Wesley Strick's SUPERMAN LIVES Script Hits the Web
The website Superman Homepage has recently received a copy of Wesley Strick's script for Tim Burton's Superman Lives, which ended up being turned down due to budget concerns. Could it possibly be the adaptation of the iconic character you'd actually like to see?
Prior to its cancellation, the script for the Superman Lives project had undergone several rewrites, with Wesley Strick (Doom, 2010's A Nightmare on Elm Street) being the writer chosen to completely rewrite Kevin Smith's version of the screenplay, following Tim Burton's involvement in the project. However, Strick was ultimately discharged from the now-aborted project, due to the script he wrote said to be going over the budget, allowing writer Dan Gilroy to take over the position. Now, despite being deemed as one of the rarest scripts of the project to ever be publicized, the folks over at Superman Homepage have recently gotten their hands on the script, which features a spider-legged Brainiac as the main villain.

So, did Warner Bros. make the right decision by turning down the script, or does it accord to your image of a perfect Superman movie instead? Sound off with your thoughts on the usual space provided below.
Superman Lives is the title for a canceled Superman movie intended for production during the 1990's, which was set to be directed by Tim Burton, with actor Nicholas Cage starring in the titular role. The movie was based on "The Death of Superman" storyline from the comics, with the alien supercomputer known as Brainiac serving as the primary antagonist of the movie, plotting to kill Superman by simultaneously blotting out the sun and unleashing Doomsday on Metropolis.
