That means that a TON of characters who are currently franchised would go to the backburner and probably never see the light of day again. Cap would have to hang up his shield so that Spidey could join the MCU, the X-Men would push Hulk into oblivion, Thor's run would end to make room for the FF; and other characters who have yet to debut in the MCU would be dropped entirely --- Dr. Strange, Deadpool, Ms. Marvel, Black Panther, Luke Cage, etc. etc. etc.

Is that what you'd prefer? To see Marvel Studios keep churning out just same-ole/same-ole Iron Man, Avengers, Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four and Wolverine films, at the expense of all these other franchises that are trying to get off the ground?
OBJECTION! This is clearly speculation...LOL

Even with the rights being scattered all over the place, there's only been an average of 3 Marvel films a year.

Lets ask FOX if Hell's Kitchen (Daredevil) and placing things on back burners (not meeting the deadline with 7 years time) have anything in common since this strategy was just as ridiculous when Millar tried preaching it.

FOX barely does one Marvel film a year with more than half of the films they've spoke of in development hell or reverted back to Marvel. Sony made 2 films last year but one (Ghost Rider) was so horrible that no one really remembers it or bothered to see it. And Amazing Spider-man has the lowest US box office numbers of any Spider-man film under Sony to date.

Whereas Marvel Studios clearly breaks down what they're going to do and despite some issues they actually see them all through with great payoff!

Now just because Feige confirm on giving us 2 films a year.... an amount that's still 2 thirds of the Marvel films we get per year anyway, mind you. Doesn't mean that the number is etched in stone.

If Marvel's success continues and there were to get the rights back from say... FOX. Then I see no reason why they wouldn't be able to up the ante to 3 a year, which again is the current average.

It insults readers intelligence to sit here and use FOX (where's Magneto, Surfer and Dead pool?) and Sony's (Where's Venom?) bad business practices on Marvel films to speculate on what Marvel Studios might do if they had those rights. Especially when when none of there actions have been nearly as bad.
