    I'm okay with brand new character so they can have a lead that's maybe more par for the course in terms of what movie goers or focus groups may expect but I hope they don't go too far with this family and his motivation and whatnot. I just don't want them to ruin the tone with too much father-daughter love, for example. A character like that could help ground it in reality a little more and make the over the top stuff more significant, as long as the rest is still MK I'm down with it. Another legendary boxer from Philly I guess. That could help expand the lore a bit.

    Just make it happen!

    No. Just No. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel. This reeks of pandering.

    MK is beyond Rich with Lore and has more than enough Interesting Characters. This has to be Fake. Liu Kang and Ninja in the same sentence come on...Raiden 14...

    Why can't you focus on Scorpion and Sub-Zero? Or maybe even have Kitana and Milena be the focus? Or Bi Han and Kuai Liang? Or the Fall of Shang Tsung? The rise of Quan Chi? Hell even Kenshi and Takeda if you want that Fatherly vibe? You could even tell the Hanzo Hasashi and Takeda surrogate fatherly story? What's even wrong with Johnny Cage and Cassie Cage story?

    Why not even have a series of movies like DC and Marvel?

    This is by far the worst thing they could have done it's beyond bad it's got that stench of Baytles bad...

    I read about this news few days ago but not the story(I think it's bs I hope it is honestly) and seriously, the article states "klassics" but no Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Reptile or Ermac? Fail.:rolleyes: and I had to [email protected] the fact that Raiden is 14, I mean I get he can be anyone virtually and any age being an immortal God, but why 14? :confused:

    So assuming that this is real, I think it would be cool IF it was executed properly. The "If" is the big part here.

    We have already seen the Liu Kang/Sonya/Johnny team up before, we have gotten movies, TV shows, comics, etc, that has main MK characters as the focus but it never really works out.

    Making a new character that is more "real" and relatable, then making him the audience's window into the Mortal Kombat world could work out. Having a character who has a daughter and family in a realistic world would be better in terms of movie leads than a character like Liu Kang, Sub-Zero, Johnny, whatever.

    But I do think that his is either fake or incomplete. They have Raiden's name being "Jin" and he is 14 can't be right, especially if Raiden is still leading Earthrealm warriors. It sounds like they have Raiden and a young Kung Jin mixed up or something.

    Liu Kang being a ninja instead of a shaolin monk warrior isn't right. No Sub-Zero, Scorpion, etc, doesn't make any sense, and so on.

    I'm hoping it ISN'T fake and it's just incomplete, because I actually like the idea of introducing a new character as the lead.

    One more thing: they noted that a reason why Sub-Zero, Scorpion or other characters aren't listed is because they aren't looking for actors, but instead professional martial artists to play those characters.

    Also the last time we heard about the MK in terms of story details, apparently it was going to be about a guy who works at a supermarket and outworld invades and it's in the perspective of just a random guy. It would be kinda of an apocalyptic movie but you would see MK characters and stuff. Not sure if it was true though, if it was, this sounds way better than that at the very least.

    This is trash, wtf is this? This has got to be fake, for one Drahmin and Nitara probably aren't going to appear in anything MK ever again, let alone a goddamn movie. They also got Jax's name wrong, who the hell is Jax BRIDGES? lol. Where's the source on this, anyway?

    Do you know why the first MK movie was well received and to this day is still considered one of the best game to cinema adaptations? because they were faithful to the game's lore, at least for the most part, they didn't try to re-invent things, is that too hard to do?

    Fujin when?

    If Fujin comes in, I'm maining him for a change after being a long time Sub Zero main.

    About Kabal, I don't think he became evil. He was a cop (I think) seeking revenge for what they did to him, much like Deadpool.

  22. The main premise of the average struggling wodowed boxer caught in a supernatural fate of the Earth to the death tournament sounds stupid as hell. Reminds of the struggling charaters in Transformers and The Power rangers. Also T3. Everyone knows how those turned out. I predict a big disappointment, unless there's a really big twist.

    I mean, I have no stake in the movie either way. Rumors have been floating around for years, it's likely to never be made. Just pointing out how fake this shit sounds, lol.
