Exactly! It was even discussed in the movie between the Professor and Storm ("Scott is a changed man..."). Clearly the intention was for Scott to take over, but the situation had changed.

It wasn't like Storm was demanding to take over. It's not like there was a scene where she cleared out Scott's room and tossed it all in the trash.

She was the one who finally said the school would stay open. I loved that scene. She was the one who told Logan to get over himself and not go after Jean--and was in line with the previous movies, she gave him a similar speech in X1 when he tried to take off after Rogue alone.

”We live in times when hate and fear seem stronger. We rise and fall, and light from dying embers: remembrances that hope and love last longer. And love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside."
