But yeah, I don't think he needs to be in an X-Men film in order for it to be a success.
He doesn't, there are plenty of great characters that are being shafted in favor of Wolverine/Hugh, if Fox really wants to build its own universe they're gonna have to have faith and interest in developing characters that aren't Wolverine.
