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?
He was probably just tired of waiting all the time to get his vision done, it also seemed way too awesome for Rothman to agree, since Singer wanted x-3 and 4 shot back-to-back, the 3rd film being the X-Men, Magneto's Brotherhood and the final battle probably being left for the 4th film.
I don't hold up hopes that we'll still see this happen, with all the things put in Days of Future Past i'm not even sure if that one will be good, but i'll still hold hopes that DoFP and Apocalypse will be good and a rebirth of the franchise into the box-office. Hopefully we'll eventually see Singer take on this storyline, even if it's in an entirelly different way.
