In response to the success of "The Death of Superman" comic book story, Warner Bros. decided to purchase the film rights of the Christopher Reeve Superman franchise from the Salkinds (the makers of the first three films) in 1993 and write a script based on the story.
The plot would have been the same as the story, but with much more dark material.
Why It Was Cancelled
- So far, the only cancellation reason that is known is because the script was too similar to Batman Forever.
- The film was permanently cancelled.
