Some think that “Superman Returns” did work, but for those who didn’t particularly like the Bryan Singer version of the story about the Man of Steel, he’s here to tell you why you didn’t.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision posted snippets of an interview Comic Book Movie’s VoicesofKrypton did with Bryan Singer about the issues of the film.

When asked about how he internalized the overall response people had to the film, Singer said, “It’s hard for me to assess it. My gut response is, ‘I didn’t do THAT bad.'”

But he goes on to explain some possible causes for the monetary failure. “I think that ‘Superman Returns’ was a bit nostalgic and romantic, and I don’t think that was what people were expecting, especially in the summer,” he said. “What I had noticed is that there weren’t a lot of women lining up to see a comic book movie, but they were going to line up to see ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, which may have been something I wanted to address. But when you’re making a movie, you’re not thinking of that stuff, you’re thinking, ‘Wow, I want to make a romantic movie that harkens back to the Richard Donner movie that I loved so much.’ And that’s what I did.”
