Nicolas Cage Says "Superman Lives" Would Have Been "Really Special"

Posted: March 21st, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Nicolas Cage Says "Superman Lives" Would Have Been "Really Special"Submit Comment
Back in 1998, Tim Burton was set to direct a brand new Superman movie, called "Superman Lives." Nicolas Cage was attached to star, Kevin Smith wrote the script, and Warner Bros threw millions of dollars at the project before killing it due to budget concerns.

Now while promoting "The Croods," Nicolas Cage spoke about the film stating he was excited to make the movie, but is also happy that it didn't get made. "I do think that I had the win-win situation, because that character is such a bullseye that you have to hit," he said. "He's one of the most precious icons of our country."

Cage continued: "The fact that Tim and I were pretty far down the road designing ['Superman Lives'], and I know that with Tim and where I was going to go, we would have done something really special."

And even though the film never got made, Cage is glad that it has become part of Superman's cinematic history. "It's still interesting to people," he added.

What if this movie had actually been made and somehow succeeded? With Burton having already made the first two Batman movies, which were far superior to the next two, could he have become Christopher Nolan before Christopher Nolan in regards to DC superhero movies?

What would things look like today?

Scary.

"It's still interesting to people," he added.


No, idiot, it's interesting to YOU, and possibly Alex, but no one else. No one cares, so stop living in the past wherein you would have played the worst Superman ever conceived, the worst Superman conceivable.

Can't believe I ever thought Nic Cage was a "cool" actor.
