The problem with FOX is they don't know have to maximize their budget and they should work with better visual effects companies.
X3 had the budget but not the respect and that's why it was rushed out after Singer's move. And really the 1st couple of films are what educate the general audience what ballpark to place the X-Men property in. So they now see it as a smaller property than certain other things that it really should have been bigger than if the studio had had that confidence all the way through. If the 1st ever X-film was coming out post Avengers it would get a monster budget out of the gate and would be treated like gold dust. But yes on the other point that Fox should have got better FX value for money for the dollars spent on X3 & Origins. I mean Colossus X3 Vs X2....
