Would be the greatest casting since Hugh Jackman as wolverine.
I’m always slightly amused whenever an actor comes out and says they’d like to play a role in a movie, without anyone involved in the movie asking them first. Has that ever really worked out?
Yeah, I miss crushing him.
Idk about putting him in the next Batman movie, but if Nicholas Cage gets to cameo as Egghead in a hypothetical Suicide Squad sequel (sorta like what they did with Calendar Man), I think that’d be really cool!
On one hand, respect for Cage pulling out an obscure character.
On the other hand, may I offer a better role for his skills:
I mean, read this in Nic’s voice and tell me I’m wrong.
OH MY GOD I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING.
If Eggman and Professor Pyg teamed up, they would be called “Bacon and Eggs.” I can picture a Robin throwing them on the steps of GCPD saying “Breakfast is served.”
Rarely, if ever. Most of the time when we see stuff like this it’s usually a designed attention grab of some spotlight. It’s also a clear indicator that he’s got a stack of scripts on his desk that he’s not happy with and he’s letting Tinseltown biz peeps know that he’s fishing for new opps. Gotta’ say tho I do love the idea of him reprising the late great Vincent Price’s role as Egghead. Not so much in Reeves’ franchise (the character just doesn’t seem to fit the storyline), but here-
Yes, YES PLEEZ.
Every bit of this is pure
This is gonna sound weird, but I think I have to explain it in order to convey how I feel now that I’m seeing this.
First off (this is the oddball part, bare with me here), but my mom has said that Nicolas Cage looks like my dad. Now, I have never met my father, because reasons, but I am the spinning image of my father, and if my father looks similarly to Nicholas Cage…
This is one of those things that has never left my mind ever since she said this to me, and for many years I have never looked at him the same way again (needless to say the movie Face Off can be weird for me to watch).
Why is this important? Well, even though this is nothing official, or confirmed, and this is just something that he shared his thoughts on… the idea of Eggman being played by a guy who looks like my father, who I look like… I just don’t know.
Obviously… this is just me. I’m not saying this as any reason as to why he shouldn’t. Being an actor that gets a role as a character is his job and it’s what keeps the lights on for him, and my teeny tiny weird brain thought isn’t something that is going to keep this from happening (see, I even admit this, unlike some internet incels). This is just what instantly popped into my head when I saw this thread.
I guess the only question I have now is what potential story/movie would Eggman need to show up, but if The Suicide Squad was able to bring in obscure characters and make them the highlights of the movie, then whatever happens happens
I don’t hate this idea, I don’t love this idea. All I know is that if this ever does come into fruition, all I’ll be thinking about is “Why does Eggman look like my father?” which I admit is a very funny thought
The thought that comes to my mind is maybe a rival crime lord?
That would just be all kinds of brilliant!
What…you think he’s getting tired of doing DTV movie after DTV movie, and wants to be in something that people will actually, you know, see? Nah.
I don’t think Egghead would fit Reeves’ take on Batman, but in the DCEU and in “Suicide Squad Tres: Three Times The Mess!” as directed by James Gunn?
As Lex said in Superman Returns, “Bring it on!”
imagines Cagehead making egg puns, to which Peacemaker says “Oh my God, dude! Would you shut the **** up about eggs, already?!” as Harley giggles nearby
I think it would be a truly missed opportunity not to be able to hear and see Cage pastiche any and all wording in his on screen dialogue that begin with the letters ex to egg (ie: eggcellent, eggsistential, and so on) ala Vincent Price’s unforgettable B’Man '66 performances. This facet of his performance alone would truly be worth the price of admission, without a doubt.
As a fan of NC (yes! Including Willy’s Wonderland, somehow!), I’m content to let him do whatever he wants and support him in any role.
I’ll give him credit, he’s got stones for picking the roles he has over the last decade and change.
