A new poster for Warner Bros.’ Mortal Kombat puts Hiroyuki Sanada’s Scorpion against Joe Taslim’s Sub-Zero.
While the internet goes crazy over the brutal first trailer for Mortal Kombat, a new poster has arrived for the film, focusing on the battle between Scoprion and Sub-Zero. The pair are often pitted against each other for being two sides of the same coin, Scorpion wielding fire-like abilities while Sub-Zero commands ice. Sure, the recent trailer revealed the likes of Goro, Mileena and Jax Briggs, but Scorpion vs. Sub-Zero really stole the show.
