Sanada added more to the tease when asked who would play the role of Cage. He said, “That’s a good question. I have no idea yet, but maybe one of the assassins from ‘Bullet Train’.”

    Mike Mizanin’s physique and built are similar to the character of Johnny Cage. He shared that he’s been training for the role just in case he gets lucky enough to get the call. Talking on Ryan Satin’s ‘Out of Character‘ podcast, he said that he saw his name trending worldwide when Cage did not make an appearance on ‘Mortal Kombat.’ “I have been working on my splits. I’ve been working on my kicks. As soon as I saw that Mortal Kombat was out and there was no Johnny Cage yet and my name was literally trending worldwide No. 1, ‘We want Miz as Johnny Cage,’ I was like, ‘If they want that to happen, I need to basically make sure that I am prepared and ready that if that opportunity presents itself, then I will be ready and focused. I will do everything in my power to hopefully get that part if the opportunity presents itself.”

    He also added, “I have an immense work ethic, and whatever it takes, I will be there to try and do it. And if I don’t get it, that’s okay too. But I hope the person that does get it will put in the same amount of work and dedication and give the fans exactly what they want because I know what I want out of Johnny Cage. I really do.”
