‘Mortal Kombat’: Lewis Tan May Have Just Sneakily Revealed His Role In The Reboot

Lewis Tan Mortal Kombat Sub-Zero

Did Lewis Tan just reveal that he’s playing Kung Lao in the live-action Mortal Kombat movie?

Lewis Tan recently talked about working on New Line Cinema’s Mortal Kombat movie, but it looks like he might’ve cryptically revealed his role in the film in a clever way. The actor took to Twitter to reminisce about his father working on film sets, and playing on the crash mats that stuntmen use. But Mortal Kombat fans have quickly theorised what he’s actually referencing.

In his tweet, Lewis Tan included a photo of himself on the crash mats onset explaining that he’s now leading a film instead of just playing on the mats. But his cross legged position is the exact same pose that Mortal Kombat character Kung Lao sits in when he meditates. So many fans believe that it was Lewis Tan’s way of revealing his role in the new Mortal Kombat movie. Take a look at his tweet below.

Do you think Lewis Tan is playing Kung Lao in the film or is he just playing with the fans? Let us know in the comments.

The Mortal Kombat franchise launched with the first video game in 1992 and has since expanded to include several sequels. Plot details for the new Mortal Kombat film are currently unknown, though the video games center on a roster of characters from different realms who fight for supremacy.

The video game was first adapted into a Mortal Kombat feature film directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. The film earned a worldwide total of $122 million and is widely regarded as one of the better adaptations of a video game.

Written by Greg Russo, Mortal Kombat stars Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Mehcad Brooks as Jax, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Sisi Stringer as Mileena, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, and Lewis Tan in an undisclosed role.

Mortal Kombat is scheduled to be released in theaters on March 5, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news on Lewis Tan and the upcoming movie!
