Thanks to the production of the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot film being well into things down in Australia, a number of odds and ends about the movie have made their way online. Writer Greg Russo is probably the biggest font of information, but even the actors themselves are getting in on the fun and interacting with fans. Joe Taslim, who plays Sub-Zero in the upcoming movie, even went so far as to imply that there's a lot more to his character than in previous films.
More specifically, Taslim responded to a fan stating that they "hope Bi-Han gets justice done," pointing to the fact that Sub-Zero's mythology is a lot more complex and interesting that previous movies explored. While Taslim didn't outright confirm anything, he did note that he's "giving everything" and that the character is written "beautifully."
It's unclear exactly what would make Taslim's Sub-Zero "beautifully" written at this point. We know basically nothing about the plot of the upcoming reboot, and while we know a number of the major players involved, and the general premise of the gaming franchise, there's no telling how all of those pieces fit together.
