Any one who is a comic book fan may have heard of Tim Burton‘s (Ed Wood, Alice in Wonderland) failed Superman Lives project from the ’90’s. A couple of photos as Nicholas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas, Drive Angry) in costume have appeared from the failed production. Have a look at them here:
Please note that these photos have not been authenticated and Photoshop users are getting better everyday. It is a fact, though, that Nicholas Cage was set to star in the film as Clark Kent/Superman.
If you are interested in learning more about this film, there is a Kickstarter campaign to make a documentary about the film. Have a look at this video from the Kickstarter campaign:
This looks to be a project that I can get behind. I remember when this film was announced and would love to know more about why it fell apart. At the time I was all about Tim Burton and was extremely excited to see his version of the character. And judging from the above video, it would have been a strange trip . . .
