Default Superman V : The New Movie

i wonder if anyone else remembers this....

after the box-office failure of Superman IV: The Quest for Cheap Effects, the Salkinds regained control of the franchise for a period of time,and were looking into doing a Superman V , pitting Superman against Braniac,who would shrink and depower the Man of Steel,and place him into the Bottle City of Kandor....they wanted to bring back a reluctant Christopher Reeve as Superman,but toyed with the idea of replacing the rest of the cast,from Lois ,to Jimmy,to Perry...eventually,the idea died after Reeve refused,and the Salkinds planned to make Superman: The New Movie with Gerald Christopher graduating from his role as Superboy in the TV show to full-fledged SuperMAN in a motion picture...that,too,died quickly....

part of me REALLY wishes that this movie had been made! might've been the fitting,final tribute to Chris Reeve's portrayal of the Man of Steel,rather than the ending we got left with...but i wonder : after the commercial and critical flop of S4,would anyone have even cared?!

I've read the script by Cary Bates, its fantastic and very ambitious for a script of its time. Don't know why but reading it I pictured Rutger Hauer as Brainiac.

If they'd have had the right budget it would have been one hell of a movie.

Sounds interesting. Never heard of this proposed script until now. Anywhere I can find it online?

I'm pretty sure its on superman homepage or just type it into google.

There's a really good interview with Cary Bates on the script I'll post it later just can't do it from my phone cause its pants.

funny,i actually swear i thought that the whole shrinking and depowering Superman idea was so they could save money on effects,with him powerless for half the movie or more...

I'm pretty sure it would have saved money but some of the scenes in the script would have been very expensive and ambitious.
