I think it will be better than both movies, and that at least one good character will die, especially Liu Kang...

I think one "MAIN GOOD GUY" character will die (Liu Kang) and 1, 2 or 3 "GOOD GUYS" will die (Li Mei for example).

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 od story and all.

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.

Seriously, I think the movie will be 100% better than the second video.
And as usual the bad guys will die, and the good guys will win.

Other then that, I heard Lui Kang should totally die, and so will Sonya and mabye even Jax.

Yes, it gave you a recap, much like MKA did for MK. But if you put it all in chronological order, a lot of ground would be skipped. Too much, really. Very little background would be given, making to original plot somewhat shallow.

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.

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 but was trapped in hell, 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.

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.

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.

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 on 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 aslo high chances it could be based on Deadly Alliance.

Question.

If Lui Kang is going to be the good guy that dies in MK3 and hoping of a MK4, who will be the next hero?. As, from the first movie Cage was the only one to defeat an important fighter (Goro).

btw nice story queve

IF there's going to be a mk4 there shouldn't be just one specific hero. I believe that kung lao would have the best chance because cage sucks

Think about this, if MKR info actually turns out to be real, the Tsung information might be a hint to something BIG!

Queve thats was a good story you gave. I think you have a good point about not needing a in depth story of Scorpion and Quan Chi. Good job. I hope MK3 movie does involve the MKDA story.

scorpion would need way more than a simple recap. It would make even less sense to just outright have quan chi simply tell scorpion he's the killer. The movie goer audience would thank "so what?" Now us gamers know the story others don't. What I think is gonna happen:

They're gonna try and make an original story that doesn't really follow either MK4 or MKDA but still has the DA theme to it. Such as no dragon king, but we're gonna see dramatic changes. After all, we can't expect an exact following of the game. MKA was a combination of 2 and 3 with little bits of 4 tossed in. Since this is most likely gonna be the last they're probably gonna throw in a more "it's over" kinda movie, the end of the three movies type of deal.

characters I would like to see die:
sonya(if sandra hess), jax, and maybe liu if kung lao can become a star.

all in all I hope for better costumes than power ranger left overs. The costumes alone caused most of my hate towards MKA.

How could Kung Lao become the main character he hasn't been in any of the movies and he probably won't be in the third, I sure as hell hope he won't be. Do you really think that after having one appearance they'd make him the main character? That doesn't make sense as much as I'd hate to say it Liu Kang if you think about it can be the only main character. Think about it I already said why it couldn't be Kung Lao, though Sonya is an awesome fighter and one ofmy favorite characters she still wouldn't really be any match for anyone below a sub-boss, Jax you've got to be kidding me most people don't really like him and he's too dumb of a fighter to be the hero. The only person I could think of that would somewhat make sense is Johnny Cage since he was strong enough to kill Goro, but still Johnny Cage is my favorite character but relisticly he makes a better guy who kills the sub-bosses like Goro and if he lived in MK:A you know he'd have fought Motaro. So if Liu dies I'd have to guess Cage would step up even though I his biggest fan couldn't really picture it.
