Prior to Bryan Singer taking on Superman, back around 1998, Tim Burton was taking a stab at the hero. It never got beyond development, but this site has what claims to be some early concept art for the film, showing what a drastically different film Burton's Superman Lives would have been. From this painting, it looks like he was doing it as H.R. Giger's Frankenstein. If it seems like a joke, I think I know why. Take a look at the John Hancock on this masterpiece. J. Carson! Johnny, you're still crackin' us up!
