Who is the surprising The Flash cameo?
With The Flash tackling the concept of the multiverse, it makes sense that different versions of major characters would make appearances. Muschietti revealed that Nicolas Cage’s Superman is one such character and described the process of working with the iconic actor.
“Nic was absolutely wonderful. Although the role was a cameo, he dove into it,” Muschietti explained to Esquire Middle East. “I dreamt all my life to work with him. I hope I can work with him again soon.”
In the 1990s, Cage was set to play Superman in the Tim Burton-directed movie Superman Lives. The project ended up being canceled, though it seems that fans will finally be able to see Cage’s Superman in The Flash.
The Flash movie sees the return of Ezra Miller as the DCEU’s Scarlet Speedster/ Barry Allen, who they first portrayed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Joining Miller are Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Sasha Calle as Supergirl, and Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, along with Keaton and Ben Affleck who will reprise their respective versions of Bruce Wayne/Batman for the film.
The film is directed by IT‘s Andy Muschietti from the latest screenplay written by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey). It is being executive produced by Marianne Jenkins with Michael Disco and Barbara Muschietti set as producers.
