Obviously all the hardcore OT fans are gonna want more films with just them. It's nostalgic at this point and we all have our favorite characters. I get that.
But seriously, Singer is right. The X-Men franchise has more characters then the MCU on it's own and its time to expand it after 7 freakin films about the same characters. If they wait 6 years they may miss their chance to do that properly. People like when these things are all connected. Waiting too long to do that will have the opposite effect.

Yeah. Fox needs to get their **** together. Why won't that studio learn? Gotta give Singer some credit for spreading the DofP word through twitter.
I think the fact that the MCU were all new and fresh franchises had alot to do with things. Unless you make a ****** one like GL, people really like big new films and characters. A new property is hard to find nowadays.
