More Toy Concept Art From Tim Burton's Failed SUPERMAN LIVES
A couple of weeks ago we got some new concept designs from a toy line from Tim Burton's unfinished Superman project Superman Lives, now take a look a some new art that includes a rejuvenation suit for Supes, a tomb, and a design for Braniac's ship.
Thanks to a heads up from Tim Burton.JP we have a new look at some toy concept art from the ever so famously doomed Superman Lives project. Not only does the concept art gives us another look at the Superman world Tim Burton was creating, but its gives some plot information as well. This includes what is being called the Eradicator suit that is designed to keep Superman's powers during the "period of darkness" that would have been in the film. Another piece of art that is featured is the Superman suit that would have been featured early on in the movie. Although it has some classic design elements in there, it is still a complete 180 from any other versions of the Superman costume.
Superman appears in this suit in the beginning of the movie, until his “death.”Reflects an updated” 90’s look” to Superman’s traditional suit. Maintains signature colors of the blue tights with the red cape. Key design elements include the all new, contemporized “S” shield, and the addition of chest armor and shoulder pads.
Eradicator Suit Sperman
Special suit made from Eradicator technology that restores Superman’s powers during the darkness on Earth. Encloses Superman entirely to completely hide his identity; creates a powerful new silohuette for Superman. Suit magnifies all of Superman’s traditional powers. Sleek and aerodynamic metallic suit that pulses with light energy (light piping). Includes smooth armor accented with hieroglyphic designs.
Created by Jor-EI, Superman’s father, to be Superman’s “protector” and to rescue him from Death. Embodies the “newtechnology” and the “good” of Krypton. Is a power source that never runs out. Comes to “life” in the Fortress of Solitude where he re-activates Superman’s signature technology. Can take different forms depending on the situation and the specific need required to protect Superman. Appears in the movie in two different forms: 1)as a humanoid; 2)as “special suit” for energizing Superman during the all-encompassing darkness. As a humanoid, the Eradicator is majestic, wisely and imposing.
Has a heroic body, composed of pure energy, that is clothed is translucent robes.
“Recovery Suit” Superman
Superman wears this suit in the rejuvenation chamber in the Fortress of Solitude. Suit is laden with Kryptonian technology, including triangular-shaped energy ports for “plugging” Superman into the Eradicator technology (for restoration of his powers). Energy “circulates” visibly through the sculpted Kryptonian power matrix (use of light pipe and translucent areas on the figure). Likely to be dark metallic blue with light accent colors.
Superman Lives Brainiac’s Skull Ship Maquette
Once again these are just toy designs, but it does give us a little insight into the movie. With us knowing that Superman would have died in the film it looks like that when he came back was when Burton was going to change the suit to the mock ups we have already seen. As usual sound of your thoughts in the places below.
