Due to the sheer volume of the characters involved with the contract, Fox wouldn't turn over the rights to Disney without first receiving a check running into 10 figures. With the rights they hold Fox could turnover the X-Men roster yet again, put out the New Mutants movie proposed by their former studio head, release a Deadpool movie, or put out a cheap X Men Origins: Dazzler just to hold onto the film rights. Though less profitable on a per movie basis than Spider-man, the endless film possibilities involving the X Men represents a steady long-term income stream for Fox that they won't turn over to Disney/Marvel unless they pay dearly for it.
