I don't think we would see an X-Men movie with just Storm, Rogue, Iceman and those other characters who were in the original trilogy without Wolverine. Wolverine is the face of the X-Men movies and if they are gonna do X4, X5 and X6, they should definitely include him. If they didn't include him, thats like doing a Transformers movie without Optimus Prime. Of course the inflation of price, 3D tickets and good word of mouth from casual viewers/critics would help the movie earn bigger money than the previous movies like X-Men: First Class. But still Wolverine is a big draw to the audience, so its a must that they include him in the movie.
