MK Animated Production Rumored With Cast List

Fans have waited eagerly for a new live-action Mortal Kombat movie, but if an unverified report by pop culture site Revenge of The Fan is to be believed, animation may be the next narrative destination for the series.

The site, which recently correctly broke news of DC Entertainment features based on Batman: The Long Halloween and Superman: Red Son, alleges Warner Bros animation has cast actors for an upcoming Mortal Kombat feature, which may be released as a two-part adventure.

Rumored voice talent includes: Joel McHale (Community) and Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter), known for their live-action roles in television and film, with well known voice acting regulars like Fred Tatasciore (Voltron), Grey Griffin (Young Justice), Darin DePaul (Justice League Action), and Robin Atkin (Voltron), also attached in unknown roles.

Fans will also note the inclusion of familiar Mortal Kombat voices in the cast list: Patrick Seitz and Steve Blum voiced Scorpion and Sub-Zero respectively as recently as Mortal Kombat X. The voice of Kevin Michael Richardson could be heard in the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie as Goro.

Speculation from RTF and fans has naturally gravitated toward Carpenter and McHale assuming types as the voices of Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage. No story details are rumored in the report, but with word there will be no tie-in comics for Mortal Kombat 11, it may be speculated the animated film bridges the gap from Mortal Kombat X to the new game, released April this year.

While it must be stressed this report addresses unsubstantiated rumor; an apparent upturn in production of animated features by Warner Brothers coincides with the recent launch of the DC Universe streaming service, and reported forecast of a new WarnerMedia platform, as well.

Mortal Kombat has gone animated before: In 2016, John Tobias unearthed a hand-painted character cel from the short-lived Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm cartoon. Warner Brothers also included the dubious stand-alone animated feature The Journey Begins with their blu-ray movie release.

Fans have been waiting for a theatrical return for Mortal Kombat pretty much since Annihilation disappointed 21 years ago. Producer James Wan brought new hope when he joined the project in 2015, but there've been few significant updates since 2016 reports a director was attached.

Fans may've been hoping the announcement of a Mortal Kombat 11 video game sequel might move things along, but it seems unlikely. The Aquaman director commented on the status of the MK movie during a junket for Warner Brother's latest superhero blockbuster, telling Heroic Hollywood that budget, and a drive to "do the film right", will take time.
