Tim Burton's 1995 SUPERMAN LIVES Movie "Disco Suit?! Pics! DC Comics!

That's right. You HAVE to look. Direct from the many terrific guys and gals at the GEEK TYRANT website, here is a look at one of the proposed SUPERMAN movie suits we'd have been enjoying, if Tim Burton was ever allowed to proceed with his vision of the character and movie franchise! Take a good look. Absorb it. SUPERMAN RETURNS doesn't seem so bad now, does it? Click here to see actual video of the super-suit! Click images to enlarge. If you must.

I remember Producer Jon Peters saying they had to find a way to get the character into something other than that ridiculous "costume" he usually wears. He said that the average person doesn't GET the super-suit. Sigh.

One of Kevin Smith's runs at a script for this version is online in various places and it's obvious he was doing what he could to salvage things but was stuck in a bad situation...and then when Nick Cage refused to leave the project no matter what.....AAARRGH! I like Cage and he loves Superman but he is NOT Superman!!!

At best, SUPERMAN RETURNS ended up dull and familiar. Tim Burton's version would have been a HIS version of the dreadful BATMAN & ROBIN.
