Re: Evan Peters Joins X-Men: DOFP as Quicksilver
sometimes its a question of "is it worth it to invest all this money in an IP that failed already at the box office and with critics" or "is the chance of this being a success greater than the chance of it bombing again"
if it's gonna cost too much to make a failed IP successful again/revitalise an IP they'd just as sooner say "let it lapse, we'll find something else"
seems to be the case for GR and Punisher (Sony failed twice, Lionsgate/Artistan failed twice)
