Nicolas Cage To Voice Superman In 'Teen Titans GO! To The Movies'

"It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies-everyone but the Teen Titans, that is". And now, in what is perhaps the greatest casting joke/cameo in superhero history (sorry, Stan Lee), they've gotten Nicolas Cage to be their Superman.

Threading the needle of total silliness with the right amount of fun isn't easy, but with Cage leading a group of Justice Leaguers including a Wonder Woman voiced by singer Halsey and a Green Lantern voiced by rapper Lil Yachty, there's no way to avoid either silliness or fun.

In the latest bit of news to be filed under "better late than never", none other than Nicolas Cage has been confirmed to voice Superman in the upcoming animated flick Teen Titans Go!

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies is set to open in theaters on July 27, 2018, and will be directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail, from a screenplay by Michael Jelenic and Horvath. Will Arnett, already a veteran of animated DC Comics adaptations in the role of Batman in the Lego films, will voice Robin's nemesis, Deathstroke. While the film primarily focuses on the young members of the Teen Titans - Robin, Beast Boy, Cyborg, Raven and Starfire - some adult heroes will pop up as well.

DC's live-action movies have succumbed to doom and gloom lately, but Teen Titans Go to the Movies might reverse all that. That ultimately never made it to the big screen, but he'll finally have the chance to suit up in animation (via USA Today).

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies will be the first theatrical release based on a Warner Bros. animated series since 1993's Mask of the Phantasm, based on Batman: The Animated Series. But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. Believe it or not, the studio pulled the plug on that one just days before shooting was set to commence, making it one of the hottest pieces of trivia in superhero film history, with even a documentary about it having been produced in the time since.
