I don't think we should compare the First Class series to Star Trek and Amazing Spider-Man. First Class was not a reboot, while those films were reboots. Those movies featured the same leading character/s from the first film of the previous movie series (Spider-Man for Amazing Spider-Man/Spock and Kirk for Star Trek). X-Men: First Class did not have Wolverine as the leading character. Magneto and Professor X were the leading characters but they were the younger versions of them unlike with the first movie. So its different.

That's like saying Marvel is losing momentum because they going solo with Iron Man 3 and Thor TDW, instead of making Avengers 2 first.
I think FC2 would lose momentum because I don't think FC2 would feature Wolverine and Wolverine is money well unless Wolverine joins the 60s X-Men team at the end of DOFP. Wolverine is the #1 star of the X-Men movie series.

Compare to Iron Man 3 and Thor 2. I think their movies will do well on their own given on how their debut film performed at the worldwide box-office.

The future of X-Men's original trilogy cast begins this May!

Hugh Jackman - Halle Berry - Ian McKellen - Patrick Stewart
Anna Paquin - Shawn Ashmore - Daniel Cudmore - Ellen Page
