The best way for this franchise is how to make it bigger and more appealing to the general audience. No one is asking for a fresh take or a new cast. Just because most superhero films are being rebooted right now because of box-office disappointments in the past (Fantastic Four: Rise of Silver Surfer, Superman Returns, Batman & Robin) and directors leaving the franchise (Spider-Man 3 and Dark Knight Rises. It doesn't mean X-Men should do a reboot too. There are still a lot of franchises that started in the last decade or the 90s that are still going strong and making movies with the original cast or the main lead like Fast/Furious, Mission: Impossible, Men in Black.
This X-Men series isn't gonna get more money if they are gonna ditching the original cast who are the main draw for X-Men: Days of Future Past.
