I think it's much more likely that Disney/Marvel teams up with Sony than FOX. Because of poor deals signed by Ari Avad (and no, I haven't seen the contracts but I have read interviews in which he admits his culpability in the poorly negotiated agreements), Disney/Marvel receives a pittance on their FF and X-Men properties, while they rake in the cash on Spidey due to having 100% ownership of his merchandising rights.

I can see Disney/Marvel continuing to put pressure on FOX by refusing to provide merchandising support for the franchises FOX holds, launching competing properties like GOTG and Inhumans, and hoping that the X-Men franchise, which peaked at the box office back in 2006, continues to falter.
