* RunningTheAsylum: Singer is, by some accounts, a huge ''Superman'' fan (or at least a huge fan of the first two Christopher Reeve Superman films), which is why he left the ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'' to make a ''Superman'' movie. Some of those accounts suggest that this is why the first two ''X-Men'' movies were awesome and Superman was not; he was only marginally familiar with the ''X-Men'' comics, so he was able to make two ''X-Men'' films that even non-fans could enjoy, but he was too close to Superman to do it right.

* ''Superman Returns'' has become somewhat VindicatedByHistory if only because what came after pales critically in comparison: upon premiering in theaters it was considered mediocre by Superman fans. After the reboot films ''Film/ManOfSteel'' and ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', ''Returns'' has grown in stature and often considered as better and more faithful to the comic book source than any Superman related film that has premiered afterwards as of 2018.
