Nicolas Cage Is Finally Getting The Chance To Play Superman (Sort Of)

Now, Cage has got his wish, somewhat, lending his voice to the Man of Steel himself.

It's an inspired move, because Nick Cage was originally cast as Superman in the 90's for a failed Tim Burton project.

The 2013 animated TV series is a follow-up to the popular Teen Titans that follows the ordinary lives of some of DC's favorite superheroes such as Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg that are constantly caught up in a string of comical situations.

Also making cameos in the the upcoming animated movie (hitting cinemas 27 July) that takes the young heroes of the Cartoon Network show Teen Titans GO! to the big screen are Halsey as Amazon princess Wonder Woman and rapper Lil Yachty as Green Lantern. Existing in the same continuity as their insane yet still active show on Cartoon Network, the Teen Titans find out that other DC superheroes seem to have films produced, so they seek out the flawless director for their debut on the big screen, but an old enemy has other ideas planned for them.

Nicolas Cage is a HUGE fan of Superman. Cage is a massive Superman fan and even named his son Kal-El, which, as all comics fans know, is the Man of Steel's Kryptonian birth name. "We felt a great responsibility to find a voice for each character that would not only suit the role, but the playful tone of the Titans, and we're thrilled with our cameo cast". Somehow, we think comic book blockbusters would be very different today if this movie had come to pass. That stunt casting makes us wonder who will voice the rest of the Justice League in this film.

Much like 2016's Lego Batman, Teen Titans Go! is more concerned with telling a story for children than it is with preserving DC's beloved comics canon, though both Chris McKay's film and Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic's cartoon are littered with in-jokes and references to unseen heroes and villains. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. Will Arnett, Peter Rida Michail and Peggy Regan are producing under Warner Bros.
