Re: What is DOFP setting the groundwork for?
I think it'll continue as two series that will cross over again. Like the Avengers. We'll get a proper First Class sequel set in the 80s or something without time travel...and a new timeline sequel to the OT with Cyclops back. Then maybe a Fantastic Four movie and it'll all build up to "Age of Apocalypse"...the next cinematic crossover event!
