I have the same reaction anytime I see Cage trying to play a tough guy. It would be awful if he was Supes. He's a whiny wuss.

Warner Brothers almost did, with Tim Burton directing and Nicholas Cage as Supes. They went so far as to film a screen test, but supposedly Cage looked so silly as Supes (he refused to fix his receding hairline) that Burton couldn't stop laughing.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." -Bene Gesserit litany against fear
