Nicolas Cage to Voice Superman in Teen Titans GO! Movie

Cage gave Superman's birth name to his own son, Kal-El Cage, and he was one of the few collectors to ever own a highly sought after copy of Action Comics #1, which was the first comic book appearance of the Man of Steel.

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

Threading the needle of total silliness with the right amount of fun isn't easy, but with Cage leading a group of Justice Leaguers including a Wonder Woman voiced by singer Halsey and a Green Lantern voiced by rapper Lil Yachty, there's no way to avoid either silliness or fun.


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 and two others have joined the Teen Titans movie cast. However, it's now confirmed that Cage will finally get to play Superman in a movie, but only in a voice role. We haven't heard any clips yet of Cage as Superman, but we hope that happens soon. For more on Cage's past attempts to play Superman, seek out the documentary The Death of Superman Lives, which is where the above image of Cage in costume comes from. The Go! franchise follows Robin (Scott Menville), Starfire (Hynden Watch), Raven (Tara Strong), Beast Boy (Greg Cipes) and Cyborg (The Walking Dead's Khary Payton) as they kill time between battling bad guys.

Although it will only be a cameo in the animated movie, Teen Titans GO! to the Movies, the Oscar-winning actor, 54, will appear as Superman - something he was slated to do back '90s. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!
