In this 2nd Full Trailer for the Feature Film Documentary “The Death of Superman Lives; What Happened?”, we go a little deeper into the misconceptions that the public had of this production, and the effects that had on everyone involved.

Superman Lives is one of the biggest mysteries in modern film history. After making the blockbuster superhero film Batman, filmmaker Tim Burton decided he would try to do something similar for Superman. Kevin Smith wrote a script, Burton cast Nicolas Cage in the lead role and got deep in to pre-production. However, at some point, it got canned. To this day, photos and videos from the pre-production set the Internet on fire.

But what happened? Well filmmaker Jon Schnepp decided to find out. He’a almost done with production on the documentary The Death of Superman Lives; What Happened? and to keep interest piqued, he’s released a second full trailer in as many months.
