Nicolas Cage Cast As Superman In Teen Titans Go Movie

Furious at this injustice, he takes the other Titans to Hollywood in the hopes of getting them the big-screen treatment they deserve. And now, in what is perhaps the greatest casting joke/cameo in superhero history (sorry, Stan Lee), they've gotten Nicolas Cage to be their Superman. We say "again" because the actor was tapped to play the iconic DC Comics character in Tim Burton's Superman Lives, the 1998 film that never was.

"It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies-everyone but the Teen Titans, that is".

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.

Nicolas Cage, Halsey, and Lil Yachty have been cast as Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern, respectively, in Warner Bros. But now fans will finally get a glimpse of Cage's take on Superman, as the actor is set to voice the Man Of Steel in the upcoming Teen Titans Go! The candy-colored animated flick is geared toward a younger audience, and looks to make light of all the cinematic superhero darkness we've come to expect. My interest in this project has increased considerably based on his casting alone. While his live-action portrayal never hit theaters, fans have been plenty intrigued by it, as various photos and interviews even spawned a documentary about what happened to it.

Teen Titans GO! to the Movies stars 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 and Kristen Bell as Jade Wilson.

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". If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them.
