Certainly a provocative ending, but I'm not sure it would resonate with the masses. Especially if there is another purple guy smiling at the end. I also don't believe FF fits into the picture in any way regarding DoFP. It may have influence with films later on, but I don't think Singer will shoehorn that stuff into this one.
So to be left with a few remaining mutants of the franchise to continue forward with that dark storyline. That might be a bit much, what if it turns out like a bad dream that someone is having at the end,maybe they could leave it like that.
