uhhh.......no, mka went althe way thro mortal kombat 3 ultimate, this one will pick up where it left off, and it would be cool if scorpion and quan chi fought, but i would hope neither one wins, because that would get rid of scorpion FOREVER, and i dont think that should happen.

Yes, but whatever it is, MKM:SZ, MKDA or MK4, Quan and Scorp are in all of them. So most likely we'll see them both. And most likely then, they will fight.

Just speculating.

Dude, UMK3 IS MK3.

There are just added characters.

MK:A followed the MK3 atmosphere.

Therefore the 3rd movie will probably follow MK4 to MKDA.

Actually, the story of Mk4 ISNT that important for a movie. They can, with no problem at all, skip Mk4 story and go to MKDA.

The ONLY important thing in Mk4, is the amulet, not even Shinok, and SINCE he was used in MKA, maybe that ment something, the way he was gone could mean 2 things:

1-He is trapped in hell.
2-Dead.

Now, I think people would rather see MKDA story on the big screan, I mean, its the best story of all the Mks! The army, the Dragon king, the alliance...everything is perfect!

First, many will start to say they need Mk4 to explain Scorpions and Quan Chis rivality, thats true, BUT, U dont need a 30 min. intro to explain that! If they skip to MKDA, anywhere in the movie, they could easily explain why is Scorpion after Quan Chi, how Quan Chi has the amulet and all the rest. This is some things I posted on the "Mk3 the movie" thread and what people replied:

Queve:

I think it will defenatly be based on MKDA (I mean, COME ON! 2 MILLION COPIES!!!!!!!!) and its going to rock. MKDA has more depth of story and all.
--------------------------------------------------
Some of the replies:

I think it's gonna be an odd amalgam of MK4 and MKDA. Without MK4, there would be no MKDA. MK4 is the basic set up.
---------------------------------------------
Everyone is saying that it's going to be based of MKDA because it's more successful then MK4. But think about it, without MK4, would any of MKDA make sense? Shinnok was barely touched on in MKA. If we hopped right into MKDA, who the hell is Quan Chi? What's with this amulet? How did he get into the Netherealm? How was Shang Tsung reserected? Too many unanswered questions, you'd have to know all about the games to understand it.
--------------------------------

I replied to them:

Without Mk4, they can actually do much. Remember the movie NEVER follows the storyline 100%.

At the beguining, they can easily explain who Quan Chi is, how he got the amulet mentioning something like he tricked Shinok and stoled it from him, but Quan Chi lived trapped in hell cause Shicok also betrayed him after he got teh false amulet, they can tell us who Shinok is in a short story and how he was defeated in MKA and destroyed or trapped for ever in some dimension.

Its all quite fast and easy, in Mk4 the only important things are Quan Chi and the amulet to understand the movie if its based on MKDA, and asuming they will (like always) not follow the game storyline 100% it will be all VERY easy.

About Tsung, there are A LOT of ways they can make him come back, they can show a scene were Quan Chi uses unforgiven black magic that only works once to resurrect the dead with an object he kept hidden that after being used, will burn in flames, they can mention some weird artefact that Tsung once created that could help him come back if things didnt go as planed, or even the amulet has the power to resurrect the dead only ONCE, and many more stuff.
------------------------------------------
Some one said:

1. Threshold said Liu wouldn't die.
2. MKDA sold 2 million copies. ...that somewhat matters?
3. The script was written a long time ago, before MKDA was out. True, they could've written another one, but is that likely? no.
4. MK4 was a big event, storyline wise. They cant just put an entire battle between Rayden and the warriors of Earth agaisn't Shinnok in a recap. Not to mention Quan Chi's relationship with Scorpion.

So what I mean to say Queve, is that MK3 will most likely NOT be based on MKDA.
---------------------------------------------
I replied:

1.That was a LONG time ago, now, things can change, and Im sure they know for sure that fans (most at least, a 95%) would like to see the heroe die, it gives the movie more potencial and interest AND that we are all bored with Liu wining and wining.....

2.Yes, why would they make a movie of a bad videogame when they can make it of a better one??? Im not saying mk4 is bad....but compared to the story of MkDA it REALLY SUCKS.

