USA Today snagged the exclusive late Monday announcing Cage's involvement in the animated film.

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. To the Movies-Cage will appear in a short voice-cameo as Superman opposite R&B star Lil Yachty as Green Lantern and popstar Halsey as Wonder Woman. He was also in the running to play Superman in the notoriously troubled film production of Superman Lives! And, of course, the rest of the show's original core cast will be reprising their roles as Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven and Beast Boy.

Maybe the Teen Titans GO! crew will be tasked with stealing the Declaration of Independence. Does being a superhero make you any better at video games? My interest in this project has increased considerably based on his casting alone. Cage gave Superman's birth name to his own son, Kal-El Cage, and he was one of the few collectors to ever own a highly sought after copy of Action Comics #1, which was the first comic book appearance of the Man of Steel.

In addition to the more stunt-cast celebrities, the voice cast for the Teen Titans Go! movie also features Will Arnett, Kristen Bell, and series regulars Khary Payton, Greg Cipes, Scott Menville, Tara Strong, and Hynden Walch. But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. Believe it or not, the studio pulled the plug on that one just days before shooting was set to commence, making it one of the hottest pieces of trivia in superhero film history, with even a documentary about it having been produced in the time since. "The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line".
