One of Hollywood’s great almost-happened movies would have seen Nicolas Cage play Superman in a blockbuster directed by Tim Burton, but fans will have to be content with imagining what that spectacle would have looked like.

For example, here’s Cage taking on Amy Adams’ role of Lois Lane in “Man of Steel”:
