A sequel to the film franchise that already had a sequel
We’ve heard rumblings for a number of months, but now things are official. New Line has confirmed that the 2021 Mortal Kombat movie is getting a sequel, and Simon McQuoid is set to return as director. No time frame for the film’s release was given.
It’s no surprise that Mortal Kombat is getting a sequel, as the 2021 film proved to be a sizable hit, especially for the streaming service HBO Max. The 2021 film hit theaters and HBO Max on the same day, and it quickly became one of the service’s most-watched arrivals.
No plot details or casting has been shared on the sequel, and we won’t likely learn that info for quite some time. Following the last film, fans will be eager to see Johnny Cage make his on-screen debut. Last we heard, WWE Superstar The Miz was really pushing for the role!
