Good. And his opinion is different. U mad because he doesn't agree with you?

But right or wrong, he's not blaming the audience.
I'm not TELLING you anything. I (as you can tell by my repeated use of IMO) am just giving my opinion.

The way that the interview reads, to me, does not sound like he is owning up to the flaws of the movie.

It sounds like a man who is reluctant to admit there is anything wrong with his movie, and that it failed due to reasons outside of the movie itself.

Other than admitting that he made the movie HE wanted, he doesn't admit any of it's flaws.

I personally found the tone of the interview a bit arrogant.

I've seen an interview with J.J Abrams where he gets asked about his Superman script and makes a joke at his own expense. He understands that he really missed the mark with that. I just wish that Singer would have that sense of humility and be able to look back and go 'yeah, maybe the super kid was a bad move'.

Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.

'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
