Two X-Men producers, Hutch Parker and Lauren S.Donner, have mentioned continuing with OT cast too.
So its kind of ironic that the ones not seeing it are the fans, lol.
Fox and producers now know perfectly the potential the fanchise has right now, with both casts. So no way they will get rid of any of the two casts. Not when Singer is back and all the OT actors are open to do more movies.
They have a goldmine, so they will exploit it more than ever.
