Then FC3 can make a profit on its own without the help of the OT. That was my initial impression when the OT cast came back and it is still my impression now.
So they are using the OT cast so a film featuring the FC cast would sell more.
Then they will dump the OT cast after DOFP?
Thats not a good strategy. If the OT cast is the one that will really get the mainstream viewers to watch a X-Men movie then they should be making more films with them.
EDIT: And if FOX is just gonna use the OT cast to boost the FC cast, why didn't they bring back the majority of the FC cast? Especially Emma Frost?! The line-up that they have for the future/modern-day world is bigger than their line-up for the 70s.
