I was flipping through cable TV...

And came across a documentary about a movie that was never made called The Death of "Superman Lives": What Happened?

The year was 1997-Produced by Jon Peters, Barbra Streisand's hairdresser.The movie had a couple of different scripts (one written by Kevin Smith) based on the 1993 death of Superman, Tim Burton as director and Nicolas Cage as Superman. They already had costume fittings, concept art and an idea for a robotic companion named "K".

It is an interesting thing to watch as those involved told their tale of who they wanted Superman to be(some ideas ended up in Superman Returns and Wild Wild West, both I saw). Most of the movie sounded crazy but fun and it would have been something different. I'm not sure if it would have been a good or bad movie but from the doc. I learned a thing or two about what it takes (to be/being) a filmmaker.
