The claim that we have a perfectly good new cast is assuming a lot, since the only characters guaranteed to survive this movie are Xavier and Magneto. Before Singer came on the concept of a trilogy was floating around and it made more sense then because they were building a cast that would stay on for a long time for sure while with this new cast it's only speculation. Unless the next film yet again takes place while Storm, Cyclops, and Jean are too young to participate, there is going to have to be a big time jump and they'll have to get a new cast for a First Class 2. Even if Havok or Banshee survive, they clearly can't play the same character if the time period is supposed to be 20 years later with shooting only 1-3 years later.

Under the original concept for First Class I would have said it was 100% guaranteed they would not make an X4 because they would be setting up characters they would be following for multiple films but it's not as likely they're going to make a trilogy all set in the 60s under Singer's concept. First Class seems like it could easily be just a look back at the past and not a saga that takes place in the past. The concept of a line of X-Men Origins films fell apart after Wolverine so the concept of First Class trilogy could easily fall apart as well if Singer wants something else.
