Mortal Kombat from 2021 was decent but not outstanding. The popular fighting game franchise from Nether Realm Studios’ cinematic adaptation maintained its promises about recreating the brutal deaths and bringing to life the game’s colorful cast of ninjas, special forces soldiers, and monsters, but faltered in other respects.
Cole Young, Lewis Tan’s new hero, was one of the most confusing choices. Tan is a skilled martial artist, but Mortal Kombat features so many well-known characters that it begs the question of why they felt the need to create a dull protagonist only for this film. Now the question is, ‘Will the upcoming sequel for Mortal Kombat be any different?”

Mortal Kombat 2’s creative team is listening to fan feedback for the 2021 film, according to Jeremy Slater in an interview with Discussing Film. The team is listening to feedback from viewers for Mortal Kombat to learn what worked and what didn’t, and they intend to utilize it to create a sequel that “tops the original in every way.” Slater also claimed that Mortal Kombat 2 has a lot to excite fans about.
“The Mortal Kombat sequel is awesome. I’m having a ton of fun. I can’t really share any details about it, but we want to make something that the fans really love and I think it’s a really great creative team. They have been listening to the fan reactions and they know what fans loved about the first movie and what they didn’t. Everyone is creatively setting out to really make a sequel that tops the original in every way. We’re still very early in the process, but the fans should be really excited. It’s going to be awesome.”

Additionally, the new film will incorporate MCU characteristics and surpass its predecessor in terms of blood, oddity, and action. Details are few because Slater is only halfway through the writing, but it seems the group is aiming to create a more interesting and rewarding sequel.
