And not just anyone: the Kick-Ass actor already sees himself as Egghead…

Sam Raimi Is Super Hot To Direct A Batman Movie
During a recent appearance at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, Nicholas Cage reveals to have a very specific idea in mind: to embody a villain of the cult series of the 1960s.
“I’m thinking about it right now because of the new movie with Robert Pattinson as Batman. I can’t wait to see it. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m sure it’s great. And I’m like that I would love to play the villain that Vincent Price played in the old Batman series from the 1960s. A villain called Egghead. I would love to try playing Egghead.”
Nicholas Cage continues and advances: “I really believe I could make it absolutely terrifying. And I have a concept for Egghead, so let Warner Bros. know. I’m up for playing Egghead.”
You should know that the villain Egghead does not come from DC comics and was a character created specifically for the television series worn by Adam West. The character was best known for his big bald head and considered himself the smartest criminal in the world. His evil deeds were marked with a kind of egg pattern.
So will Egghead be the big villain of The Batman 2 ? Nicholas Cage will he face Robert Pattinson? We are already dreaming…
