Episode 140: Superman Lives Part 1


Back in the late 90s Warner Brother decided to bring Superman back to the big screen. The plan was to adapt the story of Superman’s death and rebirth from the comics. Eventually Tim Burton would be hired to direct and Nicolas Cage would be cast in the leading role. The first draft of the script was assigned to filmmaker, Kevin Smith. At the time he was only known for Clerks and Mallrats. The film was never made.

The script, titled “Superman Lives” has grown a cult liking online. We downloaded a copy of it and gathered together to do a table read for you. It was a lot of fun. We were able to bring you the story while commenting on it and making fun of parts of it at the same time.
