exactly. Fox was actually more comfortable letting DD go than let MS use parts of the FF property. IIRC the deal would have been that FOX not only would have kept the rights to DD, for wich they already had a director and a few drafts of a scripts but MS would have paid money to regain Galactus and SS, two characters that FOX at that time had no intention to use since the FF reboot at that time was in very early stages.
FOX was not interested in that deal. I doubt they change their minds soon unless The Wolverine, DOFP and FF all fail miserably and Marvel properties are no longer considered profitable.
