As popular as the FC trio are right now, they are going to be completely overshadowed by the oldCast trio (not to mention who the hell else will be signed on from the old cast) and Singer's giant favoritism towards Wolverine and Sir Ian. I'd really, really like to know if all three were in Vaughn's intentions for the film or if it's just Singer trying to bring back as many of his good friends as he can and make up for skipping out on X3 by making X3.5.
Big name or not, Patrick Stewart did a cameo for Wolverine. If the movie is 2.5 hrs a 20 minute future prologue featuring the OT cast and setting up the story would be more than enough screen time.
