I would have liked to see this movie made a lot more that the one that was made.

Going to ask a dumb Q,

Is that a real possible storyline? If its's fan created very well done, if not cool that they found it.

Got to say not in love with it, I think its doing way too much in one movie but its still better than the real Superman III :laugh:

Here is a another nice storyline that would have made a good movie or comic book. It is an imaginary story, and it is about 1/4 of the way done on the page typed on an old typewriter.


"The Death of Clark Kent" by Jerry Siegel ( Yes, that Jerry Siegel).

The link will take you to the second page. Just scroll up to the first page and start reading from there.

I'm pretty sure Sgfan this is real. This is the first time i saw this but i hve heard before that Braniac was the original villian of 3 and it fits in the kind of hey we want to make superman 3 but margo kitter and gene hackman aren't in it vibe that its in the final movie.

And i will state i don't really like this.

superman 3 isn't a good movie, but theres stuff to like about it. The Climax with the giant computer is one of the better superman action scenes on film. Richard Pryor is yes not really part of the movie, but he has some scene particularly in the first part of the story that kind of have fun with him as a computer genius and his persona.

That said that genuinigly works is the stuff with Clark and Lana. Theres a low key sweatness to the rommance that you rarely see in action movies- a sence that there both to shy to have it go anywhere though both kind of want to. Really all the stuff in smallville, with her, the realistically loutish ex husband and the kid all are pretty good. Theres a good sence of huamnity that contrasts.

Which is the kind of stuff that this treatment leaves out for supergirl.

It Does leaves in the evil superman stuff, which has an ocasional giggle but really is bad.

To construct a fantasy draft in my head-if they made a story w lana and supergirl where romantic rivals that could have been fun. If with lana in but contrasted it with supergirl. Lana is the girl who likes clark supergirl is the one who likes superman that could be pretty intresting.

Maybe(to continue) Kara lands on earth in a capsule-but with her is a computer program of braniac. He tries to take over the earth-and to destroy all human life to recreate a new krpton for his Adam and Eve. Superman and supergirl have to defeat him, as he realizes he doesn't love her and the thought of recreating a race of supermen is to problematic.

He slowly teaches her to be Linda lee, and not just be a superhero all the time but a normal person. Maybe she dates jimey olsen at the end.

give me 100,000 dollars for it-which is a lot of money in 1980.

In any case a big thanks for finding the document which was fun to read.

This would have been amazing (if true) :woohoo: Though it would have to be a 3 hour epic (there is a lot of story in there - time travel, alternate dimensions, THREE new characters to introduce (not including Lana), galaxy-spanning travel etc). Given the technology at the time, could this even be made and look good? Guess we will never know.

However, kudos to the imagination in the story - brilliant and at the heart of it is a simple, maybe slightly twisted, love triangle. Love it.

And, to me personally, the Superman III that was realised, was garbage. No redeeming qualities imo.

Nice find thank you :)

Peace.
