Mortal Kombat Co-Creator Tweets Kenshi Fantasy Casting

Universal Pictures' 2013 martial arts fantasy 47 Ronin may have come and gone with devastatingly little fanfare -- but it seems its samurai star Keanu Reeves has caught the eye of Ed Boon. The Mortal Kombat franchise co-creator tweeted his fantasy kombat kasting, endorsing the actor as a "great" option for Kenshi.


"You know who would be great to play as Kenshi in an 3rd Mortal Kombat movie?..." - @noobde

This hasn't been the only Kenshi reference coming from the Mortal Kombat X Creative Director's feed, of late.

A behind-the-scenes photo from the motion capture studio seemed to point a fairly blatant, telekinetic finger in the direction of Kenshi's return inclusion. We'd comfortably hazard a guess now is as good time as any to read double meaning into Boon's tweets: a November reveal - a reasonable possibility.

Much as a sword-wielding, samurai-fighting Keanu Reeves might be an MKX clue of convenience -- the casting suggestion isn't without its merit! It was downright impossible to escape Keanu/Kenshi fan casting as early as 2003, thanks largely to the global release of trilogy finale: The Matrix Revolutions.

A bloodied, blindfolded Reeves [pictured right] drew instant comparisons to 2002 Deadly Alliance newcomer: "Blind" Kenshi. He'd even developed a Wi-Fi pseudo telekinesis to support the coincidence!

We won't make too much of Boon's intended endorsement, but with Warner Brothers announcing expansions that include a new live-action Mortal Kombat webseries - the prospects of a feature film are ready for fresh discussion.

Of course, you know what else Warner Brothers owns, don't you? The Matrix trilogy. A guest character as belated celebration for the 15th anniversary of the first film, perhaps?...

Looks like we will most likely see Kenshi as our next reveal. Pretty cool.

I've been thinking this for the past several weeks. If the next reveal isn't Kenshi, it'd definitely be an epic trolling effort from Ed.

Who wants to bet this is all a giant misdirection from Boon.

Kenshi being revealed now? Possibly. But the picture of the mocap session? Can't see them faking that.

I'm leaning towards that possibility :B
