A ton of information has been leaking out in recent weeks for the long-dead 1990s Man of Steel flick Superman Lives, and the latest gives us a good look at the crazy action that could've been.

We’ve already seen a version of the crazy screenplay put together after Tim Burton came on board, which would’ve featured a spiderlike Brainiac battling it out with Krypton’s favorite son, and now some concept art mocked up for a version of the original script by Kevin Smith has now made it into the wild. 

Original producer Jon Peters was apparently keen to have Supes fight with a giant spider, which is why this version of Brainiac is imagined along those lines. The script we saw didn’t sell the idea too well, but this concept art looks pretty cool. Very weird, but cool.

The more we see, the crazier this movie seems to be. Needless to say, we definitely want to see that proposed documentary get funded.
