Sure but thats because they have an advantage that FOX doesn't have. They have so many properties that could stand on their own. An Ant-Man movie, a Dr. Strange movie, a Ms. Marvel movie will not be seen as another Iron Man film, another Thor film or another Avengers movie or another Avengers spin-off (unless those characters appeared in an Avengers film first). With films for X-Force, New Mutants, Gambit, people would easily see those as another spin-off to the X-Men series.

The only chance for FOX to have a same model with Marvel/DC is they have more properties that wouldn't be seen as another branch of Fantastic Four/X-Men.

And I always suggest for future X-Men films featuring the OT cast that they should introduce new villains like Mr. Sinister and Apocalypse and new members to the X-Men like Psylocke and Forge. You made it sound like as if its only possible in a spin-off movie. That the villains for X-Men films (feat. the OT cast) will be always be Magneto/the U.S. government officials.
