So they should just continue w/ the original series.
That's why I said DoFP changes the whole paradigm moving forward. If it lives up to it's potential, it could have an Avengers-esque effect on every X-film moving forward. The Avengers is the top dog franchise in the MCU (like the X-Men is at Fox), but that doesn't stop Marvel from doing other films. Thats how film properties are built. You brought up Thor and Cap, well those films will have big increases because of their association with the Avengers. IM3 will double the first two films. Again, the same could happen in the post-DoFP era at Fox. I guarantee you they have a similar model in mind.

Keep in mind that Thor and Cap were part of the new and exciting MCU and who hadn't had big budget films before (forget the Corman Cap). On the other hand you had a poorly marketed quasi-reboot/prequel that was coming on the heels of two turds. Apples and oranges really.
