If all of Star Wars ( plus a bunch of other minor things like ILM! ) are worth 4B, than I guarantee you, the actual value two far smaller movie IPs, which only include associated merchadising specific to the movies? Aren't worth 4B.

If Disney WERE to buy back X-Men and Fantastic Four from Fox, I imagine it would be for something like 400 to 500 million. Definitely nowhere even near a billion.
