Tim Burton’s aborted mid-1990s flick Superman Lives has taken on a mythical status among fans, and now would-be star Nicolas Cage has opened up about why it didn’t happen.
Forget Henry Cavill, Nic Cage is still the man we all want to see wearing the red and blue.
Some 15 years later, it's safe to say we'll never see the Tim Burton/Kevin Smith/Nic Cage flick Superman Lives. But that doesn't mean we can't see its documentary.
These days, Nicholas Cage is known for his over-the-top performances. He has an energy that no one can touch, and he brought his superhero A game to Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. If you thought his acting in the movie was insane, you should see what was left on the cutting room floor.
According to Nicolas Cage, who sat down with us to talk about his upcoming film Ghost Rider : Spirit of Vengeance, "If you play a character called Ghost Rider, you have to provide some horror."
Ever since a Civil War era photo showing a man who bears a striking resemblance to Nicolas Cage surfaced a few months ago, folks have started to wonder if the unstoppable acting machine might be, you know: a vampire.
Ghost Rider creator Gary Friedrich was already broke, but now that he's lost a lawsuit with Marvel Comics, the poor guy can't even afford a ticket to see his character retake the big screen in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance next week.
Nicolas Cage has a well-deserved reputation as a bit of an eccentric, but he's also a dedicated comic fan who wants to do right by the comics-inspired characters he plays. So when it came time to be Johnny Blaze and his fiery alter-ego Ghost Rider, Cage says he turned to a very ancient form of inspiration: magic.
We were was lucky enough to fly to Romania last year to check out the set of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and chat with the cast and crew. Now, now. We can hear you getting your panties in a bunch about that last Ghost Rider film. We get it. We agree.
While not quite as crazy as that first Ghost Rider 2 teaser—in which, if you'll remember, Nicolas Cage's fiery alter-ego actually urinated fire—this first full trailer clues us in to what the movie's actually about. And, yes, blows up lots of stuff with hell-fire.
