On the heels of yesterday’s debut of the first trailer for National Treasure: Edge Of History, which will pick up where National Treasure and National Treasure: Book of Secrets left off by sending a new set of characters on an unbelievable historical journey, albeit Justin Bartha and Harvey Keitel will at least be returning to provide some connective tissue.
A National Treasure 3 with Nicolas Cage at the helm has not yet managed to launch, despite earning more than $800 million at the box office and holding a unique place in the hearts of a generation. There was speculation for some time that it might happen, but even the actor himself acknowledged that he had missed his opportunity.

However, if Edge of History is renewed for multiple seasons as the Mouse House undoubtedly desires, it’s hard to predict whether we’ll see Ben Gates pop in for a brief appearance. Marianne and Cormac Wibberley of the franchise maintain that this is likely to happen.
Funnily enough, not long after the trailer debuted, Nic Cage was trending across the planet as a result of National Treasure fans expressing their desire to see him appear sooner or later.
It’s also possible that Cage has already completed a secret cameo appearance, as Disney Plus original shows are known for doing because the various Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe properties have demonstrated, but we’ll see if Edge of History can stand on its own two feet. In any case, we’re hoping to see Cage again some day.
