Director of the upcoming Mortal Kombat digital series Kevin Tancharoen (@KTANCH on Twitter) has posted the first full photograph of Scorpion, portrayed by Ian Anthony Dale [full cast list].

Scorpion in the new webseries!

As can be seen from the above photograph, the look of his costume is very similar to his look in the early games as well as the movies. This is to say it is strikingly different from what we saw in the Rebirth trailer [full story], in which we only saw him sporting a prison jumpsuit. This shot of Scorpion in a snowy forest could imply a meeting with rival Sub-Zero during the feature episode for the ninja spectre.

Update: The director has shared yet another photo from MK's snowy Vancouver location, this time of the behind-the-scenes variety. It seems the promise of brutal action in the live-action series will be met with the graphic vigor that made Mortal Kombat famous! So in touch with the games, @KTANCH playfully asks (complete with Sub-Zero style snowman), "Friendship or Fatality? Which do you prefer?" Just whose spine is it lying in the snow? We'll have to wait and see!

Thanks go to user for word on this update. As always, keep checking Mortal Kombat Online for coverage on all Mortal Kombat-related news items, as well as @MK_Online on Twitter!
