While I refuse to believe something like making Ice Man a teenager, or centering the films around Wolverine destroyed the franchise, I do believe diminishing returns after the first two films kept it out of the 500 M+ range.

We're probably going to see each marvel phase 2 sequel break $500 M, something that no X-film has managed to do. I think that shows a bit of failure on Fox's part.
