Nicolas Cage's Scrapped Superman Movie Should Have Totally Happened


This trailer dropped for an unfinished documentary project about Superman Lives, a Nic Cage Superman movie in the 90's that never saw the light of day.

The movie was penned by Kevin Smith, to star Nicolas Cage and to be directed by Tim Burton. How did this not seem like best idea ever?!

Look, as Hollywood has shown over and over again, making a good Superman movie is apparently really hard. But sometimes bad things are great, and from the look of the trailer above, Superman Lives might have been the best bad Superman movie ever.

Check out the video to hear Kevin Smith and Tim Burton talk about what went wrong with the production.

The documentary, titled The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? is incomplete, and still seeking funding.
