An animated movie based on Mortal Kombat may be in development.
Ed Boon’s and John Tobias’ own legendary fighting game, Mortal Kombat, seems to be entering in the realm of animated movies such as the ones that Marvel and DC make for their characters. In a recent report made by website Revenge Of The Fans, they’re apparently not only certain that an animated movie featuring the likes of Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Johnny Cage or Sonya Blade is in development, they also reveal that there is already a cast for the movie.
Community‘s Joel McHale and Dexter‘s Jennifer Carpenter lead the rumoured cast. Revenge Of The Fans also include Darin DePaul (Spider-Man PS4, Justice League Action), Fred Tatasciore (Avengers Assemble, Voltron), Grey Griffin (Young Justice, Avengers Assemble), Ike Amadi (Avengers Assemble, Trollhunters), Kevin Michael Richardson (Justice League vs The Fatal Five), Patrick Seitz (Mortal Kombat games), Robin Atkin Downes (Disenchantment, Voltron), Steve Blum (Mortal Kombat games) and Jordan Rodrigues.
The report also theorizes that McHale will be Johnny Cage, Carpenter will be Sonya Blade and Rodrigues will probably be Liu Kang, though nothing has been confirmed just yet. We’ve had a lot of Mortal Kombat video games thoughout the years and in fact, Mortal Kombat 11 is coming out this year. What we haven’t had is an animated version of Mortal Kombat in quite some time. Barring the video games, 1996 was the last time fans saw Raiden and company as cartoons with Mortal Kombat: Defenders of The Realm. Fans also saw the first Mortal Kombat live-action movie in 1995 and its sequel in 1997 called Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding the new animated movie as soon as more information becomes available. What do you think about a Mortal Kombat animated movie being released? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!

Warner Bros. and DC Films have many projects currently being developed including The Batman, The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Supergirl, New Gods, and Nightwing.
The DCEU continues this month with Aquaman which is now playing and will be followed by Shazam! on April 5, 2019, Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Aquaman is now playing. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the current DC cinematic universe as we learn it.
