Is Kitana in the Ready Player One Teaser Trailer?

Mortal Kombat still has a while to go before it finds its way back to the big screen, but a teaser trailer for 2018 movie Ready Player One may have given fans something to get excited about! Watch the trailer below and see if you can spot which cameo got MK Online staff talking.

It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment in a trailer replete with them. The sequence begins at the 1:30 mark, throwing characters into slow motion action in the middle and foreground. Slightly obscured by smoke and darkness, firing some kind of laser cannon is a character very closely resembling Kitana.

Ordinarily we wouldn't be jumping at Mortal Kombat shaped shadows, but Ready Player One tells the story of a dystopian future where society's only escape from grim reality is an interactive virtual reality system. Inspired by the 2011 novel by Ernest Cline, the film has been called the "holy grail of pop culture", with the main character's main interests rooted in popular properties of the 1980s.

The web of reference comes thick and fast in the trailer, ranging from the DeLorean car from Back to the Future - to the towering robot from The Iron Giant. Examples both of the licensing power brought to the film by Warner Brothers and director Steven Spielberg.

Warner Brothers has owned Mortal Kombat since acquiring Midway Games in 2010. Fans will also have a much easier time spotting other WB licensed characters, such as Harley Quinn and Freddy Kreuger. Click the thumbnails below to enlarge their appearances in the trailer, and/or examine the suspected Kitana sighting.

If the character in the trailer is indeed Mortal Kombat's Edenian Princess, she seems to be a fairly faithful recreation of the most recent Mortal Kombat X incarnation [see more]. Itself no mean feat, given the reluctance of filmmakers to render characters exactly as they are in the games. Kitana's last live-action appearance was in the webseries sequel Mortal Kombat: Legacy.

Ready Player One is currently scheduled to be released theatrically March 30, 2018. Do you think Kitana will be there when it hits the big screen?

I'm not entirely convinced to be honest, but it is possible. Harley and maybe Scorpion at the beginning was more obvious.

It definitely looks like Warner Bros. is using every fantasy character int heir library for this. As accurately pointed out above, MK9 Freddy was there, among others. The Iron Giant stood out the most.

Know what this means though, right?

Noooooooooo.

I think if you watch the video Harley is walking with Deathstroke or maybe Deadshot?

In the close up image there's so many details that make it seem pretty clear it is Kitana.

The hair pins. The forehead jewel and mask. The metal shoulder piece and the chest/torso. The leg wear and general outline.

But why have a bazooka and not throw her fans?

Interesting.

Nice to see a nod to her though.

Kitana fighting alongside Freddy Krueger and Duke Nukem...

I don't know how to feel about this.
