Nicolas Cage was almost in a Superman movie directed by Tim Burtonand written by Kevin Smith, but then the craziest producer you've never heard of - Jon Peters - kept making crazier and crazier demands until the project fell apart. We were THIS close to watching Nic Cage in tights fight a giant spider, is the point.

About half of us were first exposed to now-famous superhero comics via out-of-context comic panels used as internet memes, but we looked up the original issues and those memes are actually UNDERSELLING the glorious stupidity and insanity of the original stories. Stories like the Joker's "boner" fixation, Captain America's public "wanking," and the time Batman got slap-happy with his little buddy.

The history of the Justice League is almost as long as the Snyder Cut's runtime. And it's chock full of fascinating stuff, especially at the beginning like Wonder Woman's love of rough stuff, Superman's origins as an evil homeless guy, and Darkseid's insatiable thirst for monogamy. Also, Batman was blonde. This is CanonBall.

"Superman & Lois" is the latest CW show set in the Arrowverse, and it promises to adapt the couple's famous, long-enduring relationship in a grounded and thoughtful way. You know, basically the exact opposite of how it goes in the comics where we get Lois trying to kill herself for Superman's pleasure, the seduction of multiple babies, and Superman transforming his girlfriend fat and also an entirely different race.

It's said that you learn something new every day. Well, today we learned that Nicolas Cage was slated to star in a Tim Burton-helmed Superman film. The movie, titled Superman Lives sounded like the breath of fresh air that the franchise needed. But due to production company drama, the plug was ultimately pulled. These costume tests from 1997, however, give us a taste of the awesomeness that might have been.

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's...Superman With A Hipster Mustache?

Mustaches are no longer reserved for hipsters or tired stereotypes - the latest figure to sport the facial 'do is Superman. Following the controversial news that Henry Cavill's  Mission Impossible 6 mustache would be digitally removed from November's Justice League, fans have been hard at work making clever memes. We have to admit, mustachio'd Superman does bear a serious resemblance to Freddie Mercury.
