The X films had popular cartoons and comics preceding them. Iron Man was a second tier character. IMO, fox has ultimately been holding these films back, as much as love X1, X2, and First Class.

It's like you said: they've been holding themselves back. You've got the much loved Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, McKellen's Magneto and Stewart's Professor X, a tried and true cast of iconic comic characters....and the highest grossing film so far has only been in the 200 mill range domestically?

An X-Men film potentially has the all out action of Avengers AND the darker social themes of a Nolan Batman flick.

Fox needs to step it up big time for this, IMO.
Totally agreed. I've been saying all those things for a long time.
