For our June edition, The Flickering Myth Movie Show decided to visit London MCM Comic Con. Because we can. And we’re slightly (ok, very) obsessed with Willa Holland (Thea Queen from Arrow).
Not only did we get a chance to talk to her…we also chased down Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Iain de Caestecker (Leo Fitz) and Nick Blood (Lance Hunter), the director and producer duo of The Death of Superman Lives! What Happened? Jon Schnepp and Holly Payne and super YouTuber TOMSKA.
BUT WAIT – THERE’S MORE!
Like, ‘Faust from ItsSuperEffective’ more, talking comic books, Captain America: Civil War and hipster Joker from Suicide Squad; ‘James Tarpey from Robot Overlords‘ more, picking his movies of the month (there’s lots of Jurassic World chat) and working with Gillian Anderson; and, finally, ‘MusicalBethan’ more, doing that cup thing from Pitch Perfect. It’s mighty impressive.

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES! WHAT HAPPENED?
…delves into one of Hollywood’s most enthralling ‘what could have been’ stories. In 1996, Warner Brothers engaged Kevin Smith to write the screenplay (‘Superman Lives’). Director Tim Burton assembled an elite group of artists to work on Superman Lives, including Nicolas Cage as Superman. Warner Brothers scrapped the project shortly before principal photography began. This documentary directed by Jon Schnepp features interviews with director Tim Burton; legendary producers Jon Peters and Lorenzo di Bonaventura; screenwriters Kevin Smith, Wesley Strick, and Dan Gilroy; production designer Rick Heinrichs; special effects artist Steve Johnson; storyboard artist Tim Burgard; costume designer Colleen Atwood, and many more. This film delivers an inside look into what would have been the most original, unexpected and cosmic Superman movie ever made. It’s available on VOD from 9th July.
…directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howward (The Help), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi), Jake Johnson (New Girl), Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3), Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer), B.D.
