WCP: Superman Lives – Searching for Nic Cage


The 90’s were a wild time, and they could’ve been wilder.

Jake + Mitch deep-dive into the nostalgic pool of the lost Superman movie.  That’s right, Nicholas Cage, Tim Burton, Kevin Smith, and a giant spider. Superman LIves’ cult status grows stronger by the year, and leaves behind daunting questions:

– What would we make of Jim Carrey’s Brainiac?
– Would this have removed the push for Superman Returns?
– And just how crazy is the Nic Cage casting?… Or was it perfect?

So many what ifs and urban legends have rendered Superman LIves arguably the most infamous big-budget flick never made.  But hey, at least we’ve got loads of screen test footage and WILD WILD WEST out of the deal, right?

SUPERMAN LIVES – oh what might’ve been.
