Nicolas Cage to Voice Superman in "Teen Titans GO!" Animated Movie

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

Nicolas Cage was set to star in Tim Burton's Superman Lives in the '90s, but the film famously fell apart. A singer named Halsey will be Wonder Woman, a rapper named Lil Yachty will play Green Lantern, and a renowned spoon-player named Nicolas Cage will play Superman.

Warner Bros. Animation announced this week that Cage will voice Superman in a cameo role for the upcoming Teen Titans Go! movie. 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. 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.

Cage's enthusiasm for the granddaddy of all comic-book superheroes is well known. Instead, this Man of Steel will be filtered through the ridiculous prism of the Teen Titans' cartoonish world. That stunt casting makes us wonder who will voice the rest of the Justice League in this film. It is a very good movie and Cage is a great actor.
