Most of the general audience could take them or leave them - as long as the movies are good it doesn't matter whose in them.
That "beloved" didn't come from me, that came from the official Facebook page of the X-Men movies.
And you're wrong, having well-known characters will attract more casual viewers. FC having a lot of B-List and D-list X-Men characters was actually an issue to the GA.
