See the Story Behind the Tim Burton 'Superman' Film that Never Was

This is not a fan costume. This is really what they were planning to have Superman wear.

The Man of Steel looks to be a film that succeeds both in updating its subject matter for a new audience and staying true to its comic book origins.  That wasn't always the case, though.  In the mid nineties a project known as Superman Lives was to be directed by Tim Burton, and would feature a Superman with an electric rainbow suit who had to fly around in a plane.  It never happened, but one documentary filmmaker wants to find out the real story behind the project.

The documentary, which is to be called The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, is currently in its kickstarter phase.  Here's the promo video:

Here's the kickstarter page itself.  That's a project I can't wait to see.  On the chance that you don't know the depths of insanity that the Tim Burton project reached before getting canned, check out Kevin Smith's words on his experiences (Warning: video contains mature content)

Now, don't you want to learn more about that?

I think kevin smiths exaggerated summary is more interesting than anything that guy can whip up. he might as well just refer people to internet links.

I actually own this dvd. An Evening with Kevin Smith. It's a REALLY cool dvd and Kevin Smith is HILARIOUS. You want to see more by the time it goes off. Fortunately he made a few more after that one.
