The Boys Star Karl Urban in Talks to Play Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat 2

The Wrap reports that WB may have found someone to play the washed-up action star: The Boys’ Billy Butcher, Karl Urban. We don’t have official confirmation yet, but Urban is said to be in final talks to join the film. Should he land the role, he’ll no doubt be one of the biggest names in the movie—then again, we have no idea who else they’re adding to the cast yet.

Though the first film was called Mortal Kombat, we didn’t see the tournament. Instead, we only watched the characters with the weird dragon birthmark train to get invited to the tournament. For now, the stage is set for Earth Realm’s Sonya Blade, Jax, and Liu Kang to join the fight; we also have a new character Cole Young, and it’s implied that he’ll be the one to recruit Johnny Cage to join Raiden’s team of fighters.

I’m disappointed that they didn’t just write Cole to be Johnny in the film. I theorized that Johnny Cage could have been Cole’s stage name after becoming a rising action star, but I guess the character is too boring to be the cocky idiot that Johnny is supposed to be.

I’m just here hoping they find a way to get Jean-Claude Van Damme involved since his movie Bloodsport inspired the whole MK franchise, and Cage was supposedly based on him.

Mortal Kombat 2 has no release date, but you can watch out for Urban in The Boys now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
