Mortal Kombat Writer Talks Bringing Johnny Cage In For The Sequel

Video game movies have had a storied history in the film world, with countless failed adaptations hitting theaters over the years. But there has been an upswing on quality video game flicks, including 2021’s Mortal Kombat. A sequel is on the way, which should expand the growing franchise in an exciting way. And Mortal Kombat 2’s writer recently spoke about bringing fan favorite character Johnny Cage in for the sequel.

A number of narrative seeds were planted in the first Mortal Kombat movie, in hopes of a sequel eventually following. One of these came in the final moments of the film, where Lewis Tan’s Cole departed to recruit Johnny Cage to join Earthrealm’s forces. This delighted hardcore fans of Mortal Kombat, as the character was noticeably missing throughout that first movie. Screenwriter Jeremy Slater is writing the upcoming sequel, and opened up to ComicBook about bringing the iconic fighter to life. As he put it,

It’s still a little bit up in the air how much he will be included, it’s one of the things we’re currently working on. But yeah, I love Johnny and I would love to really do the definitive version, if possible, and really take everything that’s fun about that character and bring that to live-action.
