I was quite young when I watched them first time around, but that scene in the first movie where the heroes are talking with Raiden on the boat at night? I didn’t need an adults eye for detail to know that the stars were lightbulbs and that the ocean was a dark tarp they’d thrown over the floor and walls. At least the movie was below budget. If it even had a budget, that is.
However, it seems as though we can possibly expect our beloved franchise to get the movie it deserves next year. Here’s 12 actors we would like to see cast for Mortal Kombat 2017.
Liu Kang – Daniel Wu
Daniel Wu could play fan-favourite and main hero Liu Kang. Wu currently plays the role of Sunny in AMC’s Into the Badlands and is a very notable figure in the Chinese movie industry. Some even refer to him as the young Donnie Yen, even though he’s 41 and Donnie Yen is 52.
Kano – Manu Bennett
Manu Bennett is no slouch in the acting business. He’s starred in everything from The Hobbit (he played Azog the Defiler), to the Arrow TV series, Spartacus, and even the Shanara Chronicles. Bennett is set to play Kano in the upcoming film, and he looks like a pretty good fit. Hopefully all that experience as an Orc in The Hobbit could prepare him for Kano’s extensive bio-mechanical enhancements.
