The following post contains spoilers for the ending flashwith a big cameo appearance by a certain man of steel.
For those who don’t know Kevin Smith I’m a bit of a comic geek. He was even appointed to write the screenplay for the film. Superman Mid 90’s movie. The only problem was a producer named Jon Peters. How did Peters… Superman The movie should go well.
He originally wanted Sean Penn to play the Man of Steel. Ok, that’s reasonable enough. But he also wanted the film to end with this Superman fighting a giant spider. Tim Burton joined as director of the project, which became known as: superman is alive. And Smith was supposed to grant that wish. Burton cast Nicolas Cage as Superman. The only problem is that the budget at this point was about $200 million. The studio ultimately decided to cancel the entire project. superman is alive never saw the light of day.
until the end of 2023 flash. The climax of that whole giant spider? That happens at the end of the movie, when Ezra Miller’s Flash witnesses the collapse of the Multiverse. Nicolas Cage appears as Superman. Kevin Smith recently rolling stone He revealed that he had fought with Peters over the idea of a giant spider to rant about how cool it was, and that he now realized it could actually make for a cool ending to the film.
I had the chance to go to the premiere the other day and saw it again last night at my own movie theater, SModcastle Cinemas. I’m watching it again on Fridays and Saturdays in theaters with audiences. It melts the heart. One of the first things I thought when I saw this movie at the premiere was, “Oh my God, it worked.” I was making fun of Jon Peters and it looked terrible. he wasn’t wrong. All in all, he could have gone wrong.
flash is currently showing in theaters everywhere.
