Love Kevin Smith. Have to say he would have probably written a great script. Though John Peters would have ruined it, he sounds like a f**king maniac.

Have to say, much prefer Chris Nolan`s more `realistic`, and darker, take on The Batman. Penguin, a mutant? fellt like Burton was selling out to all that magicy bull, just cause it`s a comic .

@walk-in: I agree. Schumacher made it worse, but Burton set it on the path to horrible.

"Nic Cage would make an AWESOME Kal-El though."
I also think Cage would look good as an aging Superman yet, when I first heard his name associated with the project, my first thought was "the voice should be looped by someone else."

Superman with hints of Florida/Louisiana dialect?
Don`t do it.

Why is everyone so amazed at the Nickolas Cage mannequin? It is Nicholas Cage, it is a face casting. So they can see what the outfit actually looks like.
If you did not watch the video at the bottom of the page, you missed one of the best posts on IAB.

I personally don`t see Cage working well as Superman, agree that Smith would be great to work on with Superman (though I`m happy with the current production team that`s been announced), and agree that Batman Returns was not that great, but it was not the worst thing that ever happened either. True, Catwoman`s origin was terrible and the Penguin is not a mutant, but at least he didn`t give Batman nipples or have Batman click his heels to produce ice-skates from his boots like Schumacher did.

@Walk-In:

Batman returns was a freaking turd man.

The Penguin is not a freaking penguin. He wasn`t a mutant orphan. He was a multi-billionaire mastermind that wore tuxedos. That`s the only reason he was called the "Penguin".

Also, the Catwoman origin was screwed up BADLY.

Watch the video on that page with Kevin Smith. If there is ANYONE in Hollywood qualified to write Superman, it`s him, and Tim Burton fired him.

Fail.

Nic Cage would make an AWESOME Kal-El though.

While I hate this outfit and the thought of Nick Cage as Superman, I wouldn`t go so far to say Tim Burton ruins franchises, and he certainly didn`t ruin Batman. Before his Batman movie was the Adam West crap. Burton only did Batman and Batman Returns, both decent in their own right and for the late 80`s and early 90`s. Joel Schumacher ruined Batman (Batman Forever and Batman & Robin).

Nic Cage Superman Screen Test:

Kinda reminds me of those rubber style suits used in that mid 90`s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie..

FAIL! Tim Burton destroys franchises. He did Batman, and he would have done it to Superman as well.

The article wasn`t clear, but maybe Nick Cage was going to be the villain (Brainiac ?). As bad as this looks, it couldn`t be any worse than any of the previous Superman Movies. Whomever is in control of this franchise needs to take a clue from Marvel.

BTW the Clip of Kevin Smith at the bottom of the article is worth watching, its better than the article.

This would not have "been so cool!"

Tim Burton cannot make action movies. I had to study `Batman Returns` last year and it was absolute hell.
