The kast includes Joe Taslim (Sub Zero), Hiroyuki Sanada (Scorpion), Tadanobu Asano (Raiden), Chin Han (Shang Tsung), Ludi Lin (Liu Kang), Jessica McNamee (Sonya Blade), Josh Lawson (Kano), Mehcad Brooks (Jax), Max Huang (Kung Lao), Sisi Stringer (Mileena), and Lewis Tan (TBA).
Let the judgements BEGIN!
Mortal Kombat is being directed by Simon McQuoid, who appears to have only worked on commercials so far, but nobody is looking for art from a Mortal Kombat movie. I thought they’d at least get a decent stunt coordinator, but Kyle Gardiner has previously worked on things like Aquaman, The Wolverine, and Thor: Ragnarok; nothing with a martial arts focus. I don’t have a great feeling about this, but you never know.
