Like I said, FOX should ride the success of DOFP and follow the footsteps of Fast/Furious. Let the original cast star in a couple of movies first, before releasing spin-offs/prequel that obviously attract less to the general audience.


Agreed.

In terms of the actual comics, The X-Men inhabit their own universe. Sure, while mutants have contributed greatly to the comic universes (616 and Ultimate,) the sheer number of characters and storylines is rival to the non mutant titles. Fox is sitting on a goldmine they have barely begun to tap; hence, the Fast & Furious argument is music, because that is the best way to tap into said vein.
