things have clearly changed after all these years in the comic movies state
Marvel achieved something really huge with Avengers. Thats why all the studios are now thinking bigger.
And lets be honest, what biggest thing Fox could do with the X-men franchise appart from getting the full original cast back for X4 or even X4 and X5?
Thats their wildest card. I dont know if they will play it, but thats their wildest card, and more if they use a villain as famous as Apocalypse, as most of the users have mentioned.
Days of future past is the very first big move from the studio regarding this franchise. And Im sure this wont be the last big x-men movie of the franchise.
Next Big X-Men Crossover
* 2017- X-Men: Age of Apocalypse
Edit: Forget about 2017:
Official announcement -> X-MEN: APOCALYPSE - MAY 27, 2016!!!!
