During an interview with Esquire Middle EastDirector of “The Flash”, Andy Muschiettirevealed that Nicolas Cage will make a cameo in the film as Superman.
It’s a shocking and complete moment for fans of comic book movies and Cage, who was involved in the failed “Superman Lives” of Tim Burton 25 years ago.
“Nic was absolutely wonderful,” she said. Muschietti. “Even though the role was a cameo, he was immersed in it…I’ve dreamed of working with him my whole life. I look forward to working with him again soon.”
“He is a huge Superman fan. A comic book fan.”added Muschetti.
Cage fans know that his love for Superman runs deep. He not only planned to play the superhero in Burton’s failed project, but even named his son Kal-El, a reference to the name Superman on his home planet, Krypton. It remains to be seen how Cage’s Superman influences the plot of “The Flash”.

After launching the Batman film franchise for Warner Bros, Tim Burton turned his attention to Superman in 1998 with the development of “Superman Lives”. The movie was written by kevin smith and focused on Superman’s fight against Doomsday.
“He was more of an ’80s Superman with long black samurai hair,” Cage recently told Variety of his failed attempt at Superman. “I thought he was going to be a very different Superman, sort of emo, but we never got there.”
During the same interview, Cage said, “I don’t need to be in the MCU, I’m Nic Cage.” He may not need the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Cage has finally come full circle on his 25-year wait to join the DC Universe.
