Trailer For Documentary THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED?

July 25, 20140 Comments

Here’s the first full-length trailer for Jon Schnepp’s documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? that debuted at the San Diego Comic-Con. The documentary, funded by Kickstarter, will try to explain why Tim Burton’s Superman never made it past pre-production.

Burton’s version would have starred Nicolas Cage as Superman. Kevin Spacey was approached for Lex Luthor, Chris Rock for Jimmy Olsen, Courtney Cox for Lois Lane, and Tim Allen claims he was negotiating with Warner Bros. for the part of Brainiac. The script went through a couple different writers including Kevin Smith and Wesley Strick. The film quickly went into pre-production with an expected release in the summer of 1998.

What if this actually happened?
