Bringing back all the major characters that were already killed or depowered is just too much. They are putting so many characters, it sounds exciting right now but I'm afraid, this is gonna be one of the major criticisms when the movie is out.

The returning characters that should appear in DOFP:
Future X-Men: Professor X, Magneto, Wolverine, Storm and small cameos from Rogue, Iceman, Colossus and Angel
60s X-Men: Professor X, Magneto, Mystique, Havok, Banshee, Beast, Emma Frost

Thats already 11 (without counting the cameos I listed). And of course there will be new characters. They should be careful on picking who should return.
Well, maybe Cyclops ends up alive as a result of altering the timeline? Or maybe we get a new, younger version join the team? I think it would be good to include the character at some point and give him a solid portrayal as team leader. Many of the fans' complaints centre on the use/misuse of Cyclops in this franchise.

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