UPDATE! Some people are claiming this is a fake, that it’s just Nic Cage’s head on an action figure. Investigation commencing!

I have been waiting years to see this picture. Years. And now a Japanese Tim Burton fansite has it: the Superman costume test featuring Nic Cage. The video below is padded with some sketches and concept art you’ve probably seen before, and it only gets to the Cage pic at the end, but it’s worth the wait. This costume looks like something you buy at fucking Wal-Mart. It’s all plastic and shiny and horrible. And Nic Cage looks LUDICROUS in it.

What a disaster  Tim Burton’s Superman would have been. Thanks to Jamie Williams for the link.
