You're obviously missing the bigger picture to how valuable the Fantastic Four rights are. Its not just about the four heroes. Silver Surfer, Galactus, Annihilus, the Super Skrull, and whatever other cosmic beings they currently own are perfect for the direction Disney/Marvel are going with their franchise.
Not to mention, Dr Doom is one of the greatest villains in the Marvel Universe, much more than a villain for the Fantastic Four alone.
