Trailer for the Documentary on Tim Burton's SUPERMAN LIVES

Here's the trailer for an interesting-looking documentary called The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? It focuses on the 1998 Superman Lives film that was being directed by Tim Burton, written by Kevin Smith, and was to star Nicolas Cage. Over the years, we've seen a bunch of behind the scenes photos and video test footage from this awful-looking movie that featured some of the costumes and Cage as the Man of Steel.

The documentary was Kickstarted and directed by filmmaker Jon Schnepp, who is behind series such as Metalocalypse and Venture Bros. Here's a description of the Doc.

The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened? is a Feature Length Documentary about the unmade movie "Superman Lives". This film, out of all the various attempts to make a Superman movie between 1987 and 2006, would have stood the test of time and become a bonafide Cult Classic nowadays. I am not alone with my intense interest in knowing everything I can about this project, and so now I'm embarking on making a Documentary that will cover everything ever made for this film, from interviewing as many people as I can who were involved, to including actually recreating scenes from the script!!!

This should prove to be a fun and interesting documentary, and it's set to be released sometime in the summer of 2014. I can't help but think that Superman Lives would have been the worst Superman movie ever made.