3.Yes its likely they could had change many things by now. I highly doubt they kept the script intact after knwoing what was MKDA about...

4.Like Ive said before, the only important things in Mk4 were Quan Chi and the amulet, in a quick flashback they can tell us everything related to the amulet and Scorpion finding out who Quan chi really was in hell....Read above.

So, there are MANY chances the movie can be based on MKDA.
-----------------------------------------------

He replied what most of U might be thinking:

No, Scorpion's character needs alot of work. His actual character hasn't really been introduced in the movies, we dont know squat about him. We dont know his origin, we dont know why he was enemies with the subby in the first movie. All the info about Scorpion cant just be explained in a recap and suddenly it all changes because he found out Quan Chi was the murderer.
----------------------------------------------

I said:

Yes it can! U dont need a 30 minutes introduction about Scorpions origin and all (or any character!). There could be a scene were Quan Chi tells about how Scorpion found out he was the real killer of his family, and not the misterious Ice warrior of the Lin Kei, and thats the reason Scorpions after him...THATS IT!, they dont need to focus on more then that or give us a whole flashback of poor Scorpions life. For example:

(Quan Chi talking to Scorpion before they finally fight)

Scorpion: U killed my family sorcerrer, U will pay for the death U cased and the torture Ive been put on....

Quan Chi: JAJAJAJA! Yes, all this time I was the true murder of your pathetic family and not the Lin Kei Ice warrior known as Sub-zero you fought long ago.......I must say, Im surprised U managed to escape the netherrealm following me...however, Im afraid only one of us will stay standing today....to bad it wont be U....spectre....

Scorpion: GET OVER HERE!!!!....

End....Thats enough info. They can do more of that with any other character letting the audience know WHY Scorpion is after Quan Chi... lets say Shang Tsung:

Quan Chi: There is a reason sorcerrer, why I have taken your soul out of the deepest of the pits of hell. You alone know the long forgotten black art of stealing and controling souls.

Shang Tsung: And what makes U think I will help U on whatever you are thinking I will? U may have used the ancient amulet of Shinok to escaoe and resurrect me from hell, but know that Uve done that....its of no use, the amulet only resurrects once....then, its usessless.

Quan Chi: Thats, what U think.

Then Quan Chi tells him all about the Dragon Kings army and how they can win Earth in A tournament of their own controling the army with the amulet.

Tsung: Very well. We will form an alliance like no other, and we will destroy Rayden and his mortals for once and for all....

Quan Chi: But we must be carefull not only for Raydens Mortals...Im being followed by the ninja spectre known as Scorpion. He has discovered that the true murder of his family was not the ice Lin Kei nija known as Sub-Zero, but me. Hes thristy for revenge, and I know more then anyone he wont stop till he destroys me....to bad things wont work his way....

Tsung: The spectre wont be a big problem, but we must get him out of the way....now, lets travel through the secret portal only controled by sorcerrers....Im dying to revenge my dead and use my fighting skills on the Immortal champion of Mortal Kombat......Liu Kang will die.

END...

See thats enough, what Im saying is that, they can explain all about Scorpion in a VERY easy and quick way not confusing the audience. Also, I admit, the movie CAN and MIGHT be based on Mk4, like there are also high chances it could be based on Deadly Alliance.
-------------------------------------

Disscusion ended there. See, the movie can simply skip Mk4. I do love Mk4, and it has a decent story, but compared to MKDA is weak, and not deep enough.

So yes, Scorpion might fight Quan Chi in the next movie. The first was based on things from Mk1 (mainly) and Mk2, the second skiped most (if not all!) the Mk2 game story to Mk3Ultimate, so this one, can actually skip Mk4 to MKDA but still have some things that where importnat in Mk4 like the amulet and QUan Chi, and even some extras like characters.

If he did fight quan chi it would not make any sense because the movies are not conected with the games. In the movies scorpion is evil and he works with SUB-ZERO for christ sake.

Wrong. In the movies, he was under powerful control of Shang Tsung. Then, in MKA, he was probably forced by Kahn, though I guess we'll never know.
But that still doesn't matter. Even if Scorpion was evil, that wouldn't stop Quan Chi from killing his clan.
That was very dumb thing to say, Subraka.
