The race of Nicolas Cage He’s going through a good moment again, to the point that right now he’s promoting ‘Renfield’, his first film for a major Hollywood studio since the premiere of ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’ almost 12 years ago.
“that would be fun“
This promotional campaign has led him to participate in a Reddit AMA, where he has answered questions of all kinds, but there is one that is especially striking. The reason is that Cage has revealed a DC character you’d like to playcommenting the following on that topic:
Jim Corrigan, the Specter (former DC comic character). It would be funny. But he’s hard to get because he’s practically invincible, he has no weaknesses. You need characters that have a kryptonite, that have a flaw, but are unbeatable. But that would be fun.
Created by jerry siegel In 1940, Corrigan was a police detective who was murdered by gang members, which is when things really get complicated, as he becomes the host of the Spectre, the spirit of God’s vengeance. He was barely used for a few years before being shelved for over two decades, but it’s clear that the ‘Con Air’ lead is referring to that early iteration of the character.
Obviously, it is one thing for Cage, who at the time was about to star in a Superman movie, to be interested in playing Corrigan and another for that to happen. In his favor he has the imminent relaunch of DC promoted by James Gunnwhich opens up a possibility for it to happen, but it is still a remote option.
By the way, it would not be the first time that we would see a flesh and blood version of Corrigan, well Emmett J Scanlan (‘Peaky Blinders’) has already performed it on television ‘Constantine’while stephen wolf saw a version of the character from an alternate universe come to life in the ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’, the great Arrowverso crossover.
