The news that the actor, Henry Cavill will not be playing the role of the epic DC superhero has now been dominating most conversations as of now, but one actor’s name keeps coming to mind to fill Cavill’s shoes- Nicolas Cage.
It does make sense because the actor is a huge Superman fan, and he named his son, Kal-El and was also very close to having played this role in a movie. Cage has played Superman on the silver screen in the animation movie; Teen Titans GO To The Movies.
The Superman project had been titled as Superman Reborn and had an aim to take on the Death of Superman storyline. While it had started under taking shape with Jon Peters and the writer Jonathan Lemkin, it changed hands, and the script had been rewritten by Kevin Smith and was to be helmed by Tim Burton.
“The only thing I’ll say about that — because that is such a lighting rod hot topic and if I say anything at all it just seems to snowball — but I will say that I had great belief in that movie and in what Tim Burton’s vision was going to be for that movie,” Cage had said.
The I would’ve loved to have seen it, but I feel that in many ways, it was sort of a win/win because of the power of the imagination. I think people can actually see the movie in their minds now and imagine it and in many ways that might resonate more deeply than the finished project.”
1. ONE MAN FOR THE JOB
All the fans had appreciated Henry Cavill’s Superman, but if there they need someone else to take over the Superman mantle, it has to be Nicolas Cage.
“With Henry Cavill out as Superman, there is only ONE man who can fill the role: Nic Cage.”
2. DO IT COWARDS
Even if one really wants to do something different from the red, blue, and yellow, Cage is still the man who can do this.
3. IN THE MARKET
There seems to be an n opening for the role of Superman, and after with Cavill’s debut hitting in the movie, Man of Steel, it looks like Cage can get another chance.
4. TIME FOR CAGE
There is a void in the DCEU for the role of Superman, and only one man can do the trick and give us the best Superman-Nicolas Cage.
5. BLOWING UP MY CELL
Thankfully the voicemails do not use much data as Cage has had a ton to sift through after the big news that Cavill has left the role.
6. THE CAMPAIGN BEGINS
Roles like Superman do not come along very often and so, if a casting call were to be made, Cage should be the one to audition one more time.
7. TESTING THE SUIT
Most of the fun of a trend like this is to see all the GIFs that the fans had used for illustrating their point, and there are a lot to choose from now when it comes to Tim Burton and Nicolas Cage’s Superman movie.
8. A SECOND CHANCE
Most of the fans are not too happy that Cavill has left behind the Superman cape and a few are now approaching this as an opportunity to bring back Cage as the superhero.
9. BORN TO BE SUPERMAN
Cage sure does love Superman, and it makes a lot of sense to see a fan get a chance to take up the role of his hero.
10. THE SUPERMAN WE DESERVE
While there are a lot of fans who had enjoyed Cavill’s take on Superman, we cannot help but wonder what Nicolas Cage’s Superman film would have looked like.
