Is Marvel Trying To Destroy "Fantastic Four" ?

While Sony Pictures and Disney-owned Marvel are reportedly working out a licensing agreement that will see 'Spider-Man' welcomed into Marvel Studios' 'Marvel Cinematic Universe' (similar to Marvel and Paramount making a deal regarding 'Captain America' on the big screen), litigation now looms 'Hydra'-like as Marvel appears to be deliberately trying to squash 20th Century Fox attempts to move forward with more "Fantastic Four" and "X-Men" movies:

"...Fox legally owns licensed screen rights to Marvel's 'X-Men' and 'Fantastic Four', and Marvel has retaliated by undermining those properties. 

"According to Marvel Comics writer Chris Claremont, the company has forbidden the creation of new 'X-Men' characters because those characters could then be used by Fox.

" Marvel Comics' "Fantastic Four" will also be canceled April 2015 with issue #645, 'Fantastic Fourever',  so there won’t be any support on shelves when 'The Fantastic Four' reboot movie opens August 7, 2015.

"'X-Men' as a comic book sells well enough to continue, but there will be no toys or any of the usual ancillary revenues, as was apparent during the release of Fox' 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past"..."
