SuperHeroHype had a chance to sit down with Cage before the Sony panel in Hall H, which you can read about hereand we learned about why he decided to come back to the role and what was involved with playing both sides of the chopper-riding hellspawn. 

Check out what he said in the video interview below, and you can also  watch our previous video interviews with directors Neveldine/Taylor and actor Johnny Whitworth here and here.
