The Mortal Kombat franchise seems like its bigger than ever lately, with tons of sales milestones being hit, the latest Mortal Kombat movie doing well enough to warrant a sequel, and the game franchise getting a complete reboot. It makes you wonder what could be next for Mortal Kombat, but sadly, we know one thing that isn’t in the works.

If you’ve been paying attention to the straight-to-home-release movies in the Mortal Kombat universe, you know that there have been quite a few animated releases in the last number of years. The recent lineup includes Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind, and Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms. Much like fans have been requesting for the games, there’s been a desire to see Mortal Kombat and DC team up for an animated feature, but apparently there’s little to no chance of that happening.

The above animated releases were all written by Jeremy Adams, a man who also wrote films like Batman: Soul of the Dragon and Justice League: Warworld. Adams would love to see the worlds of DC and Mortal Kombat cross in an animated adventure, but the higher-ups at Warner Bros. rejected a pitch for that very idea.

While specifics aren’t shared, in an interview with Comicbook.com, Adams mentioned that he and his team pitched a Mortal Kombat/DC tie-in project awhile ago, but it was “kind of rebuffed.” That said, Adams would still love to see the project come to fruition, as he believes the idea to be “super, super cool.”
