A recent report regarding the Mortal Kombat movie reboot gave interested fans a taste of who could potentially be playing Kano with Joel Edgerton as a key person of interest, now a much larger character list has been leaked that bodes well for the future film.
For those wondering what the new reboot will be about, we still don't have a clear synopsis but the below character list does offer some insight as to what we can expect. Thanks to the folks over at The Hashtag Show, we've got a sneak peek at who the team will be casting for next:
- COLE TURNER – A washed up boxer that still puts up a good fight. He loves his daughter Emily and will do anything to protect her. He is recruited to fight in Mortal Kombat and turns out to have a mysterious upbringing.
- EMILY – Cole’s 12-year-old daughter who is already a skilled boxing trainer. She proves to be tougher than she looks.
- KANO – The large, rugged Australian ex-special forces turned merc-for-hire wanted by Interpol for arms dealing and drug running. He’s killed a lot of people yet still has a goofy attitude.
- LORD RAIDEN – The Thunder God leader of the humankind’s contestants in Mortal Kombat. He oversees their training for the tournament.
- SONYA BLADE – The tough blonde dressed in military gear and ready to become a stronger champion.
- JACKSON “JAX” BRIDGES – With “Arms like cannons” he recruits Cole to the Mortal Kombat tournament.
- LIU KANG – A Shaolin warrior from the White Lotus society that has the ability to throw fireballs.
- KUNG LAO – A stoic warrior monk who throws his hat like a deadly frisbee.
- SUB-ZER0 – The ice ninja with deadly eyes hidden behind a gruesome mask.
- MILEENA – The female Outworld assassin dressed in leather armor and wielding deadly sais.
- SHANG TSUNG – The ageless Outworld general that oversees the tournament and it’s fighters.
Though it may seem weird that a few classic fighters are missing from the list, the site did mention that this roster could very well grow as the production team works towards a green light from Warner Bros.
