Nicolas Cage Will Finally Play Superman in TEEN TITANS GO TO THE MOVIES

Nicolas Cage has never been shy about his Superman fandom. Cage gave Superman’s birth name to his own son, Kal-El Cage, and he was one of the few collectors to ever own a highly sought after copy of Action Comics #1, which was the first comic book appearance of the Man of Steel. Two decades ago, Cage was even lined up to star in Tim Burton‘s Superman Lives movie, before the project ultimately fell apart. But now, Cage is finally going to get his chance to portray the Last Son of Krypton, and not in the way anyone expected!

Via USA Today, Cage will lend his voice to Superman in Teen Titans Go to the Movies, the big screen spinoff of Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans GO! series. Given the nature of the source material, Cage’s Superman won’t be the hero as he appears in DC’s comic book universe. Instead, this Man of Steel will be filtered through the ridiculous prism of the Teen Titans’ cartoonish world.

Cage won’t be the only celebrity voice actor for the Teen Titans GO! movie, either. Earlier this week, the singer Halsey joined the cast as Wonder Woman, while rapper Lil Yachty signed on to play Green Lantern. That stunt casting makes us wonder who will voice the rest of the Justice League in this film.

This clip from The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? shows a glimpse of what might have been, as Cage put on an early costume from the film alongside Burton and a few others. Somehow, we think comic book blockbusters would be very different today if this movie had come to pass.

Are you glad to see Cage get his chance to be super? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
