On the eve of the release of the film The Unbearable Weight of a Great Talent, in which Nicolas Cage will play a difficult role – himself, the actor gave a long interview to The Rolling Stones.
Cage admitted that he could become the main character in a Superman movie from director Tim Burton. The project was developed in the 90s, but was never completed. The actor noted Burton’s talent as an artist after seeing his sketches for the film.
The The Rock star also commented on fan fantasies of himself as Superman in the Batman universe.
“It would certainly be interesting. I just wish I could see those giant spiders that the directors were talking about and I saw some of Tim’s drawings. He is such a gifted artist in terms of painting. They were amazingly beautiful,” Cage admitted.
