Warner Bros. Animation announced this week that Cage will voice Superman in a cameo role for the upcoming Teen Titans Go! movie. The guy named his son Kal-El Coppola Cage for Superman's sake! He's been cast as the voice of the DC Comics hero in Teen Titans GO!
In Cartoon Network's feature-length Teen Titans Go! film-titled Teen Titans Go!
There has been footage of Cage's costume tests floating around the Internet for years, but that is as close as fans got to seeing that version of Superman, after the project fell apart in its early stages.
In the film, the Teen Titans are on a quest to find their big break in Hollywood, because like the trailer says "If Aquaman can get a movie, anyone can".More news: Renewable energy deals in jeopardy as union objects

That's right, Nicolas Cage has finally fulfilled his dream of playing Clark Kent and his heroic alter-ego. We haven't heard any clips yet of Cage as Superman, but we hope that happens soon. In addition to Cage, we have singer/songwriter Halsey in the role of Wonder Woman and rapper Lil Yachty as Green Lantern.
The role is a major coo for Cage who is a big fan of the DC Superhero, the actor was once in the running to play Superman in Superman Lives!, but the production run into trouble. The animated feature has been directed by Aaron Horvath, also the screenwriter, and will open in theaters on July 27, 2018.
Will Arnett (The Lego Batman Movie) and Kristen Bell (Frozen) are also confirmed to voice in the movie, along with the show's main cast with Scott Menville as Robin, Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Tara Strong as Raven, and Hynden Walch as Starfire.
Warners Bros. describes the movie as "a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers".
