I hate it when studios do that and then change their minds later on, but I think WB still had hopes in that Bryan Singer would deliver a more action driven sequel in fact I think he even mentioned that the sequel would be bigger.
A few of the Marvel Superheroes are somewhat niche characters that aren't extremely versatile, thus they don't have a lot of longevity potential. For example, Namor is a water guy, Silver Surfer is a space guy, Dr. Strange is a magic guy, and so on.
