Re: Should DOFP be used to reboot the X-Men franchise?
IMHO this film will be a reboot the way Star Treks alternate timeline was a reboot.
Unable to stop the genocidal future for mutants, They sent Wolverine back to reach the Xavier and Magneto of the past to make sure the mistakes of the existing timeline (leading to mutants being hunted and wiped out) are changed.
Sequels will most likely require the films to go backwards as I think almost everyone will die in the existing (OT cast) scenes.
In fact, Ill bet that last shot of Xavier from the trailer is him about to be being blasted by a Sentinel
