I wonder if there is enough interest fora comic book based on this idea
I think there would be as an Elseworld's tale (if DC even still does that).

Since a comic book doesn't need the same audience as a big budget summer movie, I think it would be "successful enough" for DC to attempt it.

Although, if they go with the Kevin Smith version of the script, I'm not too sure. That script was terrible.

They were going to try to do something with Cage where he would have looked dramatically different as Superman and as Clark Kent. I have no idea how that would have turned out, though.
That's why they should cast Emilio Estevez as Clark and Charlie Sheen as Superman. Problem solved!

Now, I would have liked it if this movie had been made, but did not actually restore interest in Superman. Maybe then people would appreciate Superman Returns a bit more.

Maybe had this been made, and it essentially was, like Superman Returns, generally dismissed.

Because it would not have been good. But it would have been interesting to have seen.

EDIT: It blows the hell out of the JJ Abram's Superman. There were plenty of unproduced Superman movies. This, and the Kevin Smith script are very sadly the best you can get.... Technically, Smith's script was supposed to be the basis for this, but Burton decided to go in another direction.

As bad as some parts of Abrams script was I liked some parts of the rewrite but overall as a movie would have hated watching it.

I fucking hate Tim Burton.
I must agree with you.

He just makes surreal stuff but doesn't seem to make stuff about human beings at all.

Thank goodness Bandwagon Superman died in favor of SR. SR was bland mix of camp and teenage drama, but it wasn't aggressively bad.

Out of all those failed ideas about suits in a can, polar bears,Kryptonian Lex, TY-Zor, Krypton surviving

SR was a decent path to go. It still had some odd ideas like stalker superman and the kid, but it wasn't anything as outlandish as purposed in previous years.

If Abrams got his shot, I could see him leaving Krypton intact. As we've seen in "Star Trek" he's not shy about doing something drastic.

Imagine Superman instead of a baby seeing the destruction of Krypton at the end of the movie.
