Nicolas Cage will play Superman in Teen Titans Go! to the Movies

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!

In the late 1990's Cage was expected to portray superman for director Tim Burton but in an unfortunate turn of events the project in the making was scrapped to the side.

Cage will voice Superman in Teen Titans Go! 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 ideal director for their debut on the big screen, but an old enemy has other ideas planned for them.

Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern are only side characters in the Teen Titans Go! movie.

Having moved through pre-production with a script and casting all wrapped up, the film was cancelled just before shooting started - leaving Nicholas and his infamous Superman skinsuit on the comic book crossover trash heap.

Cage is a big-time Superman fan.

Executive producer Sam Register told USA Today that the filmmakers "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". 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.

And then we have Nic Cage, who - well, I have no idea why they selected him for this role. The Death of "Superman Lives": What Happened?

Other actors who make up the all-star cast are Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Hynden Walch as Starfire, Greg Cipes as Beast Boy and Tara Strong as Raven, also joined by Will Arnett.

"It seems to the Teens that all major superheroes out there are star in their own movies-everyone but the Teen Titans, that is". The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!
