Last October during NYCC, it was announced that a fourth Mortal Kombat Legends from Warner Bros. Animation was in the works spotlighting fan-favorite character Johnny Cage voiced by Joel McHale. Courtesy of an IGN Exclusive, not only was the first image revealed but so were details including the cast and crew for Mortal Kombat Legends: Cage Match.

Official synopsis below:

Neon lights… Suits with shoulder pads… Jumping from explosions in slow motion… In 1980s Hollywood, action star Johnny Cage (Joel McHale) is looking to become an A-list actor. But when his costar, Jennifer (Jennifer Grey), goes missing from set, Johnny finds himself thrust into a world filled with shadows, danger, and deceit.

As he embarks on a bloody journey, Johnny quickly discovers the City of Angels has more than a few devils in its midst. He faces off against a sinister secret society plotting a nefarious scheme, but the brutal fight against the bloodthirsty warriors of the Netherrealm is just beginning.

Can Johnny, alongside other Kombat legends, save humanity…and, more importantly, his career?
