Even if Marvel got the X-Men back, they wouldn't have time to do anything with them. They would put them on the shelf like Punisher, Blade, Ghost Rider, Daredevil, etc.
Disney and Fox are BILLION dollar companies. That are vicious
. They don't care abot Good Business Practice, if Disney or Fox had the power to make another studio fail they will damn well use that power.
It doesn't matter that Disney wouldn't make anymore X films with the rights. As long as they have the rights other studios don't, and can't make money off them. Fox, Paramount and Warner would have gladly steal each others franchises and not make films out of them. Other studios' failures just makes them look better. If one studio loses a major franchise, all the other studios are cooking up plans to try and replace it. There's money to be had.
