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.
I think you didn't understand the point, snikt.
We're talking about the audience... and the interest in the x-men.
Ironman and Dark night have surpasss X-men numbers, Dark night was a bomb, bigger than Spiderman, and Ironman being the first movie and surpassing X-men 3, that's really relevant.
Ironman 2 probably will have a better boxoffice than the first, and with The Avengers, people could end loving that franchise, and start forgeting the x-men.... that's the point.
Avengers movie is 3 years since now, but I'm sure it will have a big impact in the boxoffice, bigger than Ironman, and obviously, bigger than X-men.
will Fox make X-men 4?..... we don't know yet....
will Marvel do Avengers 2?.... that's for sure.
Next Big X-Men Crossover
* 2017- X-Men: Age of Apocalypse
Edit: Forget about 2017:
Official announcement -> X-MEN: APOCALYPSE - MAY 27, 2016!!!!
