Yeah I think that with the new shiny franchises on the scene, X-Men might feel like yesterday's news to many people.
Plus I don't think that the general audience is anywhere as nostalgic about the old cast, particularly its minor characters, as the die-hard fans are. Especially when its most popular character has hardly been away from the screen in the meantime and just appeared in his own solo film a year before. And also when the X-Men movies never had the popularity of say Harry Potter or Star Wars or LoTR or some of its fellow CBMs. Not to say that the old cast won't be a draw, but not to the extent of automatically making DoFP a ginormous blockbuster.
