There are a few issues of pop culture that are more popular than about jobs that were in development but it never happened. The Story of George Miller Justice League. Photo by James Cameron Spider-Man. Tim Burton’s Story Superman. And the last one has a better story than the Man of Steel himself. At one point, it was Kevin Smith Superman.
In a new interview for a show of Yahoo the Never-Weresthe director of Writers, Mallrats, and Chasing AmY told the story of how, later Mallratsfound himself writing a Superman essay based on the famous early history of the 1990s DC “Death of Superman” to his two Mallrats players with it.
“I was writing it [Ben] Affleck, “Smith said.” Ben was warm. As he was there. I think he was hired Armageddon. … Affleck, is a fearsome giant, as if bound as a hero, bound as an action giant, especially for his height. Then he wears the muscles again. So in my head and in my heart, it was always Ben and Michael Rooker, which was amazing Mallrats to meet again. ”
Smith found himself writing a script after reading Warner Bros. Superman Born Again. “[I said] ‘Oh my god, it’s bad. The whole script, [it’s like] the people who wrote do not understand Superman at all. It’s kind of a joke and so on. There are ways, honestly speaking of this … athe audience appreciates the abuse, ‘”Smith said.
As a result he wrote his own essays but encountered problems with producer Jon Peters, who was directing freedom at the time. Peters had a very different kind of love for the comic books that Smith had, especially when it came to acting. Peters wanted Sean Penn, a recent Oscar winner. “He is going, ‘Look into his eyes [Dead Man Walking]. He is [got] cruel eyes, murderous eyes, ‘”Smith says of Peters. “And I was like, ‘Dude, it’s Superman.

Burton threw Nicolas Cage and chased Smith’s complete script, wthis is the whole story (and notes, called Death of Superman Hearts; and very good if you can find it). But Smith, and Peters in a way, both had good ideas for Superman. It just so happened that decades before the world was ready.
