I mean, if it is true that they only decided to put him in after the fact, then ya its d!ck move, but, we don't know that for sure
While it is definitely possible that Singer always had the speedster in his script it's also just as likely FOX made him write him into the script because of Whedon. From FOX's standpoint it would perceivably help them if people associate the character or characters with them first. While we may believe people won't recognize the character as the same character in both films I'm inclined to believe the audience is not that foolish.
