Right now you just seem like the guy going against the grain, starting to hate because ppl didn't like ASM2 and thought Cap2 and GotG were better.
I can say it now, Inhumans and Ant Man could be IM2&3/Thor1/Cap1 quality and Marvel won't skip a beat as they move on to phase 4. The next movies would just come out and be better even if you complained about everyone.
Only decline will occur is if they pick the wrong person to run **** if Feige ever leaves.
Like right now you have no justification in trying to hate on Inhumans other than you not liking them. This was in the cards and hinted at earlier than now. Get used to it.

And I like the Riddick series.
Riddick makes millions in DVD/blu-ray. MILLIONS. Last it was brought up they were #1
Have the next Riddick flick ending with him going through a black hole - Riddick is finally dead. End credits: Riddick wakes up on another wasteland of a planet only this time he's found by Groot. I am Groot. I am Riddick. Rocket vs. Riddick, Riddick vs. Drax (Vin vs. Bautista again).
Billions upon billions.
I know it make millions but that still pales to comparison to what Marvel makes. Hell the 4th installment barely got a greenlight just due to dvd sales success not even from the box office. Not to mention the third film took a lot of convincing on Vin and the fans part to get made and it still didn't reach $100m.
Putting Riddick in a GotG film and it making $500m+ doesn't say much, it'll make as much w/o him.
Again I am a Riddick fan myself and wish it gets a FF treatment but Disney acquiring him for his own film will be on the bottom of their list, simple as that. They have much, much more profitable properties that'll make quadruple/quintuple the money the Riddick films makes.
Putting Riddick in the film is a small nod to the small following the series has and nothing more.
And I know Drax was portrayed a weak punk in the fil;m but dude would still destroy Riddick.
You can't crush my dream. Here's the thing you're not understanding, of course Marvel makes more money than the Riddick franchise. That goes without saying. It's a silly statement given the different pedigrees of each. Thing is if they're selling Marvel/Disney would listen simply based off how strong those sales are for something that didn't do great in the box office. It's fans that basically caused the 3rd installment to be made and get it the bigger budget and once again the DVD/blu-ray sales has prompted Universal to announce the forthcoming 4th installment. The Riddick films won't stop coming any time soon.
If Riddick was making hundreds of millions in the box office, it'd be very less likely that Marvel could buy them or that they'd even think of selling. Doing it in the current situation would just be combining a big name brand with a brand that gained some fame off it's grassroots movement and both would benefit from it. If they bought it might even open the door to clear up w/e problems they have with Universal and the Namor rights/distrubution.
I didn't say anything about putting Riddick in GotG and it making money. The obvious idea here would be to have Riddick benefit from being apart of Marvel. Care to guess how much money a Riddick movie would make backed by Marvel? Hell they'd probably could get away with that Pitch Black budget as long as it had strong ties to the MCU.
So you kinda got it backwards there. It's not about throwing in one character to an already existing franchise, it's having one character be propelled by the other franchises and the brand overall. So give me my end credits scene Marvel. Simple.
And no just from a hype standpoint you have Riddick holding his own against the whole damn team
You send him to Earth and have him lay out Cap too.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
