    There are still MANY people who want the rights to any Spider-Man, X-Men, or non-Marvel-owned property to be returned to them. What some people don't understand is that Marvel can only afford to release two films a year, meaning that we probably wouldn't get a Marvel-produced Spider-Man or X-Men film for years, maybe even decades. Marvel seems to be more interested in getting the general audience interested in their lesser known characters rather than pumping out another film based on an already established one. And even so, if SPE really is going bankrupt, they'd probably try to sell the rights to another company before they returned to Marvel (ex. Universal, Fox, Liongate) much like what Carloco did when they sold the Spider-Man movie rights to MGM and the MGM vs. Sony legal battle occured.

    That has changed somewhat now that Disney owns them. They are planning more movies for the future, next year or 2014 you could see 3 to 4 marvel movies a year as they introduce new characters. Based on their original loan though, you are correct, they could only afford two a year. Now that Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and The Avengers are proven money making properties, they don't have to justify the sequels. Disney is also planning a ton of TV and other projects.
    Disney has several studios
    Disney
    Touchstone
    Pixar
    Buena Vista
    Marvel Studios
    Silver Creek Pictures, Inc.
    So they can release various movies any time they feel like.

    Live TV Plans in production
    Punisher
    Hulk
    Cloak and Dagger
    AKA Jessica Jones
    Mockingbird

    Movies
    Dr.Strange
    Ant Man
    Iron Man 3
    Thor 2
    Cap 2
    Avengers 2
    Shield
    War Machine Spin off
    Possibly Black Widow, but she may just be lumped in with shield.

    Previously Scripted but still in negotiations
    Iron Fist
    Black Panther
    Power Pack
    And these are the know ones.
    We will find out more in July when the big conventions start.
