the present would be our present. Just because DOFP could change the timeline, that doesnt mean the whole x-men world dissapears, lol
the thing is, with Marvel creating a shared universe set in present time, and Warner doing the same in the near future, I highly doubt wont do the same, and just stick in the past for the rest of this decade.
As many fans have said many times on the board or any other site out there, the most famous characters are Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Rogue, Iceman, Gambit, Beast....... but Fox cant use them in the past, so thats why they are probably tempted to move to the present sooner rather than later.
Next Big X-Men Crossover
