First Class was simply not the financial or critical success it needed to be to justify a straight sequel.

I completely agree I think this was the best compromise they came up with. This way we get the First Class cast which breathe life to the xmen world as well as the blockbuster original trilogy cast which are basically money making machines when it comes to X-Men.
