By the time of the sequel's release, Marvel was well into production on their first two features under the Merrill Lynch financing arrangement. I wouldn't be surprised if restricting FOX's merchandising revenue on ROTSS was an attempt by Marvel to lessen the probability of a third film in the series, and hasten the rights reversion date.

Either that or they still had tons of unsold stuff from the first film.
