There should always be the Main X team, but there is just no way they cant fit everything into one film.
...And we need Cyclops back, dont think I can watch another main X men movie without him being an actual leader. Just isnt right.
Yes, I think having 2 rotating films (similar to Blue & Gold teams) where the other X-Men can appear at random at any moment would be great once the current set of films are finished. There's too many must-have core X-Men to introduce/star in one film although they could cross that over for a massive event once all the individual X-Men have been properly fleshed out in their own specific team film.
That crossover film should definitely have Cyke as a proper field leader & the main character who leads Xavier's vision, with Storm as the head of the other team. Then the other must-haves to me to create the ultimate X-Men film are Beast, Wolverine, Jean, Iceman, Angel/Archangel, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Kitty, Psylocke, Rogue, Gambit & Emma Frost (& small appearances somewhere from Havok, Polaris, Quicksilver, Banshee & Forge)!
Having been fully developed previously they won't all need to have starring roles.
If they're willing to get crazy in crossover sequel time then even throw Bishop & Cable into the mix.
