I kind of do hope it happens though. In an ideal world I'd love a Singer-directed X4... clearing the way for a Vaughn-directed FC3. Though after he bailed I'm not sure he'd ever come back/they'd want him back.
It's a strong possibility that we're all missing the point of Lauren's tweet. Could it be that X-Men: Days Of Future Past
IS X4 as far as the studio is concerned? Think about it. There's absolutely no technical reason why it can't be.
It is obviously picking up after X3. And Bryan Singer is picking up with it. She said it was "coming" as in coming soon. There's no logical reason she'd be referring to a project dropping 3-5 years from now.
I think X-Men Days Of Future Past
is a working title just like X-Men: The Last Stand.
