Speakers Corner: The LF Forum > Kevin Smith on Superman (with Nick Cage/Tim Burton)

Stumbled across this clip from the Kevin Smith Talk series. Very interesting behind the scenes explanation of, not only what happened with his work on the superman movie, but what happens in Hollywood in general...

Would love to see his draft!

here (I think) it is:

this has been on the web for years - no idea how official it is but it really does seem to tick the boxes in terms of what he talks about in the clip you posted (good watch by the way). I think it looks like it could have been a really good film even though I don't see Nick Cage as Superman at all.

Isn't it.

The Michael Keaton cameo would've been cool too. A Tim Burton Superman movie is such an intriguing concept because I really can't visualise it at all. Would love to have seen it though, particularly with this script. I always thought 'the death of Superman' would make a good trilogy or 2-movie feature.
