He can go a few routes here...acknowledge and reference previous films without keeping them as gospel.

A simple explanation of the Cure not being permanent allows for alot of wiggle room with Rogue..
This doesnt include a alternate timeline, multiverse... use whatever word you want. But in this scenario, there arent any rules, and Singer is quoted as saying he's interesting in those ideas.
BTW why would he say one thing and do another?... you mean like when they lied about Cyclops in TLS. Not saying Singers doing that, just saying that they want to keep the story under wraps, so...
It seems more likely the future is after TLS, and then for that future and the existing trilogy to be changed by the time travel into the past, creating a clean slate of an alternate timeline in which Cyclops and Jean could be alive.
That seems more logical, because the time travel gets rid of TLS and XMO: Wolverine and creates a brand new continuity with much more freedom and where the deaths/curings of X3 didn't happen.
