The reason we're getting all the players from the original trilogy back is that the film is based on Days of Future Past. You need them there to tell this particular story. I don't see the studio financing an X-Men movie starring Anna Paquin, Ellen Page & Shawn Ashmore. Even if Jackman was in the picture I just don't see them doing that.
I think after Days of Future Past we'll get another X-Men movie three years down the line that continues the story that ended in '73. I doubt we'll see the cast of the original trilogy in that film but rather young versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey & Storm and I think like this film it will jump forward a decade & be set in the 80s.
Do you realize that FOX brought back the original cast to appeal to casual viewers especially how First Class became the lowest-grossing X-Men movie yet at domestic box-office.
If FOX is so confident with the First Class cast headlining their own movie, they wouldn't bring back the OT actors.

I doubt the opening monologue would be something like that. Its probably going to be a speech just like in X1/X2.
My favorite trailer for a X-Men movie is the one for X2, that featured their codenames, then the tagline "its time for those who are different to stand united" and the background music just gave me chills! I hope DOFP gets a trailer like that! I would be so thrilled for that!
