July 31, 2015: Nicolas Cage Talks "Superman Lives!"

by Neil A. Cole

In a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies about his latest film "The Runner", actor Nicolas Cage also talked his role as the Man of Steel in director Tim Burton's failed project, "Superman Lives!". Here's an excerpt:

"I would've loved to have seen it, but I feel that in many ways, it was sort of a win/win because of the power of the imagination. I think people can actually see the movie in their minds now and imagine it and in many ways that might resonate more deeply than the finished project.

"Tim is the total artist, a pure artist with a real vision, and Iíve often said that he can create worlds and thatís exactly what he does. I saw some of the tests of different characters and costumes for Krypton and they were just so surreal and so magical and beautiful. Heís definitely one of my favorite filmmakers because of his originality, because of his vision."
