The Miz on Wanting to Play Johnny Cage in a Mortal Kombat Movie

The Miz is one of WWE’s top stars and he recently spoke on social media about wanting to play Johnny Cage in a Mortal Kombat movie. Mortal Kombat is a huge franchise and is very popular, thanks to its video games. The video games were the first of their kind as they introduced the world to the concept of extreme gore in video games.

Although the video games were extremely popular, the movies themselves could never get any kind of critical acclaim. However, the Miz still wishes to play the role of Johnny Cage, even though there is really no Mortal Kombat movie on the horizon.

TMZ Sports recently caught him for an interview to speak about his Johnny Cage comment and whether he is serious about playing the role.

“TMZ always following me everywhere I go.

I think that gets me into the Johnny Cage realm of who I should be as the character,” Miz joked. “Honestly, if I have a shot at it, I would definitely want to make sure I give everything I possibly can to make sure that not only the production company, and the director are happy with the character I get, but also, the fans.

They are the ones who are so adamant about Johnny Cage being in the movie. “I’ve never seen so much reaction towards a movie that is great. When a movie is great, people are like, ‘Oh! This is amazing!’.

But all you heard was, ‘Where’s Johnny Cage? Where’s Johnny Cage?’ So, you know that this is an iconic character in the Mortal Kombat franchise and it needs to be done right. And if I’m the person to do, then so be it, I’m ready to go”.

He was then asked about his background in combat. The Miz stated that he has done some Karate in his life, but he is not a black belt. He is committed to learning all the moves prior to playing Cage’s role to make the moves look good on TV.

“It’s cool, honestly, when my name comes up to anything, like, ‘Hey, Miz should do this.’ It’s usually a lot of negativity,” The Miz said. “It’s usually a lot of, ‘No!

He sucks, we hate him! He’s horrible.’ But this was the first time my name was dropped in something and everyone gravitated towards the positive side. “Now, I was really appreciative towards that because it really hit me, I was like, ‘Wow.’ I remember playing this game when I was a kid, like, Sega Genesis, I would never play Super Nintendo because it didn’t have the blood. I remember playing as Johnny Cage and to see this kind of all happening it would be a dream come true”.
