They all failed, but no actor has come as close to getting their dream comic book movie shot as Nicolas Cage, who has long-harboured dreams of playing Superman.

The film is being written and directed by former Navy SEAL Jason Cabell, and sees Cage leading a cast that includes Laurence Fishburne (Ant-Man and the Wasp), Leslie Bibb (The Babysitter), Barry Pepper (Maze Runner: The Death Cure), Adam Goldberg (Fargo), Clifton Collins Jr.

It's been officially announced that the beloved childhood show Teen Titans Go! 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! It was not until years later that director Bryan Singer stepped forward with Superman Returns (2006) but without the inclusion of Cage.

Having moved through pre-production with a script and casting all wrapped up, the film was cancelled just before shooting started - leaving Nicholas and his infamous Superman skinsuit on the comic book crossover trash heap. It's a unusual move, but it should be noted that he is a massive Superman fan and even named his son Kal-El.

Though DC's recent live-action films have all been maligned by critics (excepting only Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman), the company's offerings for children have possessed more of the earnest, positive messaging memorable from most Superman comics.

No one wants anything more than Nicolas Cage wants to be Superman.

Thanks to the upcoming "Teen Titans Go! So we felt a great responsibility to find a voice for each character that would not only suit the role, but the playful tone of the Titans, and we're thrilled with our cameo cast".
