You can still kill off Logan in the future and have Logan in the past, and not be in a lead role.
No matter how you spin it:
2012 - ROBERT DOWNEY JR. "THE AVENGERS"
2013 - ROBERT DOWNEY JR. "IRON MAN 3"
The above is fact.
DOFP is FOX's answer to Avengers. They're not gonna leave Jackman out & they're certainly not giving him a throwaway role. The time traveler role is the most logical way to go. They're not gonna leave their quarterback in the background and then kill him off.
We'll find out in a few months anyway.
