But thats the beauty of it. Fox wont lose the rights due to possible production delays and keep a stake in the franchise but doesn't risk the BO losses impending by not being able to utilize the tail-wind that is behind the Marvel Franchise to offset the FF franchise past failures. Marvel get to utilize characters previously not available characters and can gain more of a profit off of the FF then the measley 10%..
Plus Fox may be able to release it in 2016 which would be better overall then trying to fit when A2, JL,Star Wars in the summer and Ant-Man,Avatar 2 and Hungergames the rest of that year
