Default Re: The "Keep Hope Alive" (that the rights can revert back to Marvel) thread

It is not a issue of can they. It's a question of should they and if the "fixes" they made from a business stand point contributed on their bottom line. They have every right to do whatever they want but movies are supposed to be a profit making business. I somewhat agree with Willie Lumkin that Tom Rothman fell short of fixing their Marvel universe into the profit making business that Marvel has done it self so that problem is gone so there's nowhere to go but up. This is all about what's best for the FF. the X-Universe is fine with Fox. So to me this Fox shared universe is counter productive and this march 2015 release date has to be forced not because the want to put it out more than they have to to keep the rights. So they still have to compete with SW VII, JL and the Avengers and march releases don't make that much money. So Fox can do whatever they want. But if they want to make a profit then they'll chose for the FF to ride the sails of the MCU as opposed to the X-Men.
