Nicolas Cage will finally be Superman, thanks to 'Teen Titans Go! to the Movies'
Singer Halsey will voice Wonder Woman, while rapper Lil Yachty will lend his voice to Green Lantern.
There is a running joke in Hollywood - or maybe it is just 'Saturday Night Live' - that Nicolas Cage is in every movie you can ever think of. Except, of course, he was not in a very crucial one, Tim Burton’s 'Superman Lives,' in which he was pegged to play the titular superhero.
Unfortunately, the project was shelved and although Nick took solace in the fact that, "the movie that Tim and I would have made, in your imagination, is more powerful than any of the Superman movies," we would have loved to see him as the caped superhero of Metropolis. Now, we will finally get to see him, thanks to the upcoming Teen Titans movie.
Nick has been confirmed to be the voice of Superman in the 'Teen Titans Go! to the Movies.' Meanwhile, singer/songwriter Halsey will lend her voice to Amazon princess Wonder Woman and rapper Lil Yachty to Green Lantern in the animation film which is set to hit theaters on July 27.
"Every superhero in the DC Universe has an impact on the fans, 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," executive producer Sam Register related to US Today regarding their choices for the new superhero cameos.
The film is expected to be very meta, with Batman sidekick Robin (Scott Menville), alien warrior Starfire (Hynden Walch), half-demon Raven (Tara Strong), human/android hybrid Cyborg (Khary Payton) and shapeshifter Beast Boy (Greg Cipes) approaching a hotshot Hollywood director – voiced by Kristen Bell – with hopes of getting their big break in showbiz.
Even as Teen Titans in the small screen is awaiting their big screen debut, their comic book universe versions are also getting revamped. Adam Glass, who wrote for 'Suicide Squad' during the "New 52"-era, is returning to DC comics after a five-year-gap, a new one-shot, Teen Titans Special #1.
From the artwork that has been released for the series, it looks like Damian Wayne (Robin), Wally West (Kid Flash), and Emiko Queen (Red Arrow) have taken over the mantle from their respective mentors Batman, The Flash and Green Arrow.
We can't wait to see the journeys of both versions of the Teen Titans.
