There’s a Mortal Kombat animated film on the way, and Warner Bros. expects it to release before the end of June, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
The film is called Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge. The voice cast stars Patrick Seitz as Scorpion. Seitz voiced Scorpion in Mortal Kombat X and is Tygra and Mumm-Ra in Cartoon Network’s upcoming Thundercats Roar.
Other cast include Joel McHale (Community, and co-host of 2013’s VGX) as Johnny Cage; Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter) as Sonya Blade; Jordan Rodrigues as Lui Kang; Steve Blum as Sub-Zero and David B. Mitchell as Raiden.
Two producers with animated Batman experience are helming the project: Rick Morales (Batman vs. Two-Face) and Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight). NetherRealm Studios’ Ed Boon is aboard as kreative konsultant.
A live action, feature-length Mortal Kombat reboot, from New Line Cinema, is planned to release March 5, 2021.
Mortal Kombat 11 is the series’ current title; it’s about to deliver the fifth of six promised premium DLC fighters for its season pass, namely, The Joker.
