Nicolas Cage almost played Superman, and this piece of news is pretty old, going all the way back to the 1990s where it was supposed to be directed by Tim Burton. The title: Superman Lives. The sad part, which we all know, is that Nicolas never made it to the silver screen as the man of steel.

In a new documentary called The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, Kevin Smith, who was supposed to write the script said this:

“Now, when you think about it, if somebody was just like, ‘Would you like to see a Nic Cage Superman movie?’ I’d be like ‘Fuck’ and ‘Yes, take all my money, ’cause I want to see what that looks like.'”

Too bad it never happened.

Here's some footage:
