Oh absolutely. I love Superman Returns, but when you look back at it, maybe going with a flat out reboot would have been the better way to go as opposed to making a pseudo-sequel to a 30 year old movie. First Class on the other hand really benefits from flat out disregarding the last two X-Men movies and tying it into Singer's X-Men movies.

Honestly, instead of X-Men 4, 20th Century Fox should just develop a new X-Men 3 set ten years after X2. They really have a shot at making the X-Men a great franchise again as opposed to us dreading a mediocre installment after another mediocre installment all while we have the longshot wish of Disney just swooping in and stealing the rights from Fox.
