The 2021, R rated, Mortal Kombat adaptation hit the big screen as well as HBO Max on April 23, reviving mixed but majority positive reviews. The movie is targeted at long time fans of the video game franchise and dives into the lore behind the in game characters and events. Grossing a whopping $9 Million opening night and topping the box office. With the film being such a financial success, it’s only a matter of time before we are presented with a sequel. One character from the original beat ‘em up not feature in this new adaptation expected to make his debut in the sequel is Johnny Cage. Cage is an arrogant, and egotistical character from the Mortal Kombat franchise complete with leather jacket and douchebag sunglasses to boot. The question now is who will play this much beloved asshole in the film adaptation?

The Miz

For those unaware, who have more than likely been living under a rock for the last two decades, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin is a professional wrestler and two time Grand Slam Champion under the WWE banner. The Miz is also no stranger to the big screen, getting his start on MTV’s 10th season of The Real World before transitioning into his professional wrestling career where he has also found himself as the leading man of The Marine franchise, along with other films such as Christmas Bounty and Fighting with my Family. Following the release of Mortal Kombat The Miz took to Twitter, noticing the lack of one Johnny Cage, offering his likeness for the role.

Apart from his obvious acting and fighting chops, Miz bares a striking resemblance to Cage that is undeniable! Having been the perfect fit for the arrogant, egotistical, asshole fans love to hate for the better part of almost two decades now, Miz is seemingly the perfect for the role,Not to mention his apparent affection for the series, and fans seem to be rallying around this casting choice as well. Boss Logic, noted for making actor edits and adaptations for fantasy roles, even took to Twitter to post a non-edited picture of Miz claiming no edit was needed, “The guy is literally him”.

Ryan Reynolds

The Miz is not the only person fans are creating buzz around however. The man responsible for reviving “The Merc with a Mouth” has been in heavy consideration amongst the Mortal Kombat fan base as well. Reynolds has proven he has the ability to play a natural, lovable jackass who is simultaneously a badass time and time again. Reynolds, never one to be left out of the loop on Twitter, took to the app amidst the speculation playing into the hype by posting a photo of himself as Cage to promote his partnership with phone provider, Mint.

Is COVID-19 From Spirit Halloween?

Like clockwork, as it begins to grow colder outside Spirit Halloween stores begin popping up all over the nation. The popular seasonal retailer makes its home in the empty husk of department stores past. It seems with every passing year Spirit Halloween gains more and more traction growing larger in both size and reach. In this life it would appear there are in fact three things certain: Death, Taxes, And Spirit Halloween finding an abandon building to pedal it’s wears.

Between the years of 2017 and 2019 the American economy began flourishing in ways that hadn’t been seen in several years prior. With a 2.1 GPD increase in the final quarter of 2019, according to, business in the US was strong. Now at this point you may be asking yourself, just what does the GDP have to do with Spirit Halloween, or even COVID-19 for that matter? Well it’s simple really, what is the only company that could possibly be harmed by a steady American economy, that’s right Spirit Halloween. Spirit Halloween thrives on the opportunity of moving into the buildings of businesses that have gone under. Meaning if the economy is stable and businesses are able to stay afloat, this poses a threat for the future of Spirit Halloween. Seeing this to be a career threatening issue, is it so unreasonable to think the higher ups at Spirit we’re willing to go to any depths necessary to ensure their future.

Since the introduction of the COVID-19 virus to The United States in late 2019 and through the first quarter of 2020, the GDP has dropped 5%. With an estimated 7.5 million small businesses facing the risk of shutting down (CNBC) Spirit Halloween’s location selection is looking ripe for the picking. Now how would a company such as Spirit Halloween go about being able to cover up such a massive pandemic,why by turning to what they know of course, bats. The initial story reported regarding the discovery of COVID-19 involved the consumption of a bat, otherwise recognizable as an icon of Halloween culture and commonly used influence for Spirit Halloween.

In a world full of uncertainty, panic, and speculation it would seem the only company in a better place coming out of the pandemic this coming fall would be Spirit Halloween. They may not have started or created the virus, but it would appear they have too much steak in the matter to not even be considered a possible link to the COVID-19 outbreak.
