Anyway we shall see, if Cyclops returns because of mutants time-traveled to different time periods and changed time periods. Fine but I just don't think as a character, he would automatically improved in the next movie. But if they already have a story in store for him from the moment that they brought him back, then thats gonna be more promising.
The studio never seems to have cared much about Cyclops so I don't think they would agree to the character returning unless a very good story idea is put forward.

There are lots of stories that see Cyclops play a central part. They could involve Sinister (like in the animated series, where he needed Cyclops and Jean to create a perfect strain of mutant) and also Apocalypse (there's a story where Cyclops is one of the The Twelve needed by Apocalypse to evolve into a god).

Singer would soon be able to come up with a great story concept that put Cyclops in a key role. Sinister and Apocalypse seem like very likely villains to appear in the franchise next anyway.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
