Years ago, Tim Burton had been rumored to helm a new Superman movie starring Nicholas Cage. For myriad reasons, it never got off the ground — and perhaps we should all be breathing a sigh of relief. Pictures have recently surfaced on the Facebook profile of Steve Johnson, who was in charge of Special Effects for the nascent project. It appears Burton’s take on Superman would have been unique, to say the least.
Besides the Big S and the muscles, there is nothing recognizably Superman about this costume! Still, it would have been interesting to see what Cage and Burton had up their sleeves. All-powerful, all-perfect Superman can be a terribly bland character in uninspired hands.
