Singer already said that this is a sequel to X3 and FC. So DOFP is both X4 and FC2. I'm not disregarding what Singer said. You made it sound like we are making this up.
"I wrote the story for ‘First Class' and produced it so this is a chance to not do a sequel to ‘First Class' or a sequel to ‘X-Men 3' but to do both I guess in a way," Singer told us. "In ‘Days of Future Past' the story structure is a fantastic way to do that."

Do you think, if they make an X-Men movie after this, ostensibly without the FC cast, they'll call it X-Men 5?
Days of Futue Past is also a sequel to First Class but the question of this thread is which movie series will have the 1st #4 movie. And DOFP is both First Class movie #2 and X-Men (with the original cast) movie #4, so X-Men gets the title for having the 1st #4 movie. It doesn't matter if the title of the movie is X-Men 4. Its a continuation to X-Men 3, its not a spin-off or a prequel, so its X-Men 4.
