I can think of a million reasons for jean to be back, not just defeating the sentinels. Jeans rise from the grave/full transformation in to the phoenix causes the apocalyptic future, thus causing the sentinels to be unleashed upon the mutants.
its a simple concept that can be easily fleshed out, without Famke having to be on set since she's the full phoenix force now. it worked very well in Wolverine & the X-men, I can see it working better in live action, its certainly an ongoing theme/problem in the trilogy. so much that it could completely change everything and everyone. Jean is such a major plot point in the OT that changing the timeline is that much more serious, dangerous and important.
My dream for the credits scene on the Wolverine to be Jean rising from the grave, or simply the Xavier/Logan airport scene with xavier saying some crap like "logan we need you back..." something vague with concern, then just a simple shot of Jeans tombstone to close it out, to plant the idea if what were dealing with in DOFP.
