‘Nicolas Cage’s’ Superman Did Not Live
In the 1990, Tim Burton was directing the superhero movie with Nicolas Cage as Superman. The film had the title Superman Lives but was not completed & the project was discontinued. Nicolas says that he feels pleased that the film was not made. The documentary ‘The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?’ shows why & under what circumstances the film was cancelled.
Nicolas stated that he had great belief in that film & in what Tim Burton’s vision was going to be for that film. I would have loved to have seen it, but hee feel that in many ways, it was sort of a win/win because of power of the imagination.He think people can actually see the film in their minds now & imagine it and in many ways that might reverberate more deeply than the finished project.
He also talked about director Tim Burton & said that the Tim is the total artist, a pure artist with a real vision, and we have frequently said that he can create worlds & that is exactly what he does. He saw some of the tests of different characters & costumes for Krypton & they were just so surreal & so magical and beautiful. He is definitely one of my favourite moviemakers because of his originality, because of his vision.
