Johnny Cage was not seen last year mortal Kombat reboot, but the film’s conclusion made it clear that the character would appear in a sequel. At the end of the film, Cole Young of Lewis Tan travels to Los Angeles to recruit a movie star for the next tournament. In a new interview with Adam Barnhardt of ComicBook.com, Mortal Kombat 2 Writer Jeremy Slater was asked about the story of Johnny Cage in the sequel. Although Slater isn’t sure how much emphasis the film will put on Cage, the writer is hoping to bring the definitive version of the character to the big screen.
“Johnny Cage is one of my favorite characters, and I think there’s definitely a promise. The way Cole’s first movie ends with, ‘Okay, my next stop is to recruit Johnny.’ So I think if he wasn’t included in the sequel at all, it would look very strange,” Slater said. “It’s still a bit up in the air how much he’ll be involved, it’s one of the things we’re currently working on. But yeah, I love Johnny and I really would if possible I would love to do the definitive version, and really take everything that’s funny about that character and bring it to life.”
Johnny Cage was absent from last year’s film, but he played a key role in 1995 mortal Kombat film, where he was portrayed by Lyndon Ashby. All these years later, Ashby remains one of the most memorable parts of the film, acting as a strong source of comic relief. New Line Cinema has not cast any actors in the role Mortal Kombat 2Although fans have petitioned for The Miz as well as Ryan Reynolds.
Regardless of the role, expect Slater and New Line Cinema to deliver a sequel that expands on the previous film, while also bringing in more elements from the Mortal Kombat canon. For now, fans will just have to patiently wait to see what happens next!
