And now, in what is perhaps the greatest casting joke/cameo in superhero history (sorry, Stan Lee), they've gotten Nicolas Cage to be their Superman.

Teen Titans GO! To the Movies plans to break the fourth wall like the LEGO and Muppet movies before them, taking heroes on a trip to Hollywood inside an actual Hollywood movie - and now, when the film premieres on July 27, it'll be led by the internet's most beloved A-lister.

Teen Titans GO! to the Movies will feature Nicolas Cage voicing Superman. Existing in the same continuity as their insane yet still active show on Cartoon Network, the Teen Titans find out that other DC superheroes seem to have films produced, so they seek out the flawless director for their debut on the big screen, but an old enemy has other ideas planned for them.

Teen Titans GO! has done well for a revamped version of the Teen Titans original show many fans were devastated to see, well, go, and has quickly become such a success a movie has been given the green light.

Thanks to the upcoming "Teen Titans Go!". Adding Cage to the cast as Superman, however, is a masterstroke.

Cage came very close to playing the part on screen before, going so far as to try out different Superman costumes.

Other actors who make up the all-star cast are Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Hynden Walch as Starfire, Greg Cipes as Beast Boy and Tara Strong as Raven, also joined by Will Arnett.

Though DC's recent live-action films have all been maligned by critics (excepting only Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman), the company's offerings for children have possessed more of the earnest, positive messaging memorable from most Superman comics.

Warners Bros. describes the movie as "a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers". It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies-everyone but the Teen Titans, that is!

Cage did, however, play the title role in both Ghost Rider movies, and while he was delightfully hammy in them, the films themselves were a massive disappointment to fans. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream.
