Nicolas Cage Has Finally Been Cast as Spider-Man
Nicolas Cage is currently in the midst of his umpteenth renaissance. In addition to the incredible-looking Mandy, the truly malleable actor voiced Superman in Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is also starring in a Sion Sono film. As if that weren't enough, he's also been cast as Spider-Man.

Yes, Cage will become Spidey in the upcoming film Spider-Man: Into the Universe. The film is based on the comic of the same name, which follows Spider-Man in the "noir" dimension.

As Wikipedia explains, "In this reality, Peter Parker is an inexperienced yet idealistic apprentice of a respected yet troubled reporter, who is accidentally bitten by a illegally imported and highly venomous spider, while secretly investigating a smuggling ring of ancient spider statues, but instead of killing him, the incident imbues him with super-human abilities, similar to that of a spider."

The animated film will arrive this December, and also includes the voices of Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali and Liev Schreiber.
