I sure hope not.
As much as First Class -might- be my favorite of the series, it's not because of the setting.
In fact, I find the setting perhaps the most distracting thing about it. Except for blue and yellow costumes, it just doesn't "look" like X-Men, with an Xavier who can walk and has a full head of hair, Magneto who is young, and Mystique who is Xavier's BFF and a college girl who just wants someone to date, and Moira who is a CIA agent.
Granted, a lot of that is changing now in Days Of Future Past, as Xavier is confined to a wheelchair, Mystique is hardened, Beast is fully blue, etc...
But even with the characters becoming more the iconic characters we all know and love, I still find a Sentinel ruled apocalyptic future where mutants fight for their survival against being put into mutant concentration camps, with characters like more iconic Xavier and Magneto, Storm, Rogue, Colossus, Kitty Pryde, Iceman, and Bishop far more interesting than... 1973.
