It's a Bird…It's a Plane…It's Officially Nicolas Cage As Superman

And now, in what is perhaps the greatest casting joke/cameo in superhero history (sorry, Stan Lee), they've gotten Nicolas Cage to be their Superman.

While Cage never got to play his favorite hero on the big screen, USA Today reports that he will voice Superman in the upcoming animated film Teen Titans GO! Along the way, they will encounter other superheroes like Superman, Wonder Woman (Halsey) and Green Lantern (Lil Yachty).

Cage will voice Superman in Teen Titans Go! Existing in the same continuity as their insane yet still active show on Cartoon Network, the Teen Titans find out that other DC superheroes seem to have films produced, so they seek out the ideal director for their debut on the big screen, but an old enemy has other ideas planned for them. Animation/DC Entertainment's hit comedy cartoon Teen Titans GO! follows Robin (Scott Menville), Starfire (Hynden Walch), Raven (Tara Strong), Cyborg (Khary Payton) and Beast Boy (Greg Cipes) as they set out to make sure they are not left out of the big superhero blockbuster movie craze!

Trims Position in Amazon.com, Inc
As per Tuesday, December 22, the company rating was maintained by Macquarie Research. (NYSE:GRUB) rating on Monday, September 18. State Board of Administration of Florida Retirement System increased its position in Amazon .com by 0.5% in the second quarter.

Cage is arguably the most famous Superman fan in Hollywood (maybe the world), and was supposed to get his big chance to play the character in Tim Burton's ill-fated movie, Superman Lives.

Much like 2016's Lego Batman, Teen Titans Go! is more concerned with telling a story for children than it is with preserving DC's beloved comics canon, though both Chris McKay's film and Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic's cartoon are littered with in-jokes and references to unseen heroes and villains. He was once the owner of a near-pristine copy of Superman's 1938 debut Action Comics #1 (later sold for $2.16 million) and infamously gave the name Kal-El to his son with Alice Kim - the Kryptonian character's birth name. But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. "The team finds their and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line".
