ever did. So I’m just putting that out there. More action please, for next time.”
