Excepting any of the newer superhero franchises like the Avengers, yes X-Men is the only superhero franchise to still not have been rebooted. That's quite a feat when you think about it. This franchise started in 2000 and ushered in the current era of superhero blockbuster films as we know it and still remains thirteen years later with more or less the same continuity, cast and production team.

I'm expecting big things from Days of Future Past. If X1 was able to usher in a new era for superhero movies then I expect DOFP to push the boundaries and further evolve superhero movies. The X-Men have always set the standard and other superhero franchises were compared to X-Men that stopped with the X3 and XO:W but First Class has brought that back around paved the way for DOFP and I hope it does something that shakes up superhero movies as a sub-genre and causes even Marvel to raise their eyebrows and sit up.
