I just wonder if that would be enough in the eyes of the industry/studio considering the expectations and higher budget. The expectations for this aren't the same as for FC and The Wolverine; they're throwing everything and the kitchen sink in this time.
A $500 million world wide box-office gross wouldn't please the diehard fans of the X-Men films, but it may be seen by the studio as a step in the right direction for a franchise that has been experiencing declining box office grosses for quite some time.

If FOX can keep up the quality of their last two mutant films with DOFP, the studio could keep humming along with steady though unspectacular returns with X-Force, New Mutants or perhaps Excalibur (which I think is the "mash up" Singer was teasing at the Fantasia Festival).
