I don't think it was as straightforward as that. Singer would no doubt also have developed Colossus in his own X3. But we don't know if/how Singer would have handled Nightcrawler in his X3; I've never heard mention of further plans for the character and he never became a full team member or seemed fully integrated with the others.
I'd like to have seen more Nightcrawler and a better Colossus though!
