Flash – director revealed a giant spoiler. A famous actor in an absolutely (un)shocking role!
WARNING: THE TEXT CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Production director Flash, Andy Muschietti, in an interview with Esquire Middle East dropped a real bomb, revealing a giant spoiler related to the upcoming production based on DC comics. Although lovers of the world of superheroes already have great reasons to be satisfied with the casting and are getting ready to see on the screen Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton in the roles of two different versions of Batman, their performances may be overshadowed by a cameo that absolutely no one expected. Ladies and gentlemen! In Flash Nicolas Cage will also play… Superman!
Muschietti has not revealed any details about Cage’s role other than the fact that it is supposed to be a guest appearance. The director praises his work with the legendary actor:
Nick was absolutely wonderful. Although his role is just a cameo, he completely immersed himself in it … All my life I dreamed of working with him. Hopefully I’ll be able to do it again soon. (…) He’s a big Superman fan, a real comic fanatic.
Say that Nicholas Cage is a fan of the Superman character, it’s actually nothing to say. We’re talking about an actor who named his son Kal-El and had a comic book in his private collection Action Comics #1 from 1938 – the same in which Man of Steel debuted (the issue was stolen in 2000, only to be found 11 years later – it was sold at auction for USD 2.16 million, which made it the most expensive comic book in the world at the time).
In 1996, Cage won the audition for the role of the Man of Steel in the show Superman Livesfor which he wrote the screenplay Kevin Smithwhich he was supposed to direct himself Tim Burton. The development of this project, after numerous battles between the creators and the producers and studio owners, was finally completed 2 years later.
