TVAMD Episode 191: Talk Supe, Part 2!

Sean, Greg and Andrew return to finish their discussion of Superman. They talk about Superman's quest for peace as he tries to rid the world of nuclear weapons like his atomic hair clone. They also talk about the Superman movies that never happened. Written by Kevin Smith? Directed by Tim Burton? Starring Nicholas Cage? Or Sean Penn? Fighting Brainiac and giant spiders over the fate of the bottled city of Kandor? Those are a few of the things that could have been a part of a Superman movie before Superman Returns and Man of Steel hit the screens.
