Re: Any word on if this is going to resolve continuity issues from First Class?

The idea that Singer would not want to exclude X1-X2 from this movie, but that he would be totally fine to put aside his own films after DoFP to make way for a new timeline, and leave "his" timeline in a dead end in a dystopian future, is kinda strange to me.
I think that bringing in X1-X3 into this movie -and- keeping them as a part of current timeline would work if you set the crucial event shortly after X3. That way, after the dystopian future is averted, the post-X3 timeline can just go as per normal. But by setting the event back in the 60s, I don't see it working the same way.
But First Class kind of retconned X3 out of the entire timeline already...
