Re: X-Men: Apocalypse coming in 2016!
I really think one of the several reasons that First Class underperformed was people being underwhelmed by The Last Stand and XO: Wolverine. I think a lot of mainstream fans were just kind of "over" X-Men at that point. Even as a big X-Men fan, I wasn't excited for FC and went in with low expectations. I basically saw it out of obligation.
And I loved it.
I think that word of mouth from FC, as well as the nostalgia factor of having the original cast back and the increased star power of Fassbender and especially Lawrence, will do big things for DOFP. How all of these factors will lead into X-Men: Apocalypse is still in the air.
This is my signature.
