She could, anything is possible. I just don't think any of the modern team will stand out as a specific lead. They probably will all have their time but as an ensemble. If it's between Mystique and Storm, Raven was already set up with multiple relationships with every lead in FC. If they want to follow up on that and transition her into her X1 counterpart, that will require screen time.
Tough to tell with little info regarding plot, but we do know alot of the film is in the 70s. So unless Storm is in that time period that gives Mystique more possible screen time especially since there aren't any female characters as of now for the FC crew.
