Nothing was ever confirmed, at least not back then.

Haha. Well, it wouldn't be harder for Cyclops to have a bigger role in Singer's film than in The Last Stand. That said, I don't think Emma Frost would have had anything to do with it, as she would have been older, and possibly a former love interest of Xavier's.

It has since been revealed, however, in interviews with X2 writer Mike Dougherty, that some of the ideas being tossed around for Cyclops in Singer's version of X-Men 3 are that a guilt-ridden Cyclops would have been responsible for building the Danger Room, pushing the X-Men to train harder, as if maybe the X-Men had been more prepared Jean wouldn't have died. That tidbit alone sounds like a better follow up than "Scott's a changed man..." *poof* and that he would have had a better role in Singer's X-Men 3.
