^ i just think all of that is unnecessary (especially when you are using one of the great story arcs to do the dirty work).. they should have just gone with a clean break.. and reestablish things..
then you can use the DOFP story line somewhere between movies 3-5.. 1 and 2 should be about introducing guys to the already established team, them fighting sentinels, magneto and juggs
and i dont mean in an "the amazing spider-man" type of way where they retell the story all over again.. we know the characters, we can start in a world where the base x-men are together and exist in this horrible world where they suffer for simply being born different
We thought they were doing that with First Class but obviously not since FOX didn't hold on to the writer(s) or director to just continue from there and ignore the past movies. So now we got this.
I don't mind them doing this with DoFP cuz if not this one it would've been some other story everybody likes. I had a similar idea but to do it with Age of Apocalypse cuz Jackman aint gonna be Wolverine forever and there can be better actors to portray Storm, Rogue, Kitty, Gambit, and Iceman among others. The way I see it when this in-universe reboot done that's when they'll probably interact with the F4 and that should at least be cool cuz that's new ground since there aren't plenty stories connecting the two in the comics but plenty potential connection given each of their histories. Plus if either or both suck I imagine FOX will give up at some point or give the Marvel properties to some director with a clear vision to ride out for 10 years and if that fails I think then they'll probably give it back to Marvel since by then they'll have succeeded in making billions off of the likes of Inhumans, Defenders, and Forbush Man.
