Fox has gotten very comfortable with putting out average-to-below average films that return $300 - $400 million worldwide on relatively modest budgets for the genre. They will continue to settle for lower profits than they should be earning because they don't understand how to create better films in order to maximize their profits. Fox probably won't ever have a breakout hit from its Marvel hostages franchises, but they will keep making enough money to justify trying again (and again).

"It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters." ~ Kevin Feige
