I would bet on A however movieweb may be taking the Hollywood reporter
article out of context.
Singer will more than likely want the cast and story he wants. If there are questions, it will probably be either explained away as an alternate future (if it includes people killed in X3, like Cyclops) or, if it's just Xavier and Rogue, they can say X3 left it open for the cure not to be permanent and that Xavier had a new body.
Singer showed with SR that he is willing to leave previous films as 'vague history' and disregard entire films. But the trouble with SR is that it left it difficult to move forward.
