Re: Bryan Singer Directing X-Men: Days of Future Past - Part 2
To me, its not the *star power* that matters the most. The thing thats gonna attract the casual audience the most is the fact the present X-Men (the original trilogy) and cast of X-Men: First Class are going to star in 1 movie. The popularity/star power of Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender is just a plus.
I don't think The Avengers got more than 1billion dollars just because of the star-power of Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L Jackson and Jeremy Renner. The movie got so much money because of the character roster and it was a cross-over movie.
