Ryan Reynolds' Tweet

Ryan Reynolds responded to rumors linking him to Johnny Cage role in 'Mortal Kombat 2'.

The "Deadpool" star was bragging about Mint Mobile, the cellular service provider company which he co-owns, defeating its competitors on the list of best cell phone plans.

As for the "Mortal Kombat 2" casting rumors, Reynolds has been a popular pick to play Johnny Cage after the first movie hinted at his appearance in the hypothetical sequel. In the end of the martial arts fantasy film, Lewis Tan's Cole Young is heading off to Hollywood where he may bump into the movie star.

Producer Todd Garner has also confirmed Cage's appearance in the potential sequel and mentioned Reynolds as the kind of actor who might play the character. "Is it a cop out to all of a sudden have Ryan Reynolds - not him, but you know - as the lead felt a little disingenuous to me," he said when addressing Cage's exclusion in the first movie. "It's super easy to bring him in a big, bombastic, fun way in the second. And he deserves that as a character. I love these characters, so we thought hard about it."

"Mortal Kombat" has become the latest hit in North America box office following its release last week, debuting at No. 1 on the chart with $23.3 million despite not-so-glowing reviews from critics. The movie exceeded industry expectations with its opening gross and has accumulated $51.1 million worldwide.
