Cage was almost set to play the caped superhero in Tim Burton's film titled Superman Lives, which ultimately got shelved, reports the Independent.
Fans have recently been sharing clips of the footage shot during the fitting sessions of Superman Lives which depicts Cage trying the suit before a team and Burton. A self-confessed Superman fan, Cage has even named his son Kal-El, which is the alien name of Superman.
