Johnny Cage appears prominently in the original 1995 Mortal Kombat movie but is curiously missing from the recent remake. Spoilers Alert ahead! He ended up in L.A. as protagonist Cole Young who left his work to compete in the Mortal Kombat tournament at the end of the movie.
There is no confirmed information on who will play the Cage character, but that hasn’t stopped Social media from buzzing about who they would like to see play the iconic character.
Enter Ryan Reynolds. Fans have been going nuts over the prospect of Reynolds playing the iconic role of Cage.
The Pokémon Detective Pikachu star knows a thing or two about computer/video game adaptations. So there’s that!
So what do you guys think? Could you see Ryan Reynolds playing Johnny Cage?
Here’s what some of you are saying about this potential news:
