Don't "push" characters into voids you need to fill (like Psylocke) let them at least make sense. The GA will just think they're cool mutants.. while the fans will go HELL YES! (if there role makes sense)
you just have to fit them logically into the story.
The Psylocke role was supposed to be larger, with an action scene where she fired her psi-blades during a laboratory raid, but it was cut so the character's involvement diminished.
Multiple Man ended up having more of a significant role than Psylocke in the end!
I think they need to be careful with cameos. In many cases, it's the cameo roles that causes trouble in the long term - the Beast cameo in X2, the Storm and possible Cyclops cameos in the Cerebro sequence in First Class.
If they really are trying to build a more structured franchise, they need to be careful who they choose to include as cameos in DoFP.
