UNEARTHED: Test Footage Of Nicolas Cage as Superman

Back in the 90’s, DC Comics and Warner Bros. wanted to re-boot the Superman franchise, and for a blink-and-you-missed-it moment, Nicolas Cage was officially on board to play him (with Tim Burton directing). Nic is famously obsessed with Superman (he literally named his son Kal-El, Superman’s birth name), so he very much wanted to do the movie. Now some old footage of Nic in costume has emerged, and it begs the question: would America have been on-board with a Superman that wears a deep v-neck?

WATCH the first full trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Warner Bros. released it early after it was leaked. Though I remain skeptical that the leak wasn’t planned to give it some free press to take attention away from the new Star Wars trailer that dropped last week.

My near-epic failure of a Superman costume was saved

Tonight I’m dressing as Superman Prime, which is essentially the regular Superman uniform but black and silver rather than blue and red.  I special ordered it from Hong Kong to get the size right because I’m elfin.  The costume fit, but something was just… off.  Oh yeah, that Superman S looks nothing like an S!  That would seem important!  THANKFULLY, one of my best friends happens to be a kick-ass big-deal costume designer, and he was able to fix it by cutting new pieces from the bottom of my cape.  MORAL OF THE STORY: find yourself a friend who’s a costume designer. 

BTW, feel free to go ahead and subscribe to my blog, reblog, and/or share on Facebook and Twitter, thx!
