Yeah that's what I was thinking, although we've really only got that wiggy statistic on the Trask Website about sentinels produced between 1973-1996, which even I'll admit isn't definitive proof. It would explain why the X-Men were practicing against sentinels in the danger room though -- that would at least be consistent.

I really like this idea.

It also seems reminiscent of Terminator, which could explain why Singer felt compelled to speak with James Cameron. Singer himself has made it seem like he showed his ideas to Cameron because he wanted Cameron's take on whether his scenario "made sense" or not. But I wonder if he was also looking for Cameron's approval on a plot that bore a lot of similarity to Terminator.
