‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ Producer Hints At Reaching Out To Nicolas Cage For Superman Return

The upcoming Crisis On Infinite Earths Arrowverse crossover may have had even more ambitious plans as one of its producers teased that he reached out to Nicolas Cage to play a version of Superman.

During a Twitter exchange, a fan jokingly called for Crisis on Infinite Earths producer Marc Guggenheim to include Nicolas Cage’s version of Superman before jokingly calling him a coward. He responded by asking the fan why he thought that they didn’t reach out:

Nicolas Cage was, of course, cast to play Superman in the ill-fated film Superman Lives. The film was set to be directed by Tim Burton and would have been based primarily on The Death and Return of Superman story arc. The film sadly ran into financing problems after Warner Bros. lost faith in the project due in no small part to the underperformance of 1997’s Batman and Robin. Nicolas Cage would ultimately only play Superman once in the Teen Titans Go! To the Movies film but never played the character in live-action. But based on what Marc Guggenheim is saying, he may have wanted Nicolas Cage for Crisis on Infinite Earths!

What do you all make of these comments? Would you like to have seen Nicolas Cage in Crisis on Infinite Earths? Do you think Crisis on Infinite Earths already has too many Superman characters? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Crisis On Infinite Earths will span two quarters and consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The Arrowverse crossover will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January.

In addition to the regular cast members of each Arrowverse series, Crisis will also feature appearances by Tyler Hoechlin as Superman, Brandon Routh as Clark Kent/Superman and Ray Palmer/The Atom, LaMonica Garrett as the Anti-Monitor, Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor, Tom Cavanagh as Pariah, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Cress Williams as Black Lightning, Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne, Johnathon Schaech as Jonah Hex, Erica Durance as Lois Lane, Tom Welling as Clark Kent / Superman, Ashley Scott Will as Huntress, and Burt Ward in an undisclosed role.

Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business.
