Over at the Superman: Man of Steel (2013) Facebook Page, they have uploaded some never-before-seen concept art by Hasbro. The art shows some of the concepts for the toys that would have been released for the failed (thankfully) Superman Lives movie. For those that don’t remember, Superman Lives was to be directed by Tim Burton and Nicholas Cage was set to play Superman in a story which would chronicle a death a rebirth of the Man of Steel. The story went through numerous screen writers (including Kevin Smith) before being put out of its misery.
Thank you to Ben and Brian, who were product designers with Hasbro Toys Group, they’ve shared the artwork for the cancelled movie project “Superman Lives.” It’s great to see this part of Superman history revealed a bit more for the fans! Aside from the well circulated image of the black suit with the small S/, these were other concepts developed both the movie and toy line platforms.
