Surool: How many times is this story going to be posted as news?
MBK: Hearing Kevin Smith tell the story of the Superman movie that almost was (Superman was a "caged killer", no flying, no costume, huge SPIDER out of nowhere) is pretty amusing.

Bob The Nob: Thagarian Snare Beast?
browneye: I heard about this years ago and I still can't believe anyone was serious about Nicholas Cage being Superman. It sounds like something written in The Onion.
czetie: Is there any actor in Hollywood who is more disconnected in his self-image from what he's actually good at than Nic Cage? He so desperately wants to be an action hero, yet he's only slightly less goofy than Eugene Levy.The closest I can think of is Kevin Costner. He loves to make big, sweeping thematic epics like Waterworld, but he's so much better at small, intimate, intense stories like No Way Out. But even he's a distant second to the madness that is Nic Cage.
Jim from Saint Paul: Cage is Michael Caine 2.0He will literally do any movie for money.
Psychohazard: I don't understand all the hate for Nick Cage--imagine how bad ConAir would have been without him.
Captain Steroid: Man, Wesley Strick knew where to get the good drugs! :P
browneye: Only Tim Burton with his twisted, weird-for-the-sake-of-being- wierd, aesthetic would have thought this could work.
mcgreggers99: [www.downtheroadshow.com image 471x480]Yeah....no.... that wouldn't have worked.
B.L.Z. Bub: THAT PICTURE IS FAKE!!!!!!
browneye: Browneye: I heard about this years ago and I still can't believe anyone was serious about Nicholas Cage being Superman. It sounds like something written in The Onion.So did I. It seems weird now, but you have to remember,when that version of Superman was in the works, Nic Cage was fresh off an Academy Award win and had just starred in The Rock.For a time in 96-97, he was one of the most in-demand actors in Hollywood.Being in demand doesn't negate bad casting. Nicholas Cage looks nothing like Superman - body type, face, hair - everything is so wrong. And on top of everything else, he's not handsome. Only Tim Burton with his twisted, weird-for-the-sake-of-being- wierd, aesthetic would have thought this could work.
Solon Isonomia: Say what you want about whether he looks the part and whatnot, but there is no doubt the man just loves Supes. The guy is a massive fanboy - sometimes that's a a quality missing in superhero casting.
Tommy Moo: I read the headline as Nick Cave and though, huh... weird choice, but that would be kind of awesome.
