So a long time ago they was an effort to make a superman movie called Superman Lives, starring Nicolas Cage. Now I hate Nicolas Cage when he tries to be serious but this movie looked to be weird/interesting enough to watch. Now someone is doing a kickstarter campaign to make a documentary on what happened to this movie. The goal is to interview everyone involved with the project. If he exceeds the goal he is going to shoot scenes from the script of the movie. Here is the Youtube Link

    That does indeed look like the strangest superhero movie ever! Would have really shaken up the image of Superman as Captain Dull as well. Not to mention THE CAGE.
    Totally chipping in for this.

    I remember this movie being in pre-production at the time. General feeling from the fanbase is that it was a travesty, that Cage would be awful, why reinvent Superman, nobody wanted to see it etc. It's interesting that in the intervening years with the movie having not happened, people are now fascinated and intrigued by what could have been.
    If only Batman & Robin only existed as a retrospective what-if documentary.

    Lol well they already made a superman no one wanted to see. Nick cage woulda been Chris Reeves meets Dean Cain. The concept for the plot involving brainiac and deep space is actually better then always turning to lex luther. The concepts of different outfits isn't a problem.... though the rainbow one and lightning is weird.
