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.
I'm sure some of that may be very true. Still, unless they absolutely over-do it with Jackman's Wolverine, which I'm hopeful they won't, I don't think his presence is going to have too much a negative impact on Days of Future Past.
