I think there are a lot of reasons why X-Men Origins performed poorly, but it wasn't because audiences were tired of Jackman.
The original context of the conversation is about the future Wolverine film and how it will impact DoFP. I do believe that audiences are fatigued on the character NOW due to overexposure from the first solo film and the subsequent appearances everywhere else--plus the trilogy domination. And yes, I do believe that audiences were turned off on him during XOW's initial run--which is partly demonstrated by its lack of legs in theaters. I've never felt overexposure was the only reason for its under performance (it was a genuinely bad film), but by the same token, I know a lot of people who did not check it out because he wasn't "with" the X-Men. He performs best when with his ensemble.

X-Men: Apocalypse seems hellbent on giving us more of what fans dread most:
Katniss dipped in a bucket of blue paint.
