McG's SUPERMAN: FLYBY - Awesome New Image Of Superman Maquette
Tim Burton JP, posted a new image of a Superman maquette from the defunct, Superman: Flyby. A film that would've starred Robert Downey Jr. as Lex Luthor, and been directed by McG ("Charlie's Angels"), based on a script written by J.J. Abrams ("Star Trek").
Update! Tim Burton JP (Facebook Page/Tumblr Page), has posted an image of a Superman maquette that they believed was from Nicolas Cage and Tim Burton's Superman Lives, but based on past images posted on Superman Homage, we can see producer, Jon Peters, posing with the maquette and it is identified as being from the Superman: Flyby production. As for the maquette itself, it is a model (usually made from clay) that is sculpted by a member of the art department, to give producers a 3D representation of a character from the film.
For those of you that aren't familiar with Superman: Flyby. It was a Superman film that was written by J.J. Abrams ("Super 8") in the early 2000's. Originally Brett Ratner ("Rush Hour") was attached to direct, but he was later replaced with music video savant, McG ("We Are Marshall"). You can read a brief breakdown the script below, or a more detailed version by clicking here.
