I can understand why they're keeping X-Men rights, because that encompasses a ton of characters. And that's a lot of toys and more franchise material. It's a shame that they only need to make a film every couple years to keep the rights. Luckily for me, I don't like X-Men at all so it doesn't bother me. And I think X-Men wouldn't really add much to the Marvel Movieverse. However, I would love to see Wolverine fight The Hulk. I think everybody would like that.

Quoted for the absolute complete and utter truth. Probably my biggest gripe with Marvel/Spider-Man in general is when he's thrown into grander scale stories then his character can allow for. Spider-man is strongest as a spunky kid cleanin' up New York and just sticks out like an utter sore-thumb when he's fighting alongside The Avengers in outer space on some planet. Which is why I enjoy Spider-man moreso as a film character then I do a comic book character.
