Mortal Kombat: Legacy may be well on its way to attracting a following of millions, but the digital success of the first three episodes hasn't stopped Kevin Tancharoen playing directly to the online diehard fans!
In his latest Twitter teaser, the director shows off a toothy preview of Jolene Tran's yet to debut Mileena. Trailer footage has already shown off the famous fighting feud between Shao Kahn's adopted pseudo-siblings, Mileena and Kitana.
@KTANCH's accompanying message, "What's wrong young Mileena?," suggests the image has flashback significance, but for a character who was partially cloned in the canon of the games [see; character vignette], that suggests little in the way of a certain timeline. It is also uncertain if this indicates an animated flashback sequence, episode, or storyboards.
What is certain is the presence of some nasty teeth, a trademark of the character that will delight fans. Eagle-eyed viewers will have already noticed glimpses of an extended mouth in the trailer, appearing opposite Sam Tjhia as Kitana. A previous teaser showed off their martial arts prowess.
