The Miz from WWE Interested In Playing Mortal Kombat’s Johnny Cage in Upcoming Movie

Published

on

WWE superstar Mike “The Miz” Mizanin has expressed interest in playing Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat 2, the sequel to the 2021 video game film adaptation.

Getting Serious

The former WWE Champion is so dedicated to the part that he’s already working on getting cast as Johnny Cage in the upcoming Mortal Kombat film. Miz stated on a recent podcast that he began practicing for the role shortly after fans on social media began fan-casting him for the part.

The Dedication

“Because Johnny can do both,” Miz wanted to perfect the character’s left-handed and right-handed opening kicks, so he contacted a trainer he had previously worked with on Marine 6, the sixth and final part of WWE Studios’ The Marine action movie series. He also stated that he is “almost there” in terms of being able to do the splits.

Miz stated in an interview last year that having his name widely associated with the persona on social media fueled his desire to be cast as Johnny Cage. Following the advice of his peers and even Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon, he set out to offer “the Mortal Kombat fans the Johnny Cage that they deserve.”

Pirates of the Caribbean 6 to Cast Margot Robbie in Lead Role

Margot Robbie is set to star in a new Pirates of the Caribbean film, but Johnny Depp may not return. In four further sequels, he resumed the role, but his involvement in a planned sixth film has been in doubt in recent years and even up to now with recent events.

Success to Come

It won’t be a surprise if Disney would reboot the whole Pirates franchise, even though the fifth film was a huge commercial success, with a gross profit of $800 million worldwide, it’s only gotten a Rotten Tomatoes score of only 30 percent.

Right for the Role

Legendary Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer claimed two Pirates scripts were still in the works, including the one with Robbie, in a recent interview ahead of the release of Top Gun: Maverick.

“Yes. We’re talking to Margot Robbie. We’re developing two Pirates scripts – one with her, one without her,” he remarked when asked about the franchise’s future and the possibility of a female lead. “Not at this time,” Bruckheimer stated, “the future is yet to be decided.”
