Lawrence, Fassbender, Hoult and McAvoy are far more popular now than when First Class debuted back in 2011 so they can easily carry a movie by themselves in the current market even moreso than the original cast. Hell, Lawrence is already carrying an entire quadrilogy by herself.
Not to mention they can certainly bolster a direct First Class sequel with even more popular young talent out in the market right now.
