Cage as Supes?!

09.22.2009

I cannot vouch for the below video and its authenticity but it claims to be a bunch of art from Tim Burton's time developing SUPERMAN LIVES at Warner Bros. The first piece of art seems very clearly Burton's style (or at least someone mimicking his style) while the next two are more polished studio-style concept art drawings. The final money shot is a pic allegedly showing Nicolas Cage doing one of his costume tests. The hair would seem to matchup with when the test took place (in the late-90s when Cage was filming CON AIR) but again, this could just be a clever Photoshop. That said, if it is real....WHOA. Bullet dodged. Check it out below!

UPDATE - Another video has been posted that has some shots of Burton's design for Braniac. Or some kind of Braniac/spider hybrid...

Extra Tidbit: I'm pretty sure this is a fake but I got a good laugh out of it...

I saw the pic at IGN (can't see youtube at work), but the pic has a cape. It's been awhile since I saw An Evening w/ Kevin Smith, but I remember him saying something of "no cape".
Looks pretty bad if it's real, though.

kevin smith script notes

smith was forced by the studios to incorporate specific and ludicrous things, so dont judge him based on the ideas in the script-- I know for a fact he was told superman had to fight a giant spider, and that he couldnt fly.... I believe these ideas eventually morphed into smallville (the no flying thing specifically)

AMAZING

I REALLY think this is real. It looks legit man. And how else would they have expected Cage to wear his hair?? Short and balding looking?? It makes sense. Oh my god this is so funny, this coulda been good who the hell knows. I'm a fan of Supes Returns AND I think Routh was great and is great. [link]

What ever

don't know if this is true but didn't Cage refuse to do Superman because when he showed up dressed in the costume, everybody started laughing. By looking at that last pic, I would tend to agree :)

Authentic? I don't know but seeing that last picture was completely worth the watch. Hilarious. And for those who don't know the whole story behind this, check out Kevin Smith's Superman story on youtube.
