You hire back and repair relations with the guy that started it all. He gets the original cast back. Boom - you have instant (nearly) guaranteed blockbuster. Pretty simple logic, methinks.

I don't see a traditional First Class sequel happening beyond this. I just don't see a First Class direct sequel having the same draw -- the anticipation's just not there. FOX knows this -- thus DOFP.

I absolutely agree with you!

If FOX thinks they are gonna make more money featuring the cast that started this series, the cast that is portraying more well-known characters, they would be making more films with them. And if DOFP ends up as the top grossing X-Men film, it would encourage them more.
