Ah, yes, this old plaint again, which completely ignores the budget and special effects realities behind X1,
Fair point, but he didn't have to continue the trend in 2 and most of 3.

the fact that the very much "spandex-embracing" Batman and Robin was still a fresh memory in people minds,
Apples and oranges. "Ebrace the spandex" does not mean camp and stupid. Schumacher set out to make a Dark Knight/Adam West hybrid movie and it (predictably) blew up on him.

and the fact that the most "out-there" X-movies, X3 and Origins, are also by far the worst.
The most "out there" movie is FC, and it's by far the BEST X-film. It's also the one Singer had the least to do with.
