With the crowdfunding effort winding to a close, the creators behind the documentary The Death of Superman Lives; What Happened? have released a new trailer digging deeper into the weirdest superhero movie that never was.

The ambitious documentary seems to have interviewed just about everyone involved in Tim Burton’s ill-fated take on the Man of Steel (including Burton himself), and the latest trailer focuses on the misconceptions people had about the 1990's would-be flick Superman Lives, many of which linger on to this day thanks to the bizarro concept art and numerous script leaks.

From the translucent suit to the freaky spider concept art and the very casting of Nic Cage to play Superman — this movie would’ve been an epic train wreck we’d have loved to see. Oh well, I guess this documentary will have to do.

Check out the latest trailer below and marvel at the insanity:

Producer and director Jon Schnepp has put in a ton of leg work to get the project to this point, though he’s still looking to raise a bit more money to get the doc finished. Check out the official site for more details.
