I'm not thinking whats best for this franchise and its future? So do you really think a new movie with just the cast of First Class are gonna make more money than a new movie with the original cast? I don't want FOX to make X-Men 4 just because I want to, but because I know it would be a successful movie that it would earn more money than the X-Men movie that will feature the cast of First Class. Just look at how First Class performed at the domestic box-office, especially when you inflate the numbers, the gap between First Class' domestic box-office number is way way lower compare to the domestic box-office number of the first X-Men movie.
The only thing you are worried about is Age thing which is silly. Daniel Craig is pushing 50 and look how successful SkyFall is. Plus I already mentioned before that I don't want Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart for X-Men 4 because I want the X-Men to move forward without Professor X and I want to see a new group of villains.
