POLL: Should Nic Cage play Batman in The Dark Knight Returns?

Posted by LiveFor on March 14, 2010

Reviews of Kick-Ass are steadily coming through the internet and many of them say how good Nic Cage is as Big Daddy. That character is the father of Chloe Moretz’s Hit Girl. In the film Cage based his performance on Adam West’s delivery from the old Batman TV series – initially jarring, but works well.

That got me thinking. Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns is one of the all time classic graphic novels. It has an older Bruce Wayne putting the cowl back on to clean up an messed up Gotham. Robin is a girl this time and a similar dynamic to the Kick-Ass set up. Plus Batman ends up beating the crap out of Superman who is a stooge for the CIA.

Therefore, just as a way of passing the time I put the following to you:

Going past the Adam West performance, would Nicolas Cage be a good Bruce Wayne / Batman of they ever made The Dark Knight Returns?

  1. I hate to admit it but Nic could actually pull this off…he would have to get pretty buff though.
