The X-Men movies always felt realistic and the idea of having an AI as the central villain is not. Plus I doubt this movie will be really close to the comics version of Days of Future Past. I feel like they are going too far, if the main villain is an artificial intelligence.
The AI would a bit too much like Skynet in Terminator, even though DoFP came first (in the comics). You're right that it's also a bit much on top of all the other sci-fi elements. It's perhaps better as the work of a human or group of humans. I'm not sure where that leaves Mastermold though.
