The concern of brand over-exposure diminishes the richness of the comic franchise; saying that Magneto, Stryker, and the Sentinels are the only villains ignores a ton of great storylines and characters they can cull from.
Exactly! Like the Spider-Man and Batman films, X-Men could face a new big villain in every new film. They just need to make that new villain strong and more threatening compare to the last one.

However, it is premature to reboot: some have cited the age of the franchise (14 years) but, in context of the series, before DOFP, there were four films. While it under-performed, First Class did re-ignite the franchise after X3. DOFP is going to continue rejuvenating the series, which will hopefully occur with the next film.
DOFP would definitely reignite this series. Like I said this series is in much better shape compare to 2009 to 2011. With just the hype alone, DOFP looks like its gonna be a big blockbuster. What will happen when the trailer is released, when the promotion starts and the movie turned to be great.

FOX should be smart to take advantage of this and milk the success of DOFP by releasing another movie with the original cast.

Phoenix • Psylocke • Rogue • Storm
X - W O M E N
Dazzler • Jubilee • Polaris • Shadowcat • White Queen
