WATCH: The Death of Superman Lives gets a proper trailer

July 25th, 2014 by Ciaran McNulty Comments

So, it’s really happened. Jon Schnepp’s Kickstarter-funded documentary about the Superman flick that could’ve been, is set to be released and comes complete with an eye-fattening new trailer.

The previous trailer was a teaser to get the funds to put the thing together and therefore had the feel of a fan-made youtube tribute with patched together snippets of interviews from different sources. And that’s why this trailer satisfies our appetites in such a gut-busting manner.

Schnepp has completely fulfilled on his promise, with stills and clips that we never thought we’d see and interviews galore – including screenwriter Kevin Smith and, in a very pleasant surprise, director Tim Burton.

Superman Lives seems like it would not have been a good movie but, as with Lost In La Mancha, it seems we may get a good viewing experience out of it, simply because it wasn’t made. Here’s to the ‘Jodorowsky’s Dune’ of the superhero world.

‘The Death of Superman Lives’ has a release date of August 1st on IMDb.

Ciaran is a stand-up comedian, improviser and occasional actor. Growing up in a household where he enjoyed westerns and kung-fu flicks alike, due to the influences of various family members, he quickly came to fall in love with science fiction before (not so quickly) developing a taste for horror too. Since then, he’s eagerly enjoyed almost anything with a spaceship or gothic castle in it (even when it’s sometimes embarrassing to admit as much). Later, he found he rather liked talking about these weird obsessions… public.
