Mortal Kombat Co-Creator responds to Miz wanting to be cast as Johnny Cage in the next movie. The reboot movie of the franchise released yesterday in theatres.
Mortal Kombat is one of the most popular franchises. Based on the fighting video game series, it spawned two movies back in the 90’s. The reboot hit theatres yesterday, April 23, in theaters and on HBO Max and a WWE Superstar wants to be part of the next one.
Former WWE Champion The Miz, made it known that he wants to play the part of Johnny Cage in the next Mortal Kombat movie. He posted a picture of himself on Twitter with the following caption:
“No Johnny Cage? I AM the special effects. Let me do the casting for you. Say cheese #MortalKombat @MKMovie @noobde”

Ed Boon, the co-creator of the Mortal Kombat franchise, seemed to be in sync with the A-Lister’s pitch to play the part of the narcisistic movie star in the next movie. He wrote:
“Guy makes a compelling case.”

The Miz would be a perfect fit to play the role of the cocky, overconfident, Hollywood star. He already plays the role on WWE TV and has been doing so for almost two decades. It will be interesting to see the A-Lister bring this character to life on the big screen.
It may be possible that someone else actually gets casted in the role, but as of now, the nod from the creator itself will serve as major encouragement for the Miz.
Linden Ashby played Johnny Cage in the 1995 film.
