Johnny Cage will not appear in the Mortal Kombat movie
When the first trailer for the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie – which will be released on April 16 – hit the web, we got a surprising picture. Because it does not lack the blood and brutality we know from the series of games. But there are a lot of well-known and liked characters, including entertainment ones Johnny Cage.
Johhny was first introduced to the series in 1992. Cage was a fixture in the series and even the main character in the first film, played by Lindena Ashby. As it turns out, it is not in the new production. And imagine if we know the reason why it doesn’t appear.
“The reason we didn’t add Johnny Cage to the movie is because he’s a very selfish guy. Yes, he’s funny and so is Kano, ”producer Todd Garner explained at the film’s press conference.
In the movie Kano is played by a foster child of House of Lies, Josh Lawson. As the trailer suggests, he seems to be the character that brings a dose of humor to the whole. Given the dark and brutal tone of the film, the two humorous characters could turn out to be too much.
Plus, just because he’s not in the movie doesn’t mean he doesn’t have plans for Johnny Cage. “If God willing, we are able to make another one. Everyone is waiting for it, ”said Garner.
We still have to wait less than a month for the film until April 16. Will we be able to see it in cinemas on the day of its premiere? We will find out about it in some time …
