Don't you see how that goes both ways though? "They've said it doesn't ignore XFC, most of the XFC cast is back. I think that makes it FC2. Some X3 characters are in it, but that doesn't make it X4. That just means they're including original trilogy characters." And honestly... do you think the next X-Men movie that doesn't feature the FC crew will be called X-Men 5? Really guys, if it was actually X-Men 4, then it would be called "X-Men 4: Days of Future Past." The issue is that while it has sequel elements of an X4, it also has elements of an XFC2, which technically makes it neither or both, but because it's not one or the other it can't be X4 or FC2... it's a new thing. Just because Han and Chewie travel back to meet Jar Jar doesn't make it Episode VII. Usually we judge sequels by chronological order, or at least in time travel stories, cause and effect... but with DOFP all that gets muddled with, so you can't honestly call it either. And having half the cast for X:FC doesn't say anything to you? Just so you know (as I know you already know, but I'm being sarcastic) Days of Future Past is an alternate timeline story for the future, so it's most likely that XFC and X3 crews will be going into the future after Xavier or someone like him has been killed. Do you think, if they make an X-Men movie after this, ostensibly without the FC cast, they'll call it X-Men 5?
