396: The first video shows writer / director Kevin Smith detailing his experiences working on a proposed Superman film which fell through. One of the things that he mentions is film producer Jon Peters’ obsession with giant spiders, which he insists be included into story lines under his review. (He has unsuccessfully lobbied for such inclusions in projects such as Superman and Sandman. He was successful in the case of the film Wild Wild West. ) The second clip is from the film Superman: Doomsday which makes a reference to this incident with Kevin Smith himself playing a cameo.
