An exciting new character will join the cast of Mortal Kombat VI in the sequel, which concludes with a cliffhanger. Here is what we currently know.
There will be a sequel to Warner Bros.’ 2021 reboot of Mortal Kombat, as well as an entire franchise. The 2021 Mortal Kombat movie’s ending set up a sequel with fan-favorite character Johnny Cage, who was controversially left out of the reboot. Mortal Kombat 2 is expected to bring him back.
As the third live-action Mortal Kombat movie, Mortal Kombat (2021) fixes many of the problems that were present in the first film and the more problematic sequel, Annihilation (1997), which was a cult classic at the time. With an R-rating, the 2021 film delivers on its promise, adhering to a mostly faithful adaptation model that brings iconic characters to life, while also expanding the lore with the introduction of new mysterious character Cole Young, who was the subject of a great deal of speculation before the film’s release.
Considering Mortal Kombat’s rich lore and storyline, multiple sequels and spin-offs seem a foregone conclusion, especially given the abundance of potential source material. There is now official confirmation that there will be at least one more Mortal Kombat movie, which is good news for fans of the franchise and Simon McQuoid’s film. Every detail about Mortal Kombat 2 has been covered here.
Is Mortal Kombat 2 Happening?
Mortal Kombat 2 will be released in January 2022, according to a report by Deadline. Now that Mortal Kombat 2 scriptwriter Jeremy Slater has been hired, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. have confirmed that they are taking the necessary steps to keep the series alive.
No other deals have been made for the sequel yet, so director Simon McQuoid and the core cast of Mortal Kombat 2021 will have to come up with something on their own if they want to return for Mortal Kombat 2.
Mortal Kombat 2 Story
Shang Tsung intends to use his Outworld allies to thwart a fair Mortal Kombat tournament and his own inevitable defeat after the conclusion of Mortal Kombat. The reason for this is that Cole Young and the other Earthrealm champions who have survived are sent out to find more champions, starting with series favourite Johnny Cage, who Young tracks to Hollywood.
To sooth his wounds and strengthen his own team, Shang Tsung is expected to return to the realm of his ancestors to recuperate and perhaps revive his most feared warrior, Sub-Zero. A Mortal Kombat tournament has been confirmed for a Mortal Kombat 2 film, which will no doubt please many fans who were left perplexed by its absence.
Mortal Kombat 2 Cast
Lewis Tan’s Cole Young, Jessica McNamee’s Sonya Blade, Mehcad Brooks’ Jax, Tadanobu Asano’s Raiden, Ludi Lin’s Liu Kang, and possibly Hiroyuki Sanada’s Scorpion will all return in the sequel to Mortal Kombat. Scorpion will almost certainly return if Joe Taslim does.
As for Chin Han’s Shang Tsung, he is likely to remain the main antagonist. WWE star The Miz, on the other hand, is hoping to land the role of Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat 2. When Ryan Reynolds was first mentioned as a possible candidate to play Cage, he turned the speculation into a hilarious commercial for his Mint Mobile cell phone service. A Hollywood bad boy will be a main character in the sequel, as has been confirmed.
Mortal Kombat 2 Release Date
It took Mortal Kombat a long time to make it to the big screen, and then Covid put it on hold. I doubt a sequel would take as long to get to the big screen again. Even with a longer post-production period than McQuoid’s initial four-month filming schedule, a reasonable turnaround of a couple of years is not surprising based on the original production.
So 2023 isn’t out of the question, either. Rumors are now circulating that multiple Mortal Kombat sequels and spinoffs are in the works, alongside the already confirmed Mortal Kombat 2. So why is Mortal Kombat 2 likely to be a top priority for Warner Bros.? Mostly because of HBO Max, which has had one of the biggest launches in the service’s history.
