Re: The Avengers (2011) = the end of the X-men?
The Avengers franchise has NOTHING to do with The X-MEN franchise.
Its just testament of another studio rallying the troops for the Summer blockbuster war.
FOX was on top for a few years until SONY's Spider Man movies took over.
Now we got Warner Bros. with their Billion Dollar Batman franchise that hasn't even entered its third installment.
FOX will continue to make X-MEN movies.
SONY will continue to make Spider Man movies.
Warner Bros. will continue to make Batman movies.
*MARVEL will continue making Avengers movies.
