As long as the continuity issues are small ones in the sequels, Ill be pretty happy with a longer saga this time.

Look at it this way, they can go this route:

FC1: Havok, Beast, Banshee, Mystique (joining Magneto at the end)
FC2: Havok, Beast, Banshee, Polaris, Sunfire.
FC3: Havok, Beast, Banshee, Polaris, Sunfire, Cyclops, Jean.
FC4: Havok, Beast, Banshee, Polaris, Sunfire, Cyclops, Jean, Storm.

And they can go on and on until the 90's, ending the saga in the past with Havok and Polaris leaving the school, Beast starting his political career, Banshee going to Irland, and Sunfire dying. So the only x-men that stay with Charles are Scott, Jean and Storm, to connect the last sequel with X1. Perfect way to end the saga.

So, if we can get ALL of this, why to stop the franchise with just only one or two more sequels?
That's a nice plan, from a fan perspective, but far too neat and Marvel Studios-esque! LOL

I doubt they'd have Havok, Beast and Banshee in all those films with the cast getting bigger and bigger with each movie. The films couldn't juggle all those characters.

I'd love to see Beast decide he has to try to change the world through politics, and Havok discovering he has a brother though.

It's a shame that the franchise isn't a TV series where all this can gradually unfold, but even then it might get frustrating waiting for things to happen (like Smallville did).

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
