Wolverine, maybe, but "other vets"? As far as I can remember Wolverine didn't have any of them other than a very brief Patrick Stewart cameo. I can't see how that movie can be a proof of their popularity.
I find weird the argument that the popularity of Wolverine somehow automatically extends onto the rest of the original cast.

So if Wolverine is the crucial difference, does it even matter then if the rest of the old cast are in the movie or not? I mean from the point of view of the general public, not the fans on the message boards.
