Arrow seems to be doing pretty bad with fans as well. Should just canel that
We only have one X-Men film greenlit. And its an extremely safe one for Fox. They are not out of their comfort zone. Everything thus far has been around Wolverine, Prof X and that core team. Until we have films revolving around other characters greenlit, X-Men are in the same position as DC with their lesser knowns. We dont have that Deadpool and X-Force film just yet. Just like DC dont have their Wonder Woman, Justice League Dark and Flash films. They will happen sooner or later, but for now nothing has a date and given the go ahead on production except their safe bets ( Batman, Superman, Wolverine), films they could lose the right to (FF) and Avenger sized epics (Bats VS Supes, DOFP, XM:A).
I agree with most of what you're saying, except for DOFP/Apocalypse being "a safe bet." Do I think it will pay off handsomely? Absolutely. But they are risking A LOT of mullah on this endeavor. I would say something like a sequel to The Wolverine is more of a safe bet.
