You can't say that people were sick of Wolverine based on those numbers. It was the quick decline that was the problem, but that is the result of bad word-of-mouth and an overall bad movie. That opening blows Cap out of the water. And as psylockecolossus mentioned, you factor in inflation, and XMO:W made quite a bit more than Cap.
These people can say what they want about the box-office performances of these x-Men films. But based on the marketing strategies of FOX and the critical response of X3/XOW, they still earned good money.
