But DoFP is in the position to fix a lot of it. At least give us a reason to understand why there are so many inconsistencies. (why Hank McCoy is human in X1, why Emma is older in FC than in O:W, etc.) doesnt even have to be a direct reason, but a one liner about the fabric of space time going all screwy would at least be something
Spending time clearing up past inconsistencies may please die-hards, but it could come at the expense of attracting new fans to a franchise that is in need of some major revitalization. What's most important for the future of the X-Men franchise is that by the end of DOFP Singer has put together a fresh, new team set in the present with which to spin off a new series of films. Otherwise going back in time for the last two team ups would have been a huge waste of time.
