Watch Tim Burton's Silly "Superman Lives" Suit in Action

Posted: December 16th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Watch Tim BurtonSubmit Comment
Back in October, we showed you several photos of costume designs from "Superman Lives," a 1998 film that was set to be directed by Tim Burton from a script by Kevin Smith and starring Nicolas Cage. The project was eventually scrapped due to budget concerns.

Today, we have a video of the actual Superman suit, which is apparently just a big light-show. Some believe that this outfit is the "eradicator" suit that the script describes as a Kryptonian life support system with onboard AI and weapons that is meant to protect Superman while he recovers from his fight with Doomsday.

In other words, Superman would become Iron Man. And while the video looks atrocious, it's hard to tell how the suit would have looked on the big screen. Maybe not that hard.

Video:

Once it's under the irrisdcent beetle-colored armor plates, that would actually look pretty cool. Keep in mind that it wasn't the actual Super-suit, but the solar-recharging-battery suit that brought him back to life after he died.
It makes a hell of a lot more sense than his usual attire.

I think it would look cool in movie if well used.

What the f*ck is wrong with all you!? This looks terrible.. It looks like some cheap piece of sh*t Christmas tree!! The traditional blue tights is the only attire Superman should wear..
rabid writes:

In the comics he got slaughtered by Doomsday and had to wear a special suit for months that absorbed solar radiation to heal him. The black and silver suit was the only decent thing about that entire storyline, but I really do prefer this fx version. Its alien, unique, and when lit with lasers and fog on a dark Fortress of Solitude set, I could see it looking pretty wicked.

how come when WP posts a story about a movie that was supposed to made 10 years ago they insist on saying "script by Kevin Smith" when he has said that he got fired off the project ONCE Tim Burton JOINED! or maybe you guys just didn't comment cuz it seems like WP never learns it lesson.

Always some fanatical Kevin Smith pole smoker rushing in to defend Kevin Smith for his part in the Superman Lives fiasco.

Yep Tim Burton and Nick Cage are complete *ssholes for such an half ass attempt at a Superman movie, but not Kevin, nope Kevin did everything he was supposed to do and then some.

Bullsh*t.

There ain't a copy of Kevin's screenplay anywhere on the entire planet that doesn't fully illustrate that if he isn't a no talent douchebag, then at the very least he should stay as far away as he possible can from any super hero movie project.

That sh*t stunk so bad that you could read directly from it at open mic night at your local comedy club and have most of the people laughing their asses off.

Those scripts were so bad that if Kevin Smith flew around the planet and went back in time and handed the script to George Reeves, after reading it Reeves would have punched Kevin in his fat smug face and told him that he had too much dignity and respect for the character to be part of such a travesty.

But Kevin being the blowhard that he is, he blames the producer, he blames the director, he blames Warner Bros. And he'll blame anyone and everyone because he's a big fat non-accepting responsibility fat hairy p*ssy...

...Because that's what Kevin Smith does.

Sucky ass comic book movie writer, sucky ass comic book writer...

If you are quick to sh*t on Frank Miller's Batman origin story Batman: Year One by having Batman reveal to someone else that one of the first times he went out with the costume on that he was nervous like a school girl and pissed all over himself, then you are a crappy writer...

Not just for saying that Batman should be wearing adult diapers, but also because you intentionally sh*t all over another much more capable writer previous work.

Kevin needs to stick to his crappy little films that focus on the Quicky Mart and how awesome it is to constantly regurgitate his past life when he was a complete nobody.

And also being one tenth of a man and accepting a little responsibility for the nasty crap that he spewed out into the world would also be nice.

Even Nicholas Cage is man enough to admit that his role in the Superman Lives project was an intentional mistake...

...But not big fat hairy p*ssy Kevin Smith, listen to him and his fans and you'll get the idea that he was the one redeemable thing about that project.

He wasn't, and it don't matter how many times you watch Clerks and Clerks 2 and masturbate to pictures of Silent Bob...

...Crap is still crap.

Hey,I was wondering.A lot of people I know hate Nicolas Cage.What about you here.If you do too,can you explain why?I want to understand.I think that he is a pretty good actor

Give me a good villian

Make it more of a serious realism like Nolan has done with Batman

And hurry up, Im tired of being teased by this crap of past concepts

You might think you're some sort of comic book elitist, but really, dude, you have the absolute worst taste in them. Really.

So that solar suit was made (pseudo fashionable) for Supes to heal?

Why wouldn't he just fly into the sun?

Ranger... because he was dead. A Kryptonian cyborg resuscitated his corpse, but he was comatose and powerless. It took him months of wearing the kryptonian suit to regain his powers to the point that he could fly again.
rabid writes:

Also his cells couldn't absorb solar rays reliably after coming back. A year later his cells overloaded and he dissapated into pure energy. STARlabs got their hands on his regenerative suit and Lex Luthor refashioned it into that horrible blue/white suit to save his life. He had to wear it to keep from fading into nonexistence... Would have been around the time they were making this movie.

@rabid - thx. That's well after my days of collecting.

So they've brought back the dead and have even more Kryptonians around beyond his cousin, dog, monkey, horse, etc. in the form of a cyborg?! I hope it read better than it sounds.

Again, if sun he needed to heal... just fly into it (unless he couldn't fly either).

Only the robotic half of Eradicator was Kryptonian. The organic part was an Earthling. It was a robot originally designed to lead Kryptonian colonization missions and wipeout any higher lifeforms.

yes its over the top but that burton for ya.

think it would look better if the colours were a bit deeper and the lights didnt move around the suit so fast like dynamo from running man
