As Man of Steel, Henry Cavill gained more fan following than any other actor. Therefore, James Gunn’s action of axing the actor resulted in a campaign to bring him back. There was a little hope of him coming back one last time in the most anticipated movie, The Flash. However, DC Studios has brought another legendary actor as Superman rather than the British actor.

Batman will reunite with Superman in the Ezra Miller starrer, The Flash. While the film brings back Michael Keaton’s Batman, it is not Henry Cavill who is coming back. Instead, the viewers will see the Ghost Rider actor, Nicolas Cage, as the Man of Steel. As Giant Freakin Robot reported, in the recent screen testing of the upcoming film, Barry Allen catches a glimpse of Man of Steel fighting a giant mechanical spider. And the Kryptonian is none other than the Redfield star.

Apparently, Cage was supposed to play the role of the superhero in the late 1990s. Tim Burton was going to make the Superman movie after the big success of his Batman films. However, even after the screen tests, the movie did not happen. While it has been a dream of Cage fans, The Flash turns it into a reality by bringing him into Allen’s multiple realities.

How is Barry Allen’s Flash going to see Superman in the movie?

Apparently, while Barry Allen is running in the Speed Force, he sees multiple different realities. One of these would include the version of the Man of Steel that Nicolas Cage is playing. That also opens the possibility of other versions of the Kryptonian in the movie.

Reportedly, when the studio got the Enola Holmes actor back, he shot a cameo for this movie, too. However, because of his departure from DCU, the executives decided not to include Cavill’s version. They believed it would misguide the fandom.

Just like the 39-year-old actor, Cage is also a big comic book fan. If he indeed appears in the upcoming DC film, it would be exciting to see how it turns out. While we wait for the film to hit the theaters on the 16th of June, tell us if you expected Nicolas Cage to be in the film.
