I doubt that. They'll either recast Wolverine and move on (as Marvel will have to do with Iron Man), or they'll continue the films without the character (in the short term at least), they could introduce his comic-book son Daken as the new Wolverine, or they will introduce and establish a new central action hero hunk like Cable to take his place.
If they are rebooting Fantastic Four, and almost rebooted Daredevil, then they could easily reboot any or all of X-Men.
