"The Death of 'Superman Lives': What Happened?" isn't all just Cage doing super calisthenics; the documentary also puts a lot of long-held "Superman Lives" rumors on blast. For example, the lightning super suit (seen above) was not going to be used for the entirety of the film. There would be no rainbow lightbrite Superman - a fact that Schnepp clears up. According to the documentary, that suit was made for a singular moment early on in the film.
"The Death of 'Superman Lives': What Happened?" will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and video on demand on July 9 only through the documentary's website or at booth #3915 at San Diego Comic-Con.
I didn't pay too much attention to it at the time, but with yesterday's release of new stills from the movie by EW.com, details from the posted plot description seemed more credible. For example, the post specifies a scene in which Bruce Wayne is dancing/flirting with Diana Prince at a fundraising event... and we then got the image from the film of that very scene a few days later.
I have no way of confirming whether the rumored plot description posted at IMDB is for real or not. Having read it, it does seem rather detailed and includes many elements that sound plausible and actually quite impressive.
If you do choose to head on over to the IMDB message boards and read the possible detailed plot description for yourself, be warned that it may contain MAJOR SPOILERS.
When I learned that I got the part there were a mixture of many emotions that rushed through me - elation, relief, immense joy and then, there was also a huge sense of responsibility that came immediately. I definitely thought to myself, "Oh man, you've got your work cut out for you."
Were you a big comic book fan growing up or have you had to play catch up now that you have this role?
Strangely, I was a DC fan, not so much the comics. I loved Michael Keaton's Batman. I grew up with those movies. One of my closest friends is a huge comic book reader and has been since he was very, very little. He really turned me onto them in college - more graphic novels than comic books. I have had to play some catch up specifically with the Supergirl books. I've been reading the New 52 series and more of the newly published Supergirl comics.
How did you feel the first time you put on the Supergirl costume?
The first time I put the costume on, it was a mixture of a lot of emotions. It's impossible not to feel empowered when you put it on. You would think, "Oh, it's silly. I'm putting on tights. I'm putting on a leotard and a skirt. There's muscles built into the suit. There's a cape. I'm going to feel like it's Halloween." But something changes internally. I feel like a different person almost. It really is an alter ego, where I feel inspired, hopeful and empowered. I tried the suit for the first time on at the costume designer's house. I had just had an injury to my eye, so I had an eye patch on. [Laughs] So simultaneously, I'm feeling all these feelings of empowerment and positivity and femininity and strength, and I have this pirate patch on essentially. It was a little goofy. There was two things going on at once - two opposing factors of trying the suit on.
