We don't know yet if the secondary characters have been dropped or not. And I don't think it must be assumed that in the next movie Raven will hate Charles and will be ready to kill him. Or that Charles will now be totally cool to be in a wheelchair now that years have passed - it's not like there is an expiration date on something like this. It can still have impact years later even if we don't see the immediate aftermath.
