But to me, both the 70s and the dark!future settings are so far removed from the settings of FC and X3 that I find it hard to see DoFP as a direct sequel to either film.

As to what sets of characters are more "important", well both are. The plot wouldn't happen in the first place without the OT characters setting things in motion, and it's up to FC characters plus Wolverine to actually do the work in the past and change the future.

I'm a bit sceptical about how much proper character development is going to happen in the future setting, considering the sheer amount of characters and the fact that most of the film is set in the 70s.
Singer calls it an inbetweenquel. So that in a sense is a sequel to both. As for character development in the future, there can't really be much as the events will be wiped from canon once the past is changed. But it should at least give us a good idea of what the characters are a like a decade or later after X3. We'll get to see what grown-up Rogue, Iceman, Kitty and Colossus are like. Their persona's would still be very similar in the altered future. I'm sure whatever interpersonal relationships issues there are will also somehow transfer to the altered timeline. Beyond that I doubt we will see big arcs on each given none of it really matters in the end.
