Mortal Kombat was just released on HBO Max the other week.
People have been really loving the movie, even though I thought it was pretty bad.
However, one thing I can get behind is the idea of a sequel with Johnny Cage.
The movie ended with a big tease towards Johnny Cage being in the sequel.
However, this then brings up the question of who should play Johnny Cage in the Mortal Kombat sequel.
It seems as though fans really like the idea of Ryan Reynolds playing Johnny Cage in this Mortal Kombat 2.
Fans want Ryan Reynolds to play Johnny Depp in Mortal Kombat 2

If Warner Bros was smart they’d cast Ryan Reynolds as Johnny Cage 🤷🏾♂️

As you can tell, there’s a big appetite for Reynolds to play Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat 2.
Honestly, I think it would be incredible casting.
However, I do not think that they’d be able to afford Reynolds at the moment.
There’s also the fact that Reynolds is very busy at the moment.
He’s got Deadpool 3 in the works and will be starring in Red Notice alongside Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot.
It’ll be rather difficult to fit Mortal Kombat 2 into Reynolds’ already packed schedule.
Still, it would be amazing to see him turn up in the movie as Cage.
