What happens when Kevin Smith, Tim Burton and Nicolas Cage walk into a Hollywood Production office in the mid-90’s?
Well, eventually nothing, but not for lack of trying and one of the most off-beat superhero screenplays ever written!
Superman Lives is based loosely on the Death and Return of Superman storyline in which Brainiac employs the services of Doomsday to bring about the Man of Steel’s demise. Featuring the witty banter we’ve come to expect from Kevin Smith, this table read promises to be more entertaining than Man of Steel, Batman V. Superman and Justice League combined!
