FAIL: The Plot of Superman Lives July 21, 2015

Posted by Maniac in FAIL, Site Videos.

Here’s a new episode of FAIL for you guys today, a brand new series where Maniac talks about Hollywood’s ongoing failures.

Today, we’re going to be talking about the plot to Superman Lives, a bonafied Superman film planned for production in the mid-90s. It was written by Kevin  Smith (writer/director of Clerks), produced by Jon Peters (producer of Batman and Caddyshack), star Nicolas Cage (Ghost Rider) and get directed by Tim Burton (Beetlejuice).

Sadly, production issues and creative differences forced the project’s cancellation before production began, and the script Kevin Smith wrote was never shot.  A documentary has just recently been produced which details the film’s failed development, but a small criticism about it was that the documentary never talked about the film’s plot.

So what was the plot of this movie, and why was it never produced while other films like Man of Steel and Superman Returns were?  Give the video below a watch and find out. Then you can decide for yourself if it was a shame or a good thing that the movie was never made.
