Kevin Smith admits he was caught up in Warner Bros.'s recent cuts to HBO Max and has spoken about his own canceled plans to bring Nicolas Cage in to play Bizarro Superman in a DC television series.

Smith, who rose to fame in the 1990s off the back of his independent film Clerks is well known for his love of the comic-book world, and in addition to penning his own issues for both Marvel and DC comics, he also directed episodes for the CW's The Flash and Supergirl.

Smith was also responsible for writing an early version of the script for Superman Lives, Tim Burton's infamous Superman reboot film, which was also set to star Cage before it was canceled in 1998.

Over the past week, Warner Bros. Discovery has dominated headlines with their decision to shelve the HBO Max film Batgirl along with several other projects in various stages of development.
