‘The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?’ to debut at MCM London Comic Con

by Phil Wheat

It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s the European debut of The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? Director Jon Schnepp is to attend May’s MCM London Comic Con to screen his much-anticipated Superman movie documentary, meet fans and sign autographs.

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? delves into one of Hollywood’s most enthralling ‘what might have been’ stories. In 1996, Warner Brothers engaged Kevin Smith to write the screenplay of Superman Lives. Director Tim Burton assembled an elite group of artists to work on the movie, including Nicolas Cage as Superman. But Warner Brothers scrapped the project shortly before principal photography began.

Written and directed by Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse), The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? gives us an enthralling inside look into what would have been the most original, unexpected and cosmic Superman movie ever made. The film features interviews with director Tim Burton; legendary producers Jon Peters and Lorenzo di Bonaventura; screenwriters Kevin Smith, Wesley Strick and Dan Gilroy; production designer Rick Heinrichs; special effects artist Steve Johnson; storyboard artist Tim Burgard; costume designer Colleen Atwood, and many more.

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? will screen after MCM London Comic Con at 6:15pm – 8:15pm on Friday 22nd May and Saturday 23rd May.
