I suppose the true test will always have been: sometime in a generation or so, when these movies have run their course, could a first-time viewer watch, in release order, X-Men, X2, First Class, *maybe* The Wolverine and then Days of Future Past without feeling as though there was something significant missing?

... If so, I'll be happy.
Not to put a damper on it, but there's the risk that the first-time viewer could become a Hugh Jackman completist and watch both X3 and that movie with the ridiculous title. Still, they'll probably be more affected by Les Mis and The Prestige.

I still find it interesting that Singer went to Cameron of all people to discuss the time travel related issues in Days. I'm wondering if he won't attempt to use the "Terminator" style in the film.
I used to think that the plot of The Terminator was suspiciously similar to Days Of Future Past. As it turns out, it's possible that both owe a debt to Harlan Ellison.
