In mid-April 2021, it was released in theaters Mortal Kombat, a project at the hands of New Line Cinema and NetherRealm Studios. It is a reboot of the old tapes that were released 26 years ago.
The tape received a 54% performance according to specialized critics, while fans gave it a score of 86%. It was not the box office success they expected but they will still continue with the adaptation of a sequel.
The “Mortal Kombat 2” project will be written by Jeremy Slater, who has worked with Marvel and Disney on the script for Moon Knight, the Avengers phase 4 series that will premiere on Disney Plus.
The plot has not yet been revealed. But the story is expected to continue with the rivalry between the two most popular characters in video games: Sub-Zero and Scorpion. Perhaps we will see new villains.
The reason why Greg Russo, screenwriter of the first installment, will not continue with the project is not yet known. Last year, he told the press that he had several exciting ideas to explore on the big screen.
We still don’t know what Mortal Kombat 2 will be about. Or who it will include. But, when we last left the protagonists, Shang Tsung (Chin Han) was unfazed by his defeats and eager to carry out his tournament plans. Lord Raiden (Tadanobu Asano) gave his men orders to find fresh champions to protect the Earthrealm. And Cole set off for Hollywood in search of Johnny Cage. Johnny Cage is a well-known character from the games. One of the original Mortal Kombat characters from the arcade game.
Overall, things appear to be properly set up for a sequel. Raiden’s troops will encounter new game characters. Johnny Cage will be cast in the film. We’ll almost certainly see a tournament. That’s all there is to Mortal Kombat 2. Hopefully, we’ll learn more about the upcoming film’s premise and development shortly. We have one movie and a long history of games to keep us occupied till then. It’s a win-win situation for everyone. As it were, a faultless triumph.
