Goro / Shao Kahn cast? (Possible spoiler)
10/25/2019 02:02 AM EST

Sorry if this is old news, but looking at recent fb activity of former WWE-wrestler, Nathan Jones, it looks very possible he is involved in this movie. He could just be a grunt, or cannon-fodder, but given his size and frame, he could easily be one of those two.

You can check on Nathan Jones instagram, facebook page and even his linkedin profile that is currently working on MK. I would say he'd play Goro but we'll see.

I found it. Yea he only posted it like once in Early October and I don't see anything from him of his adventure. I believe that is when they would have been doing studio work.

In this film, Goro is 9 foot and an evil version of a famous Marvel hero. So it's not quite out of the question but if your guess is basing it on the pics with him wearing a mongolian ponytail, those are from a Chinese movie he has done.

Evil version of Hulk? Do you mean he transforms?

Right but Nathan also liked someone suggesting he was Baraka. It is very reasonable to assume he is Goro but this is NOT 100% confirmed... nor has the appearance of Goro been confirmed...

I was thinking Baraka too, but then wasn't sure if Baraka would be included in this movie (assume he would as there has to be canon fodder, and Outworld needs more warriors). Just went with the big two as you'd assume they learnt their errors from the attitude era of Goro ;)

Just so long as they don't get NJ to break up the 3-count on the Undertaker, we'll be fine ;)

Wasn't Goro in the original script? If they had Baraka in it they would have hired a martial artist, Jones is a wrestler and if they had Shao Khan they would have picked a real actor so he's either playing Goro or someone else.

Baraka is effectively a grunt. Given they are trying to establish an MK movie universe, he is expendable and not that interesting (wasn't he Shang Tsung's chaplain in one of the early lores going around in the 90s?)

Jones is a martial artist. He's trained a few different styles, some he's shown in MMA, some he's shown in movies fighting alongside Michael Jai White, etc. Baraka moves like Blanka in the SF world. He's not an aerialist. He's a manbeast.

YO! THAT WAS MY TWEET! Thanks for sharing it here! I do think he's playing Goro but an anonymous source who has the 11/18 script suggested Reiko. I guess we'll just have to wait and see!:)

Don't read too much into heights when it comes to this film. Raiden is 7' tall yet they have a 5' actor playing him? Mileena is Asian and she is cast wrong as well. There are so many things going wrong with this film I'm scared for this film. On IMDB someone is credited as an Audience Fight Scene person? As far as Nathan Jones when you look at the vast number of characters he has portrayed it is likely he'll stick close to that same character type. However since he is 7' and Shao Kahn supposedly is 7' then I'd say he's Kahn.

Mileena isn't asian - has never been Asian. She's an alien. She's a cross-bred clone too - so don't say "because Kitana..." because that's not how genetics works.

Raiden isn't 7' tall. Even in the games he isn't. But the actor playing him is in fact 6' tall.

I'm not going to spoil it as to whether Goro is in the 11/18 draft or not...

PLEASE USE THE SPOILER TAG IF REFERENCING THE 11/18 SCRIPT. I am not confirming or denying he is or isn't in that script, I have it too, but just saying...
