‘Mortal Kombat (2021)’ Producer Explains Why There’s No Johnny Cage In The Film

Todd Garner, the producer for the upcoming Mortal Kombat film, explains why there isn’t no Johnny Cage in the movie.

In a recent interview with ComicBook, here’s what Garner had to say:

I want to make a sequel, and I’ve now got Johnny Cage, which hasn’t been used in the first one. So I have a big stick and carrot that maybe they’ll let me have a Johnny Cage real presence in the second one. And secondarily, when you think about Mortal Kombat, if you just think about the patina of the movie, it has a very Asian feel to it. And I early on felt uncomfortable having a white male lead kind of lead that charge in the first movie. It just felt Hollywoodish to me, which is weird because he’s an actor, which also is weird. And probably my bias of… it just feels weird if I’m trying to do, and I was, do something different and diverse and true. Is it a cop-out to all of a sudden have Ryan Reynolds, not him, but… As the lead felt a little disingenuous to me and super easy to bring him in, in a big bombastic fun way in the second. And he deserves that as a character. And I love these characters, so we thought hard about it.

A lot of fans, including myself, were wondering why Johnny Cage wasn’t in the new film, and Garner’s explanation made sense. Now I hope there is a sequel for the film so we can see Cage’s grand entrance! Overall, I’m excited for Mortal Kombat (2021), and I hope it meets my expectations.

Mortal Kombat will release in theaters and HBO Max on April 16th!
