After all, he did pretty well with X1/X2 despite with all the limitations that those films had. And how much budget was he asking for X3?
Remember that with all the success Singer had brought to the franchise, Fox were still stalling with X3. It didn't get moving until Singer jumped ship and it seems that was just to spite him.
Can't blame him for making the choices he did. Superman was a passion project for Singer, and Warner were far more accommodating.
