While official information has yet to be confirmed, it looks like character descriptions have been revealed for the Mortal Kombat reboot movie that is currently in production. Sadly though, it sounds like it won’t follow the same storyline or characters from the video games!
According to an exclusive report from ThatHashTagShow, they’ve acquired a list of characters that will be in the reboot movie. The movie will focus on a new character named Cole Turner. He will be the main character while a 14 year old is being eyed to play Raiden the God of Thunder!
Other characters listed include: Kano, Sonya Blade, Mileena, Jax, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Shang Tsung, Drahmin, Kabal, Nitara, Reiko, The Overseer, Emily, Sophia and Jess.
It’s interesting to see that there are no mentions of Scorpion and Sub-Zero being in the reboot movie. If the movie does not have any ninjas, I’m pretty sure many fans will be angry because they are the two most popular characters from the MK franchise. Leaving them out is like making a Street Fighter movie without Ken and Ryu!
