These are team movies though, not solo character films. More can be done with spreading out time to characters on screen. Characters like Storm and Cyclops obviously could have had more development and screentime but you cant possibly give 20 X men all the development Wolverine or Magneto gets each film. 5 shouldnt be difficult. They all interact with eachohter for the most part anyways. There will always be characters who lose out, just how it goes. They just gotta make sure one character isnt taking up all the screen time at the expense of others.

I disagree, it worked fine for just about everyone who saw that film. To each their own though.
