I disagree? My best friend can't stand comic books. He loves movies. He hates the X-Franchise. He loves Nolan's Batmans and The Avengers. More than just fans have problems with the X-Franchise. It's riddled with just about everything that makes a bad franchise. Plot holes, recasts, continuity errors, unwarranted and unearned deaths, and Baraka-pool. Rather than viewing it as a reboot (as the OP titled the thread) I think he's describing more of a renaissance. In terms of (likely) never seeing some of the major cast again (Stewart, Mckellen and Jackman) and allowing a younger cast to pickup where the current one never really traveled. It's not a hard or even soft reboot. It's a resurgence.
