Is he up for it?
Nicolas Cage has responded to online calls for him to play Superman.
Last month, a campaign for Cage to portray the Man of Steel gained momentum after the reported departure of Henry Cavill.
The actor is known to be a huge Superman fan and famously named his son Kal-El, the birth name of the comic hero on his home planet Krypton.
Posting on Twitter, one fan wrote: “With Henry Cavill out, there’s only one person who can save the DCEU and it’s Nicolas Cage as Superman, finally.”
Now, Cage has responded to the idea – but he’s a lot keener on tackling another role in the Superman universe.
Meanwhile, Cage revealed his fears that memes could ruin new horror movie Mandy.
The cult actor has become a beloved figure online in recent years – leading to a phenomenon dubbed “Cage Rage” that sees clips of the actor being placed in out-of-context scenarios.
