It's a follow-up! It's a sequel to FC and the continuation of X1-X3. And I couldn't be happier. To me, this was the most brilliant thing they could come up with the put new life into the franchise.
I am a HUGE fan of FC and I was positive throughout production. BUT even I don't care for anyone in that movie besides Xavier, Mags, Mystique, Emma, and to a lesser extent, Beast.
And if they were only going to develop that new X-Men team, I fear the movie wouldn't have gained much of an audience. This way, the new team cast gets a boost from the old cast and the franchise can be continued. Everyone wins!
