It is the stuff of legend. The failed Tim Burton-directed, Kevin Smith-written, Nicolas Cage-starring Superman movie that almost materialized back in the late ’90s. Famously described in detail on one of Smith’s “Evening With” DVDs, Superman Lives would have taken the internet by storm and achieved a cult status simply due to the outlandishness of it all.
An obsession with the film has slowly grown over the years, especially after photos of Cage in the suit leaked onto the internet, and filmmaker Jon Schnepp took it upon himself to make a documentary about the film. Funded entirely through a Kickstarter campaign, The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? is set to be released sometime in summer 2014. Check out the trailer below!
