For years, we have heard about the “Superman” movie Tim Burton was gearing up to direct. And the most surprising (or disturbing) aspect has always been his choice for the Man of Steel: Nic Cage.
Anyone who knows anything about Superman can tell you Cage is flat-out wrong for the role.
We have heard about the test screenings in which Cage supposedly had taken part. However, we have never seen any actual pictures of Cage in the Superman suit … until now … maybe.
In what www.TimBurton.jp is calling an exclusive, a shot purportedly of Cage as Superman has surfaced. If the monstrosity that is this picture was not already staring at you from the top of this page, I would describe it to you. But obviously, there is no need. This is a picture that is actually worth 1,00 words — and none of them are pleasant.
Now, there is every chance this picture is a fake. In fact, in the brief You Tube clip below, you will see a concept design for the movie’s suit and you will notice it is much different than the costume Cage is wearing.
I don’t know whether Cage’s hair is long for this role or if it was long for another role. I don’t know whether this picture is real or if it’s Cage’s head photoshopped onto an action figure. All I know is that everyone of us can consider ourselves lucky that this version movie never made it to the big screen.
