I don't see a traditional First Class
sequel happening beyond this. I just don't see a First Class
direct sequel having the same draw -- the anticipation's just not there. FOX knows this -- thus DOFP
I absolutely agree with you!
If FOX thinks they are gonna make more money featuring the cast that started this series, the cast that is portraying more well-known characters, they would be making more films with them. And if DOFP ends up as the top grossing X-Men film, it would encourage them more.
