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).
I really wouldn't be too sure about that.. there's plenty of Mutant spin-off teams and individual mutants who could have solo films... it's actually pretty damn near infinite.

X-force, New Mutants, Excalibur (if they own them), Age of Apocalypse, X-factor, Young X-men, Deadpool, etc.........
