Another thing to consider here is Fox only have so long between films to produce another or they lose the film rights back to Marvel. They don't have the luxury of letting the franchise rest or breathe for a decade or 2 between any new version. They have so many years to keep them going with the current cast, or they recast & reboot, or they lose any future films with them forever.

As the X films are the only CBM's they have done any good with the notion they would consider the OT cast the end of the matter (once this cast is too old to play them) is utterly absurd.

They will recast/reboot eventually no matter what. They will not let their rights with this cash cow go.

If anyone doesn't like that? You think for one minute that Fox cares?

This is business for them at the end of the day. The are in this to make money, not fret over the feelings of any fans who might not want a reboot for another decade or more (or at all as the case may be).
