As angry and frustrated I am by this turn of events, it does enlighten us to the fact that these contracts can apparently be renewed by simply paying for the option.
Previously, I believe it was assumed by everyone that the rights would automatically revert if a film wasn't produced in set amount of years. But unfortunately, it's now apparent that these companies can simply throw some cash at Marvel and retain the rights indefinitely...
