Re: Girl gone ROGUE Thread (ANNA PAQUIN's BACK!) - Part 2
Mystique isn't needed for any further OT films. There would be new villains because Magneto and the Brotherhood have been tapped out. Professor X and Wolverine aren't necessarily needed either. Neither have been on every X-Men team in the comics so they don't have to be in sequels either.
It's easy to give sequels to both the OT and FC characters. We never saw them before 1979/1980 in the OT timeline prior to FC and it will have changed after DOFP anyway so they can do another movie after 1973. There is so much they can do in an altered future with the OT cast. DOFP is giving a fresh canvas once it ends. I doubt many fans would complain if both got sequels.
