I assumed Marvel's deal with Fox was comparable to their deal with Sony, in which profits from sales of movie related merchandise would be shared between the two companies. Marvel was giving away the store back in the day, and the lack of information may be due that, unlike with Sony, there hasn't been any legal disputes on this matter. But I could be wrong.
