Last year, the Mortal Kombat movie series got a reboot, banking $22.5 million at its domestic box office opening in the US.
Although we got to see quite a lot of the Mortal Kombat cast, not everyone featured in the movie. One, in particular, that was missing was Johnny Cage. Fortunately, a sequel has been confirmed, so there might just be a chance that we’ll one day see this character return.
If so, WWE superstar Mike ‘The Miz’ Mizanin might be worth considering. After the internet decided he would be the right guy for the role, The Miz embraced this idea and began training for the role. In an update, he’s apparently been working on everything from his kicks to the splits, in order to secure the role. Ouch! Here’s exactly what he had to say:
When some fans expressed how disappointed they were about Johnny Cage not appearing in the reboot, the film’s producer Todd Garner said it was his “very big personality” that required his own space, but could potentially appear in the confirmed sequel.
So, if you’re listening Ed or New Line, we’ve got a guy here who’s clearly passionate about the role – give him a call. What do you think though? Would you like to see ‘The Miz’ cast as Johnny Cage? Show your support in the comments below.
