Re: Bryan Singer Directing X-Men: Days of Future Past - Part 2
Yes, but the lower commercial performance of First Class was mostly likely BECAUSE of Wolverine, which did a lot of damage to the franchise, which is clearly why Fox stalled afterwards and have felt the NEED to do their semi reboot with First Class.
I mean, as I've said before, Thor and Captain America didn't do as well as Iron Man because they were obviously lacking the star power of RDJ, but did that negatively affect the Avengers?
Once people accept and adjust to a character and their world, they are on board.
And I wish you people would stop disparaging First Class. Who CARES that it didn't do as well as whatever X-Movie before, after the debacle and Wolverine and the state of the franchise, the fact that First Class even made money AND was a critical success, is a huge victory for Fox.
