The next question is where Wolverine fits into things. Will they just have him as the maverick lone-wolf, which is what he should be if we go by the comics, or will the studio want him as leader?

It's the balance/dynamics of Storm, Wolverine and Cyclops that needs dealing with.

Maybe one of them ends up leading a second team, or training a new group of young mutants.
Never considered that. Those two options are things I could see happening in the movieverse. Maybe the X-Men are split into Blue and Gold teams. Wit Cyclops and Wolverine each leading one and Storm as the Headmistress. That could deal with the power dynamics of Storm, Wolverine and Cyclops in a way that appease fans, the studio and the actors' egos. Cause it would have been a huge demotion for Halle to go from leading the team to being nothing but a secondary character again. Which is what would happen as Singer and co. clearly can't think of a use for storm or give her a character arc.
