This year we finally saw the reboot of one of the most anticipated video game movie adaptations of recent times, Mortal Kombat, and Warner Bros. Pictures would already be shuffling the possibility of turning this saga into its own cinematic universe as indicated from the portal Variety.
Although the film released last April did not receive a good reception from critics, it did manage to break records at the post-pandemic box office, in addition to the most fans enjoyed one of the most entertaining films of the year. But Mortal Kombat ended with an open story, which would leave room for a sequel or many spin-offs.
What could come:
Several important characters of Mortal Kombat they were missing in the first installment, so in future projects they could take a leading role. Mythical characters such as Reptile, Kitana, Smoke, Baraka, Noob Saitob or the protagonist Johnny Cage, to whom the director dedicated a good explanation of why he was not in the film, they could see his appearance in future productions.
Rumors of Ryan Reynolds becoming Johnny Cage in that sequel resonated for a while on the internet, to which the actor himself he answered laughing at them. In this way, Gal Gadot was also thought to play Kitana. But the truth is that very little is still known about these projects.
Either way, the ending of Mortal Kombat made it clear that more deadly tournaments would be held between the Earth Kingdom and the Outer World Kingdom, so surely We will end up seeing multiple sequels of this new cinematic reboot of the saga.
