Special Report: The Death of "Superman Lives": What Happened? (2015)

Special Guests: Jon Schnepp & Holly Payne
Guest Co-Host: Chris Cummins

The fifth feature Superman film took a dozen years and millions of dollars to come to fruition. Along the way the film was almost made as Superman Lives written by Kevin Smith, Wesley Strick, and Dan Gilroy, directed by Tim Burton and starring Nicolas Cage.

The documentary The Death of "Superman Lives": What Happened? digs into the production, from conception to the camera almost rolling. It's a wild tale of creativity, rampant egos, and one of the most eccentric producers Hollywood boasted.

We're joined by nerdlebrity Chris Cummins along with the producer and director of TDOSLWH, Holly Payne and Jon Schepp.
