Ed Boon Posts MK11 Johnny Cage Teaser?
Have you heard about the bird?

It's been a while since grand pubah Ed Boon has gotten down and dirty in teaser territory, but the drought seems to be over with his most recent tweet. A partial Mortal Kombat 11 screenshot shows a mystery fighter giving the finger, with what appears to be a crack creeping across the fourth wall of the screen. It's not a lot to go on, but all signs seem to point toward the highly anticipated return of Johnny Cage. Read on:

The irreverent hand gesture has all the hallmarks of the ballbusting action star who debuted in the first Mortal kombat. This could be a glimpse into one of his cinematic Krushing Blow moves, or simpla win pose. Boon's tweet comes with the added quote, "Who hired this guy....WTF?"

There's been no specific indication of Johnny Cage joining the MK11 playable cast just yet, but we think we've already spotted him in two official trailers. He was loitering in the background of a Special Forces interior arena in the first gameplay reveal trailer. He can also be spotted tying up with Sub-Zero on a monitor shown twice during the MK11 Evolution featurette. Both examples depict Cage in a subdued vest and long sleeve shirt similar to that seen in Boon's screenshot [see below].


With the likes of Sonya Blade and Kano already announced - can Johnny Cage be far behind? Join the speculation and tell us what you hope to see on the Mortal Kombat 11 forum!

The Science of MK Ep 1: Sub-Zero's Head Shatter
Webseries debuts first episode.

What would really happen if Sub-Zero froze your head and punched the hell out of it? That's the question the first episode of The Science of Mortal Kombat sets out to ask. Watch:

Fans of science-entertainment may remember a similar test by TV's Mythbusters, but the team from Nerdist's Because Science have enlisted the aid of reigning UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier to ensure the perfect punch fo their cross-promotional experiment.

McFarlane Preview Upcoming MK11 Figures

As if the teasers left anything to doubt, McFarlane Toys have previewed their upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 action figures at the New York Toy Fair.

Unfortunately, there was nothing plastic to be seen in the modest McFarlane Mortal Kombat display. Pre-rendered images of Scorpion and Sub-Zero promote the future toyline, confirming suspicions that the series will lead with frequently featured franchise mascots. Toyark have extensive photos from the event, icluding mock packaging for Scorpion.

Presumptions shouldn't be made about the complete character roster, or future of the action figure series, but some information can be gleaned from the event. These toys will be 7 inches, with Toyark reporting the line will have similar articulation to Fortnite toys. That means roughly 22 points of articulation.

Hong Kong manufacturer Storm Collectibles was also in New York, showcasing their offerings from the klassic Mortal Kombat roster. McFarlane Toys will retail much more affordably than the exotic imports. Fortnite 7" toys sell for $24.99.

Which MK11 characters do you hope to see join the McFarlane lineup? Share your action figures wishlist and join the discussion on the Media & Merchandise forum. Find out who's eligible by collecting info in the Mortal Kombat 11 forum!
