Heffaloo: At this point it would be entirely up to whomever makes the next film to decide what from previous films, if anything, counts at all.
MmmmBacon: Nothing from "X-Men 3" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" should be considered canon. In fact, someone competent should be given a shot at re-doing the Dark Phoenix saga.
Heffaloo: Many of us already refuse to admit those two films exist anyway.
Hoban Washburne: This is why I was really disappointed to learn that First Class wasn't a true reboot. I'm fine with telling a different version of the origin of the X-Men, but then saying "Oh yeah, it fits in with the other movies too" is silly. Either start from scratch or make a movie that fits the series. Singer and Co. just kind of halfway did both. That's not to say I didn't like First Class or that I won't watch DOFP, but the continuity is a farking mess.
Mentat: DOFP is a soft reboot designed to erase away those continuity issues. For all intents and purposes, the First Class timeline is the real timeline now.

There are a lot of weird inconsistencies like the Summers brothers being so far apart in age, Moira being two different people, etc. It's not the end of the world, but I think it would have been a stronger choice to truly start over with First Class/DOFP.
Pokey.Clyde: Heffaloo: Many of us already refuse to admit those two films exist anyway.Next you're going to tell me they never made any sequels to Highlander or The Matrix, either ;)
