Unused Superman concept art makes me a little sad

0

A couple months ago, we showed you costume tests from Tim Burton’s aborted Superman Lives. This weekend, the same artist that showed us the costume tests, Steve Johnson, has brought us some unused concept art from the oft-maligned J.J. Abrahms’s Superman Fly-By, a complete reboot of the Superman mythos where Krypton isn’t dead and Lex Luthor is a secret Kryptonian Secret Service agent or something. All of the costume pieces actually look pretty interesting, certainly better than the Superman Lives crap. It’s a great reimagining of the original costume while remaining true to its roots. We also have concept art of Doomsday from Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns. So there was once a version of SuperDeadbeatDad where Superman actually gets to fight something. I think we may be destined to come so, so close to a truly badass Superman movie, only to have it snatched from our hands.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you when Zack Snyder’s Superman does the same damn thing.

Check out all the art below the cut.
