Some need to accept not all marvel films make avengers or even Iron Man money.
Cap has 4 weeks before the Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits.
X-Men Is well known and has cast members of original trilogy In it.Noone knows much about GotG.Thinking It will immedetly doing better than DOFP.
The compession with Days of future past should not be first class but The Last Stand.
DOFP clearly has some advantages over GOTG - a proven brand, a director with a superior track record and a better known cast. And since FOX really needs this film to hit big in order to keep the X-Men series viable going forward, they studio is likely to put a great deal of money into marketing the film.
But XMFC had many of those same advantages in the summer of 2011, and the film came in behind unknown quantities Thor and Cap in worldwide box office revenues. Both films should be competitive at the box office and battle for the third and fourth spots among Marvel superhero films behind TASM2 and CA:TWS - which is the closest to Avengers 1.5 of the MCU sequels.
