Nicolas Cage Talks About Superman Lives


Jon Schnepp’s “The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?” (expect review in the near future) has already been released and has had received great reviews overall.

However, the one area in which many fans were disappointed with, was seeing how enthusiastic Nicholas Cage appeared in the documentary through archive footage, we never got a chance to hear his recent thoughts on the film that once was, even Jon Schnepp and Producer Holly Payne mention throughout why Nicholas Cage refused to be apart of it, originally he was going to be on it, but all the Meme’s and jokes about his recent career choices scared him off the project.

Now Nicholas Cage, who was set to play Clark Kent/Superman in the Tim Burton directed film, has spoken up to Yahoo! a bit about how he feels on the film and what he thinks about what happened now.

There’s a new documentary about the Superman movie you almost made with Tim Burton. Your costume as the Man of Steel is quite something.
The only thing I’ll say about that — because that is such a lighting rod hot topic and if I say anything at all it just seems to snowball  — but I will say that I had great belief in that movie and in what Tim Burton’s vision was going to be for that movie. I would’ve loved to have seen it, but I feel that in many ways, it was sort of a win/win because of the power of the imagination. I think people can actually see the movie in their minds now and imagine it and in many ways that might resonate more deeply than the finished project.

People have really done a lot of imagining about how the film would have looked.
Tim is the total artist, a pure artist with a real vision, and I’ve often said that he can create worlds and that’s exactly what he does. I saw some of the tests of different characters and costumes for Krypton and they were just so surreal and so magical and beautiful. He’s definitely one of my favorite filmmakers because of his originality, because of his vision.
