No more spin-offs. please.
If they want to expand the universe they have no choice BUT to do solo movies or other team movies.
You keep getting stuck on the fact that if a movis isn't as big as the past movies or on par with Days of Future Past that it's a flop when that's not how things work. Look at Marvel - Thor and Captain America's solo movies didn't perform as well as Iron Man or Iron Man 2 yet they were still successful and they are pushing forward with MORE spin-off and solo movies in the future.
If Fox went wants to start competing with that they are going to HAVE to expand the X-Men universe outside of the main team.

Gambit- A film about the Thieves guild could be cool and give a different feel to the X movies. Hire a writer who knows about heist flicks and they could probably come up with some fun stuff. Maybe have him meet or join the X-Men at the end.
X-Force or Uncanny X-Force- A Cable or Wolverine lead team would be awesome depending were the franchise is post DOFP. I feel the Uncanny X-Force line up would get the most attention due to it's roster and being the best reviewed modern X-Story, but I would like to see Cable's crew as well.
FC follow up- I don't think a Cyclops solo is really required since essentially he's always with the main X-men team and is their leader. He should be leading the team no matter what by the next film. But I would really like to see his origins with Jean and his family explored in a First Class follow up with Sinister as the Villain as well. The 80s FC team can have a strong line up and the decade should be alot of fun.
Love these ideas, especially Gambit. His solo comic run was fantastic! I would also add:
Would really be great to see this one since is more focused on mediating the connections and relationships worldwide between mutants and humans. Would almost be like a mutant-only version of SHIELD.
Another awesome idea, especially if they keep the focus small and sort of noir like that comics are. Would be a really unique idea I think personally.
Would also be cool to see solo movies or at least appearances from the Muir Island team and Genosha.
There are tons of opportunities to expand the universe.
