I know that's hard for some of us to believe, but not everyone is gonna commit like Jackman has, and that's their right. These actors want to be challenged in new and exciting ways. It's just like Anthony Hopkins being reluctant about playing Lecter for a third time. He wasn't sure there was much else he could bring that hadn't already been presented. We tend to take for granted that these are actual people who may want to do different things.
I agree with you, especially with an actor of Fassbender's caliber. He could go do an artistically fulfilling role in a Steve Mcqueen film, or be horrible under utilized in an X-Men film. I really dug DOFP, but he wasn't used to the fullest of his potential.
