Also, The Usual Suspects is a great movie. Guy's a damn solid director. Haven't seen the newer stuff he's done though....:/
Superman Returns has Singer's sense of style and craft, but it's a rather odd Superman film and not the Superman film that needed to be made. Valkyrie didn't quite hit the mark either.

He has a good sense for the X-Men, for sure. Not perfect (some characters fell by the wayside) but he managed to make most stuff believable and grounded in a very Nolan-eseque fashion. The story he came up with for First Class was incredibly smart. Hopefully we will get something equally smart for Days of Future Past.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
