Billy Butcher appears to be swapping his knives for his fists (though he doesn’t truly use knives on The Boys, however you perceive what I’m saying right here). The Boys actor Karl Urban will reportedly be becoming a member of the upcoming Mortal Kombat sequel, in line with The Wrap.
City is anticipated to play Johnny Cage, the cocky motion film star with a expertise for martial arts, who was teased on the finish of 2021’s Mortal Kombat. Cage first appeared within the authentic 1992 launch of Mortal Kombat and has appeared in practically each iteration of the sport and its 1995 movie adaptation. The favored character was famously neglected of the primary installment, for concern that he would overpower the remainder of the film. So now he’s anticipated to overpower the sequel.
Because of his larger-than-life film star character, followers had been pulling for a Ryan Reynolds-type to play Cage within the upcoming adaptation, however he’s busy enjoying another vigilante jerk. City isn’t any stranger to pairing his battle scenes with sarcastic one-liners, so this casting is smart! City has additionally lent his crime-fighting abilities to Thor: Ragnarok and Star Trek, so he may as nicely seize one other franchise by the neck after season 4 of The Boys wrapped early last month.
The installment is scheduled to start filming in Australia from June to September. The identical crew from the primary movie shall be returning, with Simon McQuoid again as director. Though a number of of the principle characters from the primary movie have been killed (it’s within the title, in any case), McQuoid confirmed that loss of life isn’t really permanent within the universe, so whoever can return will. All you must do is restart the sport and also you get extra lives! Everybody is aware of this.
