I'd sooner believe that it's for a possible X4 storyline. Fox keeping options open.
Heck I don't know why Fox just doesn't secure the rights to a number of X-title event names.
They could even resurrect certain players and recast easier by doing Future's Past as part of the story element for X4
I will be disappointed if the first class sequel treads on this territory. I think they should bite the bullet and run with X4-6 (new cast if necessary): X4 Marauders Massacre; X5 Horsemen of Apocalypse; X6 Days of Futures Past/Age of Apocalypse or a Cable spin off set in this era.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

I don't think that this necessarily means that the movie will be based on the classic story of that name any more than First Class was an adaptation of the comic of that name. It's probably just a title that someone felt lends itself to a prequel/ period movie.

Of course, it's possible that this story could be tailored so as to feature the Patrick Stewart/ Hugh Jackman cast and the James McAvoy/ Michael Fassbender one. But I think that First Class has proven successful enough for them to make a straight sequel without either the need to reinvolve the original cast or to use time-travel to do a 'Star Trek 09' and semi-reboot the timeline. I think that this is just a title, nothing more.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

While I'll be surprised if they end up going with the Days of Future Past storyline for the First Class sequel, I will admit that seeing Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen possibly sharing the same frame would be too awesome for words.

Plus, introducing the storyline in the sequel allows the filmmakers a better opportunity to tie this "prequel verse" with the Singer verse. It would also give everyone a chance to see some familiar faces... which I don't think anyone would be adverse to. I'd love to see Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, and others again.

Hell, this might be crazy, but perhaps the inclusion of this story could erase X-Men: The Last Stand from continuity? Maybe that's being too optimistic.

^ So is our new motto 'Will Singer erase The Last Stand'?

I think it is "Singer Is Erasing The Last Stand'. To me there is no question about it
