Johnny Cage teases a new version ‘Mortal Kombat’In now-deleted tweet

Andrew Bowen, actor behind Johnny Cage Mortal Kombat 10 and Mortal Kombat 11, has seemingly teased a new Mortal Kombat project – before swiftly deleting the evidence.

As reported by GamesRadar, Bowen took to both Twitter Instagram to share a short video of himself arriving at Warner Bros studios, featuring music and a quote from 1988 martial arts movie Bloodsport, which directly inspired the original pitch for Mortal Kombat.

Beyond that, Johnny Cage himself is a reference to Bloodsport star Jean-Claude Van Damme.

This might all feel like a bit of a reach but shortly after it was first reported, Bowen deleted both the Tweet and the Instagram post, pretty much confirming the rumours that he’s currently working on something Mortal Kombat related.
