WWE Superstar The Miz has stated his intentions regarding Johnny Cage and the Mortal Kombat franchise. The new MK film came out yesterday via HBO Max, and the former WWE Champion has made it clear that he wants to play the action movie star in subsequent films.
“No Johnny Cage? I AM the special effects” The Miz wrote on Twitter. “Let me do the casting for you. Say cheese #MortalKombat.”

The former Champion also tagged in the co-creator of Mortal Kombat, Ed Boon, in his tweet. Boon responded to the WWE Superstar’s claim, simply saying “guy makes a compelling case.”
The Miz has arguably been the perfect person to play the Johnny Cage character for years. If you haven’t played Mortal Kombat, then Cage is a fighter that is also a narcissistic action movie star. In terms of The Miz ‘character,’ it’s not a million miles away from Cage; so Miz really would be the perfect casting choice in any sequels.
I mean let’s be honest, anything they do will be better than Mortal Kombat Annihilation.
