Nicholas Cage was once set to play Superman in Tim Burton’s Superman Lives. While that film was canceled during production, Superman would come back to the big screen a few years later with Superman Returns and then be rebooted once more with Man of Steel and go on to have serveral appearances including 2017’s Justice League. Cage was once very excited to play Superman as its his favorite character(he even has a son named Kal-El), but now he’s singing a bit of a different tune.
Variety got a chance to sit with Cage at Sundance and asked him if he still sees himself playing Superman. Cage’s reply was a very simple “No, not at all”. They also asked Cage if he saw the most recent Superman flick, Justice League and Cage had this to say:
I did. I thought it was fun. That’s all I’m going to say.
