The producer of the Mortal Kombat adaptation, Todd Garner, told Den of Geek that the series has enormous potential, which could lead to the creation of an entire cinematic universe.
MK is like the Marvel Universe. They are endless. First we asked ourselves, “What would Marvel do?” You start with Iron Man – the guy who became the entry point.
In our case, we selected Cole, and then we created a painting, on which we placed the most famous characters.
This means that many of the familiar fighters in the fighting game series will likely only debut in potential sequels. One of the characters that was originally supposed to appear in the first film, but was eventually cut, was Rain.
