In my opinion, just put them all or better, give all of them a character poster.

Storm is a fan favourite that needs to finally be done justice and Halle Berry is certainly an A list star that probably would not have signed on unless she knew that Storm had an important (though not necessarily large part). Where as Mystique ism't really a fan favourite (she has been relevant in the comics for quite a while) but Jeniffer Lawrence is definitely huge!!
Having said that though Halle Berry was definitely as big as her when she won her Oscar back in 2001 but she wasn't given that much screen time or character development for X2 despite her popularity. I don't think Bryan will go out of his way to give Mystique a huge role as he didn't for Storm. but just like X2 with Halle, Fox will market the hell out of JLaw.
It would be amazing if DOFP Storm ended as the best Storm yet and if she gets a good response from the critics/audience, Halle Berry will definitely be back for a 5th X-Men film and I'm sure FOX wouldn't hesitate to bring her back unless they kill her in DOFP.
