I don't want to see Jean/Cyke/Storm relegated to FC teeny bopper treatment. Jean would have to be the lead female in a FC 3 movie. You want an actress with talent. You could carry those actors into an AoA movie and film a lot of backstory, flashbacks, and what not, but I don't think they'd be able to play their older versions. Could you go from FC3 in 2017 to an AoA in 2020 or 2021, and forward the timeline 20-30 years with the same actors? Not sure that would be practical, even with makeup and CGI.
Unless they bring the younger versions into the future, like All-New X-Men did with its time travel story.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
