The latest webcast episode of IGN Weekly 'Wood features interview bytes from two members of the upcoming Mortal Kombat digital series cast and crew. Series star, Michael Jai White, and producer, Tim Carter, elaborate on the serialized format of the show and attempt to articulate what to expect from its content.
Michael Jai White, who stars opposite Jeri Ryan (Sonya Blade) as Jax, describes their portion of the series as within "the domain of reality" adding, "... with maybe 15% supernatural." The quote addresses concerns about how original plotlines from the Mortal Kombat canon would be adapted into the live-action series. Carter elaborates further with consideration for the material.
"... Each package of episodes will address different characters and different pieces of the game. For instance, Sonya/Jax/Kano is very close to what was in the short - it's a gritty police story. When we pick up the other game characters, they exist in a fantasy world, so we're going to that fantasy world together."
