“Oh, No! Not the Bees! Not the Bees!”: Our Nicolas Cage Retrospective

Nicolas Cage is one of the most polarizing actors in recent memory. He oscillates from emotionally-charged (Leaving Las VegasRaising ArizonaJoe) to some of the most truly manic performances ever conceived (Vampire’s Kiss The Wicker ManFace/Off). He is also one extremely marketable as he was almost cast as Superman in a Tim Burton-led Superman film and then later cast in the much-maligned Ghost Rider films.

This month we are taking a look at Nic Cage through the years as he progressed from comedic actor to serious actor then full-blown action star. We’ll also be taking a break from Nic Cage films to talk the next entry into the DC Comics cinematic universe Suicide Squad.
