Nicolas Cage Lands Superman Role in "Teen Titans GO! to the Movies"

Tuesday, 13 Mar, 2018

"Teen Titans Go! To the Movies" is a feature-film version of the Cartoon Network DC Comics superhero show following the adventures of Teen Titans Robin, Cyborg, Starfire, Raven and Beast Boy. 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.

Now, what makes this particular round of casting special is that Cage had previously been enlisted to star as the Man of Tomorrow himself in Tim Burton's ill-fated Superman Lives back in the late 1990's.

Sorry you had to see that.

Cage is considered to be one of the most famous Superman fans in Hollywood. To the Movies-Cage will appear in a short voice-cameo as Superman opposite R&B star Lil Yachty as Green Lantern and popstar Halsey as Wonder Woman.

Nicolas Cage will voice the role of Superman in the upcoming Warner Bros. animated film, "Teen Titans GO! to the Movies".

Other Teen Titans Go to the Movies cast members include Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Tara Strong as Raven, Hynden Walch as Starfire, Will Arnett as Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke, Kristen Bell as Jade Wilson, and James Corden as everyone's favorite character, Balloon Man.

In Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, Robin realizes superheroes have received films before they have.

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". 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. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream.
