Default Re: Would FOX be open to selling partial rights?

I think the important thing to realize, is that to Fox, the licenses *themselves* have value so long as someone else ( Marvel/Disney ) wants them. The big pay day opportunity isn't "make a big movie, rake in tons of money," its "Marvel/Disney finally breaks down and pays a ton to regain the rights." And that is why Fox wouldn't deal for FF characters; the very fact that Marvel was willing to grant significant extensions in exchange for a few characters showed which rights Marvel valued more.
