-Patrick Stewart, who is even more exposed than he was prior to X-MEN.
-James McAvoy is nothing to sneeze at
-James Marsden is far more recognizeable now
-Halle Berry is still a big name, if not as popular as she once was
-Nicholas Hoult is on his way to stardom, depending on how JACK THE GIANT SLAYER and WARM BODIES do.
-Anna Paquin's gotten more popular as well.
The lineup for this film is amazing. It has more stars than Avengers did. And the good think is that all of them are getting a lot of attention recently for their work. Even Halle Berry is making headlines for her career instead of her personal life. Things are looking good, and I'd imagine that by 2014 all these stars would be a lot bigger.
