It's not a bold statement at all. I'm speaking about how I think audiences--including the fanboy community--feel NOW.
Do you sense overall hype and excitement about Wolverine--which is dropping THIS SUMMER? I certainly don't. None of my friends, coworkers, etc. give a damn. It reads like something they've seen before. The trailer seems to have done little to ignite the base, BMM. And general audiences are all about that Iron Man
and Man Of Steel
You only get so many chances in this industry. XOW was a poor film but unfortunately it came behind another mediocre X-film--that he was the lead in. When you add the variables up--as you put it--the sum results in the audience's lack of support for XFC. And that film's under-performance will have a bearing on this upcoming Wolverine
