      sorry Jon, looks like my brother's blu ray player is crap. Works fine on mine. Sorry to scare you. Amazing documentary by the way!! Thanks!

    3. Creator Jimmy nguyen on September 10

      Hey haven't got anything, please let me know status. I haven't check in a while, but it said that the disc shipped in july/august and it is september. thanx in advance

    4. Creator Adam Smith on September 2

      Hey Jon,
      I never received the download link for the digital copy. It's possible it went into Junk and got deleted or something. Could you send/resend it? I backed at the $25 level.


    5. Creator Jon Schnepp on August 28

      @ David Macdonald: that's odd. Please send it back to me and I'll replace it for you.

    6. Creator Andy Molloy on August 28

    7. Creator David Macdonald on August 23

    10. Creator Jeff on August 19

      Blu ray showed up. While I'm not a fan of the kickstarter overall, it was a very good documentary.

      My name is Bill Young. I was glad to see that these are shipping out but I haven't gotten my digital copy yet.

    16. Creator Jeff on August 11

      These ship or is there another delay?

    17. Creator Jon Schnepp on August 10

      @ Jake Cohn: you should have gotten it a few days ago, thanks for your support and patience!

    18. Creator Jon Schnepp on August 7

      Sorry, Jake, like I mentioned, a few people slipped through the over 2000 kickstarters. I just sent your digital copy to your email, and all the blu-ray/DVD combo packs are shipping to all kickstarters next week. Thanks for your patience.

    19. Creator Jake Cohn on August 6

      Hi, my name is Jake Cohn and I still have not received a digital copy/link. Am I even getting one of the blu ray copies? I've been eagerly awaiting to see this film, and being a backer, I would've loved to see it before the masses get email is Please send a digital copy and also let me know if I'm actually going to receive a blu Ray copy. Thanks!

    20. Creator Jeff on August 6

      Oh good, another update on the blu rays getting ready to ship but not shipped yet.

    21. Creator Christian Sowards on August 5

      just making sure the dvd/bluray combo is on the way still haven't gotten it, but here's hoping its coming soon

    22. Creator Charles Bates on August 5

      Hey I wanted to tell you I still haven't got my blu-ray in the mail yet.

    23. Creator Jeff Jacobs on August 4

      Thanks for the quick reply. Just go it! Cant wait to watch this!

    24. Creator Jon Schnepp on August 4

      just sent yours off, Jeff, some people out of the thousands did not get a digital download. Doing my best to get them out.

    25. Creator Jeff Jacobs on August 4

      Still haven't gotten my download of the movie. I gave my info in the "blurays and DVDs shipping this week!" post 2 weeks ago. I understand you have a lot of work but sending a link shouldn't be this hard.

    26. Creator Jeff on August 2

      So first the dvd/blu rays were going to ship the week after Comicon, then it was by week's end the next week, then it was going to be shipped last week, now it's being manufactured now. Is there a REAL time frame we can expect them? Such a joke.

    27. Creator Jon Schnepp on August 2

      A few people have slipped throught the cracks, but I'm getting them sealed up! Dale, Jackie, sent off your downloads, sorry about the wait. All the kickstarter combo pack dvd/Blu-ray are being nmanufactured right now, with an all new cover!

    28. Creator Jeff on July 30

      Blurays get shipped yet?

    29. Creator Dale Turner on July 26

      FOURTH time I've written, and I've also sent an e-mail to Still no digital download. Feelin' warm and fuzzy!

      Hi there - where can I get my digital copy from? Can't see a link anywhere...

    31. Creator Grace8la on July 23

      Thank you very much! I just saw your response. My email is I look forward to seeing the digital download, and my kid is really excited about the blu-ray/DVD combo. Best wishes and congrats! We have heard very nice comments on your film.

    32. Creator DIRK on July 21

      Watched last night. Well done, really enjoyed it. How do we get to view the extra content?

    33. Creator Jon Schnepp on July 19

      People who contributed for the digital Download reward at $25 should have gotten their download, those who less and want to see the film can go to to get the download or bluray. We are currently getting the special edition kickstarter made up and ready to ship at weeks end. Thanks again for your patience, these are all combo blu/dvds, so they are taking a bit longer. I have sent out digital downloads to all those who who somehow did not get it. Thanks again everybody

    34. Creator jay reason on July 19

      I still have not gotten the email, I emailed you

    35. Creator Robert E on July 18

      I gave you my name an email. Still no digital download.

    36. Creator David Spear on July 18

      Finally got around to watching this tonight. I can't imagine the Superman film actually being good, but it was pretty interesting to see all the people involved and get their thoughts and memories on what could have been. Awesome job, thanks for making it happen.

    37. Creator Syncorizon on July 17


      I saw your response and sent you my email address to the, but alas, have yet to receive any link to a digital download. Granted, you're likely busy and I may have sent it to the wrong place, so please, I can be reached at

    45. Creator Jonathon Miller on July 14

      Hi Jon,

      As per the reply on VHX, please correct the spelling of my name to "Jonathon Miller" (rather than "Jonathan Miller" as it currently is credited) for the next press of the blu-ray/DVDs.


    46. Creator Tom on July 14

      Er, did you delete my comment?

      Again - I have not received the DL email. The email from the other day said 'respond' but it didn't say where. Short of posting my email address on a public forum, what am I supposed to do?

    47. Creator Tyler Horlings on July 14

      My name is Tyler Horlings and I did not get an email to download the film. I too am also looking forward to the blu ray.

    48. Creator Will Rodriguez on July 14

      I never got a download link for the digital. If that could be resent that would be great. Also, I'm looking forward to the blu Ray

    49. Creator Antony Eadie on July 14

      I spotted my name is misspelt in the end credits. When I messaged I was told to leave a comment on here and it'll get sorted on the next press. I absolutely loved the doc and I'm glad I was a backer.

    50. Creator Grace8la on July 14

      I'm looking forward to seeing the documentary, but alas no email for the digital download. Any assistance is appreciated!
