Also Vaughn has stated that if a sequel were greenlit which it will, he would love to introduce Cyclops and Storm. As far as Wolverine Origins go, that is not in the continuity either (right Fox) which is why the next movie will drop the Origins tagline and go with The Wolverine.
I'm not sure where you're getting your information. Singer actually said First Class was a prequel in the same continuity but with slight liberties taken for the sake of story.
Also, Vaughn said he wanted to introduce one new character but would not say who.
The Wolverine is a standalone but not a reboot. After this film, it's anyone's guess what will happen next.
