Also if Marvel doesnt put out Xtoys, then the merchandise companies can focus more on Disney toys for Disney's other movies.
This all points to disney trying to hurt X-Men films.
Why would any real X-Men fan support this?
And considering star wars will likely be ppushed to christmas by Disney what makes anyone think X-Men would be high priority by them If they got the rights back.And it's not like if they put out merchandize marvel wouldn't make any money.
