Mortal Kombat, with its new release, has piqued players’ interests globally and now they are demanding their favorite movie characters to be in the game as playable characters. So, today, we have brought you some of the iconic characters players want in the new Mortal Kombat game!
Beatrix Kiddo: Kill Bill Franchise
Watching Kill Bill, one can’t help but wonder whether the director of the franchise, Quentin Tarantino, was motivated by the gameplay of Mortal Kombat. Beatrix “The Bride” Kiddo is a ruthless character and it’d be great to see her using her five-point palm exploding heart technique” as the ultimate finishing move.
John Wick: John Wick Franchise
John Wick is not someone who can be easily killed. He would be a great playable character as he doesn’t have one set piece of weapon to use, remember he can kill someone with even a book! Moreover, it’d be great if his fatality move is killing the opponent off with a pencil as the screen says “Baba Yaga; John Wick wins” instead of “Fatality”.
King Leonidas: 300
Leonidas is the strong-willed protagonist of a gore-filled ultra-violent flick about Spartans; how can he not be on this list? The leader of the Spartans never shied away from a fight, and though outnumbered, his army was able to beat all of Xerxe’s forces. It’d be great if his “fatality” move in Mortal Kombat involves him screaming, “This Is Sparta!”.
James Bond: 007 franchise
James Bond, especially Craig’s Bond, might not be the strongest one on the list but is undoubtedly the most charming one. His looks could literally kill, if not his guns or knives. Moreover, the addition of his gadgets would be interesting to see in the Mortal Kombat world and could very well be a part of his “fatality” move!
Tyler Durden: Fight Club
Fight Club doesn’t have exuberant characters in line with Mortal Kombat warriors. However, that doesn’t mean that Tyler Durden wouldn’t make a great playable character. What would make him such an interesting character to play is his duality in the movie because, well, spoiler alert, The Narrator and Tyler were the same people! Not to forget, Tyler is a great fighter.
Pennywise: IT franchise
Pennywise could be huge for the franchise. As soon as the opponent sees Pennywise, it’s game over. The character can shapeshift, manipulate time and space, and literally eat children by opening his giant mouth. The red balloon can be his signature style, and the game can maybe make him speak “You’ll float too” as he devours his opponents as his “fatality” move?
Neo: Matrix Franchise
The “chosen one” could be a perfect addition to Mortal Kombat. He is a literal god of his world and can kick through skyscrapers, stop bullets, and can kick asses as nobody’s business! Moreover, the character can seemingly learn anything with a training program from his universe which could help unlock new abilities.
Maximus Decimus Meridius: Gladiator
“Are you not entertained?” Maximus is a crowd-pleaser and can hold the attention of a huge crowd as he slays his opponents. Maximus is a relatable character because his path to glory has not been easy, and his brute strength comes from his strong resolve. His fatality in Mortal Kombat could involve him slowly removing his mask to reveal CGI Russel Crowe himself!
