I'll address this quote with another quote..
Why do we not understand that the the FF franchise that Fox and Tim Story put forth is only worthy to be flushed down a toilet? And rebuilding from that is so difficult. At least X-Men had successful films that XM-FC didn't suffer as much. FF has 0 successful films
and another quote..
So what franchise is Fox building with the FF? The more interesting villains belong to the X-Men in comparison. In fact IMO TA:EMH Television show made better use of FF's rogue gallery then Fox ever could.
so until this happens
there will be some losses on all sides. But some will have larger losses than others. though I admit that last part of my comment is so fanboy extreme (lol) but the fact remains the future of the FF would serve Fox better if they did a Robopocalypse type deal with Marvel Studios then go at it alone whether the Foxes want to see it or not
What kind of deal was made with who, and what did it involve?
