In the 1990s, Nicolas Cage was cast as Superman by Batman director Tim Burton for his next movie, Superman Lives. The project was pretty far along in pre-production, but ended up being canceled.
Earlier this month at New York Comic-Con in the press room, Batman vs. Two-Face writer Michael Jelenic revealed that he pitched an idea of making a Superman Lives animated movie to Warner Bros.
“I had a big pitch, and they took it seriously for a second,” Jelenic revealed, “to do Tim Burton’s Superman…to do that animated.”
“Nic Cage would do it,” a reporter said. “He would absolutely do it!” Jelenic added.
Who knows, maybe Warner Bros. will make this a reality one day. Would you like to see an animated version of Superman Lives? Let me know in the comments below.
