Bryan Singer isn't gonna eliminate all the events of the original trilogy while he already said he's not ignoring any films and that will still be the same case after DOFP ends. Plus the original trilogy and The Wolverine would just look really pointless if they are gonna wipe them out just because of 1 film.
