'Mortal Kombat' Director Talks Johnny Cage & Sequel Plans

The new movie Mortal Kombat is out now and the film’s director Simon McQuoid is opening up about his possible plans for a sequel.

The popular character Johnny Cage is not featured in the movie, but a moment in the final scene teases that he might be the focus of a sequel.

“Sequels are a bit tricky because you can’t totally ignore them, because that wouldn’t be a smart move, but none of us used the ‘s-word.’ We’d never talk about it in any depth whatsoever because we feel like we have to put all our energy into this film. That being said, if the fans want another one, that’s not for us to decide; that’s for the fans to decide,” Simon told Variety. “Then, we need a couple of joiner pieces that we know can lead us somewhere because there’s a treasure trove of stuff that’s just sitting there.”

Mehcad Brooks Reveals His Girlfriend's Reaction to His 'Mortal Kombat' Body Transformation

Mehcad Brooks‘ incredibly buff body is on display throughout his new movie Mortal Kombat and he’s opening up about how his body transformation affected his relationship.

The 40-year-old actor, who is best known for his roles on True Blood and Supergirl, made an appearance on The Talk on Friday (April 23) to talk about the film.

“I went from eating vegan to eating a small organic farm, more or less,” Mehcad said about preparing to play Jax. “I was doing boxing training five days a week and I think the one thing about gaining that much weight that fast, I gained 45 pounds…your jaw hurts because you’re chewing, you’re processing so much food.”

Mehcad added, “I was gaining weight so fast, I was like falling up the stairs. I was super clumsy. None of my clothes fit. It was too much too fast.”

Co-host Elaine Welteroth asked, “How did your girlfriend feel about that transformation for yours?”

“In some ways she hated it because I guess I’m not as a calm sleeper as I thought I was. So, I’d roll over on her, but I was the size of a baby elephant… she was like ‘get off of me…I can’t breathe, you’re on me’…It was like wearing a muscle suit,” he replied.
