For superhero cameos, Teen Titans GO! to the Movies went to the music charts and also added an Oscar winner as its Man of Steel.

Nicolas Cage is voicing A-list comic-book icon Superman, singer/songwriter Halsey co-stars as Amazon princess Wonder Woman — who travels around in her signature invisible jet — and rapper Lil Yachty plays Green Lantern in the upcoming animated movie (in theaters July 27) that takes the young heroes of the Cartoon Network show Teen Titans GO! to the big screen. They are the first of several celebrities lending their talents for additional DC characters in the project.

It's an intriguing role for Cage, arguably the most famous Superman fan in Hollywood: He named his son Kal-El (aka the hero's Kryptonian birthname), once owned a rare issue of Superman's 1938 comic debut (and sold it for $2.1 million), and was supposed to play the character in Tim Burton's scrapped 1998 Superman Lives movie.

"Every superhero in the DC Universe has an impact on the fans, so we felt a great responsibility to find a voice for each character that would not only suit the role, but the playful tone of the Titans, and we’re thrilled with our cameo cast," says executive producer Sam Register.

In the film, Batman sidekick Robin (Scott Menville), alien warrior Starfire (Hynden Walch), half-demon Raven (Tara Strong), human/android hybrid Cyborg (Khary Payton) and shapeshifter Beast Boy (Greg Cipes) seeking out a popular Hollywood director (Kristen Bell) for their big pop-culture break.
