TW did fine. The quality since X2 went down until FC which looked like a new start with a whole new cast. You can't expect these films to carry the weight as their peak until they settle in. TW is playing make up and FC is just getting started. Much like the OT you cant expect these films to have X3 numbers right away, other things come into play.
I wouldn't call the Daredevil film a true success especially if you compare it to the WW grosses of X1/FF1, it didn't even earn more than $200 million worldwide.
And you have to consider if Fox is willing to release more than 1 Marvel film per year, they could compromise the quality of the films and the more films they release per year, probably, there will be less effort to the marketing.
