If you're unaware of the never-made J.J. Abrams' Superman movie, you are in for a treat. Here's a video breakdown of the insanity that could have been, including one dead and then resurrected Superman.
A decade ago, J.J. Abrams wrote the script for Superman: Flyby, a Superman origin movie that was to be directed by Brett Ratner or McG.

Terminator Salvation director McG was in the running to direct the zombie cop film R.I.P.D., an adaptation of the Dark Horse graphic novel. But the L.A. Times reports he's going to be too busy directing his romantic comedy project, This Means War, which means R.I.P.D. could fall to director Robert Schwentke (who's…
Elizabeth Banks is set to star in McG's live-action Tinkerbell movie, Tink. Quick, everyone shout, "There's No Such Things As Fairies!", and maybe this pixie movie will die off.
