Exactly. The X-Movies are my favorite superhero franchise but it has NEVER had the same broad audience appeal like the Bat-films or Marvel's current crop of movies.
Could DOFP change that? Maybe. Will it? I probably won't hold my breath if the leaked trailer is any indication. The subject matter is just a little too layered than your typical superhero movie.
It could even bite the movie in it's own butt if it tries to tone itself down in order to fit a certain marketing campaign.
