    It doesn't matter if the rumoured ending to DOFP is a happy one. It hints at a perfect blank slate to build upon.

    Also, a happy ending could then turn into a darker one during a post-credits stinger, like some sort of twist.

    problem with using 1 cast is that either way you either lose actors like either lawrence or mckellen, and you got this story involves time travel *shrug*, seems to stand out to me personally

    although i dunno whether can see them going the Xavier is assassinated route because then that would mean no patrick stewart and i don't think FOX would want that, i can see some liberties being taken like DOFP

    A happy ending between Professor Xavier and Magneto and the avoidance of a dystopian future caused by their feud. It doesn't guarantee a happy ending between them and everyone else.

    This definetly seems to be the case.

    Im sure this was all in the plan since that year, makes perfect sense.

    Bryan and Lauren have had plenty of discussions all these years and that treatment was more than likely this whole Back to back sequels (basically)

    Yeah, I really dont know just going off what he said. Im curious on how this fits with everything else they are planning. Thought for sure this would come post Cable introduction.

    Maybe they are also crossing FF here since they are out a year before and Kinbergs attached to everything now. Personally I dont want those two crossing paths in that story, but its seeming likely.

    Post credit scenes are usually no more than 1 minute.And something like seems more than 1 minute.I could see brief scene of Apocalypse but not a major sequenze.

    Exactly. An amazing sting in the tale.

    I'm sure they had those ideas in mind, though the details will change. It just needed the studio to agree to do it. It seems that Fox has enough faith in DoFP to go forward already with a follow-up, which is very good news.

    The rumored ending hints at happy ending for X-Men characters and erasing
    of trilogy+The wolverine.Now if that Is true The more logicil thinking would
    be post 1973 set sequel with Apocalypse as villain.

    1991 Desert Storm. Recruit Ororo.

    In 1991 they would be:
    Cyclops 22 (16 in Origins-1985)
    Storm 21
    Jean 17 (12 in 1986, 20 years ago to 2006)
    Gambit 26 (if he was 20 in Origins).

    Xavier 59
    Magneto 58
    Beast 50
    This three would need good makeup, McAvoy definitely baldhead.

    I wonder what has been doing Mystique since 1973 in new timeline, is she working for Apocalypse now, if Erik isn't villain?

    I think he will but I expect him to at the very least produce it.

    Days of Future Past is resetting the timeline in order to pass the torch to the younger cast. After 1973, continuity is free from the first six films.

    The X-Men that will continue starring in these movies (and have the majority of screentime in Days of Future Past) are McAvoy's Xavier, Jackman's Wolverine, Fassbender's Magneto, Lawrence's Mystique, Hoult's Beast and the newcomers who haven't been cast yet.

    I'm thinking 80s. Like Days of Future Past, ten years later.

    Scott would be in his late 20s, considering he was a Senior in 1979 (Origins).

    Jean was a teenager when Xavier and Magneto went to see her in 1993 (Opening of X3), but they can retcon that to make her 18-21 in the 80s.

    Storm was a little girl in 1973 (Origins), so she's close to Scott's age.

    None of this is backed up by anything. Most of this is what YOU THINK will happen.

    I expect so. At the very least he's obviously heavily involved.

    I wonder if they'll try to get Mangold involved creatively.

    Probelms with your sceniro.

    Origins If included in timeline of films Is In 1970's.

    Future of DOFP Is 2023.That retconns timeframe of Last stand as 2012/2013

    Some have insisted Jean Is 30 In last Stand.And cyclops and Storm are basiclly her age.So if true you couldn't have 16 year Cyclops,Jean,and Storm till Late 1990's.If you say they were In mid 30's In Trilogy maybe you can get away with them as 16 In early 1990's.And I doudt they would jump any further than early 1980's.

    Of course they could go the star Trek method and complete Ignore Trilogy and wolverine films after the time travel.
