As well done as they films were, is the vast shadow from the Nolan/Bale trilogy doing damage to the film/TV medium?
If Bryan Singer’s 2006 attempt to jump-start the Superman franchise had succeeded, he had big plans for a sequel which would have included popular comic book villain Darkseid.
With all of the hubbub going on with Zack Snyder's current Man of Steel reboot, inevitably conversations on the internet always veer towards Bryan Singer's Superman Returns.

Concept art is a wonderful tool for filmmakers, and can give them an idea of how they want their films to look well before the cameras start rolling. The problem is there is such an abundance of concept art for a film, not every idea can be used, and inevitably lots of ideas get cut. Every now and again an artist will release these unused concepts in order to give fans a look at what might have been, and this is the case today where fans get to see what Doomsday could have looked like in Bryan Singer's Superman movie.
