Nicolas Cage To Voice Superman In "Teen Titans Go!" Movie

Nicolas Cage To Voice Superman In

He was also infamously attached to Tim Burton's Superman Lives, which has become one of the most infamous unmade comic book movies of all time.

The upcoming animated film has other big-name voice talent, including pop star Halsey as Wonder Woman, rapper Lil Yachty as Green Lantern, and Kristin Bell as Jade Wilson.

Twenty years ago, Oscar-winner (and today internet favourite) Nicolas Cage was so close to becoming the next Man of Steel.

The meta-loving folks running Teen Titans GO! never turn down an opportunity to make a joke referencing the state of the superhero in popular entertainment.

The movie will be in theaters July 27. Given the nature of the source material, Cage's Superman won't be the hero as he appears in DC's comic book universe.

Forecast: Warm and windy today in the Omaha area
Look for partly to mostly sunny skies, with breezy conditions and temperatures only getting up into the cooler 40s again. The advisory lasts from 11 a.m.to 11 p.m. when winds could gust up to 50 miles per hour in some parts of the valley.

This is just the latest in a series of exciting casting announcements regarding the animated film. That said, he's clearly always had an affection for the character, once owning a $2.1 million copy of the Superman debut Action Comics #1, and going so far as to name his son Kal-El after the Kryptonian's birth name.

The dreams - memes - are finally coming true for Nicolas Cage.

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! The real stars are Robin (Scott Menville), Starfire (Hynden Walch), Raven (Tara Strong), Cyborg (Khary Payton), and Beast Boy (Greg Cipes). Cage fared much better playing Big Daddy in Kick-Ass, where he channelled Adam West's Batman as a crazed vigilante. Speaking to USA Today, the film's executive producer Sam Register described the "great responsibility" the team felt when filling out their cameo cast.

Warners Bros. describes the movie as "a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers".
