Back in the ’90s, Warner spent about $50 million developing (then canceling) Superman Lives, a Superman movie directed by Tim Burton and starring Nic Cage. You may have heard about it when we posted Facebook photos of the suits along with a video of Kevin Smith talking about writing a script for the film in which — at producer Jon Peters’ insistence — Superman would fight a giant spider in the third act.

Director Jon Schnepp crowdfunded a documentary about the shelved project, called The Death of Superman Lives, which is going on sale July 9 and will also have a booth (#3915) at San Diego Comic-Con. They released the clip above to the L.A. Times which includes the best footage yet of Nic Cage in one of the Superman suits.
