The FC cast could possibly continue for the next decade, but there are a number of actors from the original trilogy who aren't getting any younger. I would think X4 and X5 could be a strong possibility of retaining the original cast. But then again DOFP might be the last appearance of the original cast, with X4 essentially being a reboot in an entire new universe (X-Men & Fantastic Four) with new actors playing the roles.
I don't see how they are gonna reboot this after DOFP, because reboot will require them to recast everyone that appeared in the original trilogy. Even if the happenings of the original trilogy don't matter anymore because they altered the future with DOFP, if they still cast Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as the older Professor X, that wouldn't look like a reboot to casual viewers and they would have to explain that just to be clear.
