Kevin Tancharoen, director of the upcoming live action Mortal Kombat digital series, has just revealed a photo of Baraka via his Twitter account:
At first, Kevin playfully teased, "Hmmm. TeppanYaki chef?", but then acknowledged that another user who had guessed "Tarkatan?" was actually correct.
There are some noticeable visual differences between this interpretation of Baraka and the one shown in the trailer. For instance, the blades have a rusty red appearance to them. It is unknown at this moment if Baraka's storyline will resemble the one from the games, in which he comes from a nomadic race of human/demon hybrids known as Tarkatans, or if it will follow what was shown to us in the Rebirth trailer [full story], in which the mad Dr. Allen Zane filed his teeth and implanted blades into his own arms. It is also unknown at this point if Lateef Crowder, who played Baraka in the Rebirth trailer, will be reprising his role in the digital series.
