This comes 20 years after Cage was first set to play Superman in the scrapped Superman Lives film.
Although it will only be a cameo in the animated movie, Teen Titans GO! to the Movies, the Oscar-winning actor, 54, will appear as Superman - something he was slated to do back '90s. Hopefully, he will be granted a big screen comeback sometime soon, especially when audiences finally get a taste of his take on Superman in Teen Titans GO! Sadly the project never came to life as it was cancelled three weeks before filming.
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies will be the second theatrical release based on a Warner Bros. animated series in more than two decades. Adding Cage to the cast as Superman, however, is a masterstroke.
Cage joins a voice cast that includes Scott Menville as Robin, Hynden Walch as Starfire, Tara Strong as Raven, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Will Arnett as Slade Wilson. He also named his son Kal-El, Superman's birth name, and once was the owner of a rare issue of Superman's 1938 comic debut, according to USA Today.
While reactions to the Teen Titans GO! That stunt casting makes us wonder who will voice the rest of the Justice League in this film. Cage fared much better playing Big Daddy in Kick-Ass, where he channelled Adam West's Batman as a crazed vigilante. It was laughable. But now, finally, Nick Cage, who is a huge Superman fan, will be able to portray the Man Of Steel in an intentionally comedic turn.
"Every superhero in the DC Universe has an impact on the fans", the film's executive producer, Sam Register, told USA Today.
The new feature-length adventure spun from Warner Bros.
With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream.
