Popular doesn't necessarily mean Cyclops and Jean Grey. Polaris, Sunfire, Havok, Banshee, etc. are all considered popular X-Men characters by some standard or another.
We have no idea WHAT Singer is going to do with this movie, how he's going to rectify continuity, and what characters are or aren't going to appear. So to say outright that characters such as young Cyclops or Jean won't be in it is kind of silly.
We don't know WHO is going to be the 70's X-Men team at this point. Nothing is clearly in or out of the question at this point, it's just assumptions and speculation.
