Thats their wildest card. I dont know if they will play it, but thats their wildest card, and more if they use a villain as famous as Apocalypse, as most of the users have mentioned.
I would say that, between the two, this is their wildest card. Days of Future Past is a crossover movie, featuring the old cast, new cast, time travel, and robots. There are more possibilities with this movie than a sequel to The Last Stand, featuring Apocalypse.

No, they didn't. You make it sound like Fox issued a press release, stating its X-Men film goals for the next 10 years. That's not the case at all. It has always been very up in the air. It still is.

The problem with FOX is they don't know have to maximize their budget and they should work with better visual effects companies.
The problem with Fox is that the studio waits to the last minute to do things, and that costs money--a lot of money.
