For years the internet has celebrated that Tim Burton’s awful sounding reboot Superman Lives starring Nic Cage never made it into theaters. Now new concept has hit that will make you even happier this project got canned….
Superman Lives is the title for a canceled Superman movie intended for production during the 1990s. The movie would feature Lex Luthor, Brainiac, and Doomsday as villains. The project was, however, scrapped. The next Superman movie that was released (after several such scripts being written and then aborted) was Superman Returns.
The movie centered on a version of “The Death of Superman” storyline from the comics. The main villain was the alien supercomputer, Brainiac, and he had a plot to kill Superman by simultaneously blotting out the sun and unleashing Doomsday on metropolis. The plot works, and Superman is killed.
Later in the movie, he is ressurected by the Eradicator, who acts as his temporary costume, and artificially produces all of his powers.
An evil computer (from Krypton) in human form. Energy vampire that constantly needs to recharge his artificial powersource. Seeks the “perfect” body of the Eradicator to overcome his biggest vulnerability (loss of power). Has the ability to “hard-wire” (download) his consciousness into various “beasts” from the Universe. Is mysterious and wicked looking. Is tall with a huge head. Body has exposed circuitry that extrudes from it.
Alien lifeform genetically engineered by Brainiac to destroy Superman. Super-adaptive; Can not be defeated in the same way twice. Huge, monstrous form with glaring eyes and razor-sharp claws. Has sharp bony protrusions from head to toe.
