The output of henry cavill What Superman in James Gunn’s new DC Extended Universe has been a real stick for many fans of the franchise. However, the community does not stand still and they have already found the perfect substitute to put on the Man of Steel’s cape and who was close to signing to make a movie of the character: Nicolas Cage.
As many people know, the legendary American actor was about to participate in a Superman movie directed by Tim Burton call Superman Lives, a work that never came to light due to the nonsense that was becoming after a year of production. With this trailer made by Lazy Droid Studio we have been able to discover how the work of the dark director would have ended.
And it is that superhero movies during the 90s were not profitable at all and the vast majority of productions were a huge failure until the arrival of Bladewhich completely changed superhero cinema and saved Marvel Studios of bankruptcy.
That is why, thinking about it now, why not try it this time with Nicolas Cage? While it is true that the next Man of Steel movie will focus on his youth and first steps as a superheroit would not be unreasonable to think of a more adult version of Superman with Cage as the protagonist.
