Nicolas Cage believes his chances of playing Superman should actor Henry Cavill's exit be confirmed are low - almost non-existent. But he's got another idea for how to get involved.
“Oh, I think my Superman days are long gone,” Cage told The Guardian. Cage was previously cast as Superman in Superman Returns, a film which was developed with director Tim Burton but never produced. Cage ended up voicing Superman in Warner Bros. Animation's Teen Titans Go! to the Movies.
However, Cage believes he's got a shot at another role in the film: Superman's arch-enemy Lex Luthor.
“Oh, that would be great!" Cage agreed after the idea was suggested. " I’d make a great Lex Luthor!”
Cavill reportedly exited the role of Superman earlier this year, though his departure has not been confirmed.
