I think it's just a matter of fans wanting to see the characters living up to their potential. Very few characters have. Storm, Cyclops, Gambit, Rogue, Banshee, Emma, Havok, Colossus and Deadpool never really came close to having the proper development or adaption they deserve compared to their comic counterparts. Being 5 movies into a franchise there is no doubt they could have made many better decisions on how to take these characters in future films.
Not to say it won't be in DOFP's best intentions to ditch them, but letting go of some of the FC team is a bummer because that's more then likely all that will ever become of those characters. If they don't come back here it's probably safe to say thats it for them.
