There is a new Man of Steel in town as comic book mega-fan Nicolas Cage is finally set to play Superman. USA Today reports that Cage, who was all set to play the A-list comic-book icon in Tim Burton’s cancelled ‘Superman Lives,’ will now lend his voice to the Last Son Of Krypton in the big screen outing of the hit Cartoon Network show ‘Teen Titans GO!’
Cage joins a voice cast that includes Scott Menville as Robin, Hynden Walch as Starfire, Tara Strong as Raven, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Will Arnett as Slade Wilson. Singer-songwriter Halsey will also lend her voice to the animated feature, playing Wonder Woman, with rapper Lil Yachty as Green Lantern.
Directed by Peter Rida Michail and Aaron Horvath, ‘Teen Titans Go! To The Movies’ finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers. It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get Jade Wilson (voice of Kristen Bell), the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them.
With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously super villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!
‘Teen Titans Go! To The Movies’ is released in Irish cinemas August 3rd.
