But see that's the thing, a sequel set in the "present" time wouldn't make sense because said present time no longer exists. It would be like making a sequel to Biff's world in Back to The Future 2.
The present is up in the air now & whatever it ends up being in the conclusion of Days of Future Past, I can't see the studio choosing to follow up on that instead of making a sequel starring the 1973 cast.
