That's not true AT ALL in my neck of the woods. None of my friends (nor my parents for that matter) are X-junkies like me, and they are way more excited for DOFP than the last three films because of the original cast coming back. They all seem to agree that FOX shouldn't do anymore prequels.
I certainly don't speak for everyone, but there certainly are general filmgoers clamoring for the return of the OT cast.
