Re: X-Men: Apocalypse coming in 2016!
There are a number of options available to them story-wise when it comes to this movie, and the 'era' in which it's set is more than likely going to depend on which story or stories they decide to draw on for inspiration and on exactly where things stand continuity-wise at the end of DoFP.
I personally think it's more organic for the overall universe of the franchise to draw on the story of X-Factor #6 and some of the other X-Factor stories he featured in as inspiration and use the FC cast, but we'll see what actually ends up happening.
