What if Superman V hadn't been cancelled?

What Could Have Been: Superman 5

Bullets & Blockbusters looked at the original and ill-fated Superman V script that would have featured Christopher Reeve had Superman IV not been so bad and the whole franchise collapsed into itself. Although I knew about the weird journey that Superman IV’s sequel took from the late 80s into the 90s, I’d never heard the OG script involving Brainiac and it actually sounded like it would have been watchable.

Alas, we’ll never get it but it’s fun to dream.
