In anticipation of the new Superman movie, I’ll bring up the little-known fact that Nicolas Cage was once cast for the part.

This was back in the 1990s. When I heard it, I could not imagine Cage doing the part. But recently, the test photos of him in the super suit surfaced. I can’t show you them without my blog violating copyright, but the New York Daily News shows them here.
For those who ask WHY? I’ll just say that Cage obviously didn’t think it beneath him to destroy the legend.
For better or worse, the new movie coming out has Henry Cavill, and he has the advantage of actually looking like Superman.
