The Avengers wasn't Iron Man 3 or Thor 2 because it effectively started a completely new series. Using the characters from the other series, but also serving as an introduction for the viewers who never watched the stand-alone films. That's unlikely to be the case for DoFP.

I think the fact that this future is meant to be wiped out by the end of the film kinda complicates things.

Say you call this a sequel to X3, and then afterwards you make another film with the original cast. It can't be a sequel to DoFP because that version of the future would not exist and have no continuation. Would it be another sequel to X3 then, and what would that make of DoFP?
