Nicolas Cage Insists It’s Better ‘Superman Lives’ Never Got Made

For a movie that died a sudden and painful death in Pittsburgh, we’ve sure written a lot about Superman Lives. We’ll never see what Tim Burton and Nicolas Cage intended, but that’s OK by Cage, because that means we can create a better movie in our hearts.

Cage is currently promoting The Runner, a drama that will likely be hobbled by his insistence on using a Louisiana accent, and was asked by Yahoo! about Superman Lives. His response?

…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.

In other words, Nic Cage wants us all to come together and imagine what a mulleted Superman would look like fighting a giant robotic spider. In a Superman suit seemingly designed by latex fetishists.

You know what? He actually has a point. There’s no way any movie could top what we’re probably all imagining right now.
