Documentary About Tim Burton’s Failed Superman Lives Gets a Trailer, Needs Your Help

Is it because he wanted to give Superman a funny hat?

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? is a documentary about the Tim Burton-directed, Kevin Smith-penned, Nic Cage-starring Superman movie that might have been. We’ve all heard a lot of rumors about the production and what went wrong, and this documentary seeks to find the truth, but it’s running out of money.

The documentary launched a successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2013 raising more than $115,000–a good bit over their goal of $98,000. That money is apparently running out as the trailer also calls for people to go to which links to a page trying to raise $85,000 to finish editing and post-production work on the film. That campaign has 46 days left, and so far they’ve only raised a little over $7,000.
