No, it wouldn't be a good decision because most casual viewers are going to watch the movie because of Hugh Jackman/Wolverine. Its going to be as bad as killing Cyclops during the first 20 minutes of the movie. Even if DOFP turned out to be a good movie, killing Wolverine would still be very noticeable and disappointing to a lot of casual viewers.
