UPDATE:Even More Toy And Movie Concept Art From SUPERMAN LIVES

<font color=red>UPDATE:</font>Even More Toy And Movie Concept Art From SUPERMAN LIVES

Take a look at some even more concept art from the toy line that would have been attached with Superman Lives. In this batch we get more of Brainiac's Ship, Humanoid Brainiac, Doomsday, and more!

Thanks again from a heads up by the people over at Tim Burton.JP we have a look at even more toy and movie concept art from Tim Burton's Superman Lives. A couple of days ago we got a look at a skull looking ship that would have been Brainiac's ship, and now with this group we get a couple more renderings of it. Along with his ship we also get a look at what a humanoid Brainiac might have looked like. One of the story lines from the failed movie would have had Superman dieing at the hands of the powerful Doomsday and thanks to some of the toy art we get a look at the direction they might have been going with as far as his look. Another piece of art has Superman fighting an alien in what looks to be a space ship, and of course it wouldn't be Superman Lives concept art if there wasn't a questionable Superman costume thrown in.

Humanoid Brainiac

An evil computer (from Krypton) in human form. Energy vampire that constantly needs to recharge his artificial powersource. Seeks the “perfect” body of the Eradicator to overcome his biggest vulnerability (loss of power). Has the ability to “hard-wire” (download) his consciousness into various “beasts” from the Universe. Is mysterious and wicked looking. Is tall with a huge head. Body has exposed circuitry that extrudes from it.


Alien lifeform genetically engineered by Brainiac to destroy Superman. Super-adaptive; Can not be defeated in the same way twice. Huge, monstrous form with glaring eyes and razor-sharp claws. Has sharp bony protrusions from head to toe.

Brainiac's Ship

Superman VS. Alien

Superman's Suit

Art by Pete Von Sholly

UPDATE: Thanks to a heads up from the artist, Pete Von Sholly, who let me know that that the "Robo-Superman" was done in good fun and was NOT being considered as a potential suit for that movie.

Once again this gives us a pretty good look at what exactly they were going for as far as a look of the movie. Last look at Brainiac we had from this movie they had him looking like a spider. Do you prefer the more humanoid looking Braniac as shown above or the one that looks more like a spider? As usual sound your thoughts off in the comment boxes below.

Spidey91 - 1/8/2012, 4:05 PM

MartianSupermanhunter22 - 1/8/2012, 4:20 PM
Wtf is that last picture?!?! Holy hell that's awful!
nowtheresaBATman - 1/8/2012, 4:26 PM
the last picture is from the new 52 lol
Guerillas - 1/8/2012, 4:26 PM
would love me som brainiac- movie- love though. Maybe in the sequal? Rise of the man of steel who returns and then strikes again.
superbatspiderman - 1/8/2012, 4:28 PM
I know this movie probably would have been terrible but I would like to see footage or something just to see what it was actually like. At least Lex Luthor wasn't the main villain.

... Brainiac's ship looks like Dr. Wily's ship.

SkaarJones - 1/8/2012, 4:46 PM
What a hunk of festering, fly covered Burton.
95 - 1/8/2012, 4:46 PM
I like the ship and alien design. Haven't seen that in a live action film yet. You listening WB/Snyder/Goyer/Nolan?
Supes17 - 1/8/2012, 4:52 PM
Nolan should have called the new one Superman Begins:p
Then make The Man of Steel and The Man of Steel Rises..
MrReese - 1/8/2012, 5:06 PM
wow those r [frick]in terrible!!

Cavill will be a beast come next year :D
BSingerFoxMen - 1/8/2012, 5:14 PM
This is horrible...just...horrible! Glad it never got made, but would still love to see it if that makes any sense at all lol I have a feeling that The Man of Steel sequal will be more of the same crap we've seen before. The villain will be Lex Luthor and Nuclear Man!!!! C'mon we want something NEW!!! ZOD...IS...NOT...NEW no matter how you portray him! Why is this so hard for them to understand? WB's movies fail on an epic scale because they refuse to listen to the people who line their pockets!
HellsHammer - 1/8/2012, 5:18 PM
Is that Doomsday or Balrog?!!
HellsHammer - 1/8/2012, 5:19 PM
have to say though looks like there would have been more action than returns had
mgeoff88 - 1/8/2012, 5:21 PM
You know, Brainiac, Doomsday and Brainiac's ships in the second and third pictures, actually don't look too bad.

Superman's suit... That must be Robo-Superman. No relation to Robocop. :P

This movie would have been a train wreck.
warlock - 1/8/2012, 5:25 PM
Lmao , braniac looks bad aassss.. but superman and dooms days a no no
warlock - 1/8/2012, 5:26 PM
Superman a joke.
SageMode - 1/8/2012, 5:28 PM
Disgraceful shit
113 - 1/8/2012, 6:05 PM
God, what the hell were they thinking? So much fail. I never get tired of seeing this leaked photos of the canceled Superman Lives because it reminds me how close we came to seeing the Superman version of Batman & Robin.
xXkryptoniteXx - 1/8/2012, 6:16 PM

Superman returns is worst then this? Serious? You want nick cage for superman? Shut up and go hang your self

Also concept art doesn't mean nothing, it's just a pitch of an idea that could or won't make it in the finally product.
ArrowToTheKnee - 1/8/2012, 6:21 PM
The first half of these pictures look pretty damn awesome!

That superman suit however - may it be boiled in the juices of a thousand sweaty testicles.
thewolfx - 1/8/2012, 6:40 PM
omg that has to be the worst superman incarnation i have ever seen

(refering tothe last pic)

funny how it looks like the new f2 suit
THABATMAN - 1/8/2012, 6:41 PM
doomsday looks like crap.
brainiac looks ok.
Brainiacs ship is the best looking thing in this
and Supermans suit looks horrific
Coachella - 1/8/2012, 6:55 PM
Some of the pictures look cool
Kryptonlastson22 - 1/8/2012, 7:00 PM
Glad this never happened.

The Braniac ships are by artist Sylvain Despretz. Two more scene concepts here:

Love the robot thingy.
zachman2013 - 1/8/2012, 7:20 PM
tim burton should definatley stay away from the superhero genre, and stay in the "make johny depp look like michael jackson in all of my movies" genre.
Nick56 - 1/8/2012, 7:32 PM
I would have liked to see the film. It defs looks more action packed and cool than Superman returns.
thalidomide - 1/8/2012, 7:38 PM
all of them are crap! LOL
RyanLantern77 - 1/8/2012, 7:42 PM
Doomsday is decent. Everything else is beyond shit
vamp21 - 1/8/2012, 7:56 PM
I like the art but I don't think it would have looked that good as a live action film. Perhaps a animated movie that is a direct to DVD release.
SamHell - 1/8/2012, 8:06 PM
brainiac looks good but.............

this whole project, art, and everything that has to do with this turd should be locked up in a big wooden crate, put away, and never be spoke of again.
AlternateNo4 - 1/8/2012, 8:09 PM
@noregrets thanks for adding a little perspective.

i tend to look for reasons to like things rather than hate on them, and this movie always made me feel like maybe there was something i didn't know about it that might make it make more sense.

glad to hear maybe i was right. if nothing else, it looks like an actual science fiction movie. yeah, nic cage is a bad idea in any role, but otherwise i wonder how bad it really would have been after all.
MatioShack - 1/8/2012, 8:53 PM
Human please. Spider-braniac is the suck.
EditNinja - 1/8/2012, 11:02 PM
I'll have to read that screenplay one day...
Succthis - 1/9/2012, 2:50 AM
Burton likes himself waaaay too much. Total garbage.
