Yes, they still have to get through the regulatory stuff.

    Also let's remember the "grand success"/sarcasm of the Fantastic Four movies. Just because Marvel can put the FF back into their studio still doesn't automatically mean a quality FF movie will becoming.

Still, there's no one more trustworthy than current Marvel Entertainment.

    Plus the X-men movies will now probably be rebooted...AGAIN, so soon after Days of Future past reset/revised the timeline to eliminate Xmen 3. Hugh Jackman is apparently finished with being Wolverine, good luck on the casting for his replacement.

Good. Good. Good. The current state of the X-Movies is horrible. Jackman really got into the role in an awesome way, but I don't think he really made a great Wolverine. And I hope the next one is 5'5" (or UNDER).

    Patrick Stewart back as Prof. X? Not likely.

That's okay. He can be replaced.

    A quality X-men movie about the Phoenix/Dark Phoenix Saga? Not likely unless they get smart and make it a TRILOGY

I don't necessarily want to see comic stories on screen. The MCU movies generally have not been, or they've been extremely twisted versions. I don't really think Phoenix needs a trilogy, either. A lot of that UXM #101-137 was basically filler. The temptation of Jean could easily, believably be done in 30-45 minutes.

    Also it is way too late to pencil in the FF and X-men into Avengers 3 and 4 so the "Dream team" movie of RDJ/Evans/hemsworth as IM/Cap/THOR teaming with FF and/or X-men isn't happening since their contracts tap out with Avengers 4 and at least 2 of the 3 want to move on.

To be honest, I think we're nearing the end of Marvel movies in this cycle. Second Stringers are going to ruin things, and a reboot needs to come.

    Who could replace RDJ as Tony Stark? Or Evans as Capt America? Hemsworth's brother perhaps as the new THOR since they look similar and he may come cheaper then his brother in terms of money.

Honestly, I don't think replacing any of them would be that hard.

    So unless they shell out a BOATLOAD of cash to all 3 of them, the "dream team" movie isn't going to we'd need a serious world wide threat like Galactus and his heralds.

Meh. Galactus ain't all that. He usually gets defeated by the FF alone.

    So yeah.....I'm not celebrating this. This feels like too little too late as far as recovering the FF and X-men characters.

Never too late. Overall, I think Marvel controlling their own properties benefits everyone.

And this will certainly make things better for printed stories.
