We’re finally going to hear Nicolas Cage play Superman in the animated ‘Teen Titans GO! To the Movies’ but if he was ever a villain, it sounds that the actor would love to have been The Joker. While he was also open to Doctor Doom on the Marvel side of things, it appears that The Joker is the role he feels would be the best fit for his acting style.
In fact, with his unique style, he feels that “It would be the perfect one for me to go even more off the rails than I’ve ever done before and, y’know, it’d be fun.”
That being said, Cage believes his time in comic book movies has come to an end after he was able to play Ghost Rider. Still, if the chance to be in another did come up here were his full thoughts on it:
“I mean, I think my comic book days are kind of…I’m on to other things, but I always thought I’d make a great Joker and I always thought that I would’ve been a good villain in one of the Marvel [movies] like Doctor Doom. But, Doctor Doom you have to wear that mask, but I thought the story leading up to Doctor Doom could’ve been interesting. At this point, if I was to go back into the format, it would probably have to be as a villain.”
We’ve all seen Cage play a few crazy rolls at this point so it wouldn’t be that much of a stretch. I mean, it couldn’t be much worse than Jared Leto‘s take on the character at this point.
Would you be open to seeing Nicolas Cage playing the Crown Prince of Crime? Do you feel that his over the top personality would be an excellent fit for The Joker? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
