If they just continue with X-Men 5! They don't have to hire a whole new cast, they don't have to retell the world of the X-Men to the audience again and the general audience wouldn't have to adjust with the actors portraying Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, etc...
Agreed! At this point, they have reached an awesome place, in terms of storytelling: the arrival and departure of the cure leaves the characters in a very interesting social and political landscape.
