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.
Havok and Banshee are longtime X-Men and yet they were dismissed as c list characters by some In first Class.Sunfire who was only an X_Man In one story as popular X-Man?Seriously.
Since Origins and Last Stand aren't being outright Ignored yes that does rule out Cyclops and jean.Changes to timeline would happen because of time travel not before It.
