Superman: Flyby Concept Art Displays JJ Abrams Scrapped Suit & Krypton

New Superman: Flyby concept art reveals J.J. Abrams’ canceled reboot, including its portrayal of Krypton, the Daily Planet, and the Man of Steel’s costume. As far back as 2002, the co-creator of Lost turned in his script to Warner Bros. with an origin story about a civil war between Jo-El and his corrupt brother Kata-Zor, which would eventually lead to Kal-El being sent to Earth to fulfill a prophecy, being taken in by Jonathan and Martha Kent, and becoming in love with Lois Lane at the Daily Planet.

Superman: Flyby would then see the titular hero face off against Kata-son Zor’s Ty-Zor and three other corrupted Kryptonians on Earth, which would lead to his first death and a trip to the Kryptonian version of Heaven. He would then be resurrected and return to defeat the group, with the film ending as he flew back to Krypton in a spaceship.

The studio would start working right away to get Superman: Flyby off the ground. Brett Ratner would direct, and Christopher Reeve, the actor who played Superman for decades, would help with the casting. There were a lot of actors who were being considered for the lead role, including Josh Hartnett, who was offered a $100 million three-picture deal, Jude Law, Paul Walker, and Brendan Fraser.

All of them thought they weren’t ready to deal with the scheduling and possible typecasting that would come with playing the DC Comics character. While Superman: Flyby will ultimately expire in development hell, audiences are getting a taste of what may have been.

Filmmaker Ryan Unicomb shared concept art from J.J. Abrams’ Superman: Flyby on Twitter over 20 years after the project was ultimately canceled. The images show a look at the scrapped reboot, including the costume design for the Man of Steel and the designs for both Krypton and Metropolis in the reboot. You can see the concept art for the movie below.

There were a lot of things that led to Superman: Flyby’s demise, starting with the fact that it was going to cost more than $200 million. This was a big number on its own, but when it was paired with the money that was spent on Superman Reborn, Nicolas Cage’s Superman Lives, and Batman vs. Superman, it was more of a concern for the studio.

Ratner walked out due to dissatisfaction with the repeated delays in casting the film and creative issues with producer Jon Peters and was replaced by McG in 2003, who was eyeing Jason Behr, Henry Cavill, Jared Padalecki, and Michael Cassidy. However, when McG also left, Abrams tried to get in the running to direct, but WB would drop the movie together.

With Superman: Flyby being canceled by the studio, the Man of Steel would instead return to the screen in Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, which is a “sequel” to the Christopher Reeve movies with Brandon Routh taking over the role of Superman. The movie would get mostly positive reviews from critics, but it didn’t do well at the box office, making just over $391 million against a reported $223 million production budget.

There were no plans for a sequel. J.J. Abrams is getting another chance to work with both Superman and the DC Comics world. He is producing both a Justice League Dark universe for HBO Max and a film about a Black Man of Steel from Ta-Nehisi Coates that is reportedly a reboot set outside of the DC Extended Universe.
