Sure different websites report on the news but that's their job. They report casting announcements etc. every single day.
Still the buzz for this film is way bigger than the buzz for The Wolverine, First Class and upcoming films such as Captain America 2, Thor 2, Guardians of the Galaxy and even Amazing Spider-Man two. If you think DOFP won't live up to its hype, what about those other superhero films who are barely trending or what about a X-Men film just featuring the First Class cast (the cast that you prefer).
