Mortal Kombat 2 (2023) – Everything We Know So Far About – News And Updates

As first reported by Deadline, Mortal Kombat 2 is officially happening as of January 2022. New Line and Warner Bros. are now confirmed to be taking the necessary steps to continue the franchise, with their first action being the hiring of The Umbrella Academy’s Jeremy Slater to pen the Mortal Kombat 2 script. The media outlet notes that no other deals are currently in place for the sequel, meaning Mortal Kombat 2021 director Simon McQuoid and the reboot’s core cast still need to agree to terms of their own to return for Mortal Kombat 2.

The end of Mortal Kombat sets up further invasions by Shang Tsung as he seeks to use his Outworld allies to prevent a fair Mortal Kombat tournament from happening and his own inevitable defeat. With that in mind, Cole Young and his fellow surviving Earthrealm champions are sent to round up more champions, beginning with series favorite Johnny Cage, who Young tracks to Hollywood. Shang Tsung, meanwhile, will no doubt retire to his own realm to lick his wounds and bolster his own team, possibly looking to revive his most feared warrior, Sub-Zero, somehow. It is, however, confirmed that an actual Mortal Kombat tournament will be shown in a Mortal Kombat 2 movie, surely pleasing lots of fans who were left bemused by its absence.

So perhaps 2023 wouldn’t be out of the question. Reports now suggest that multiple Mortal Kombat follow-up movies are in development, including sequels and spinoffs to sit alongside the confirmed Mortal Kombat 2. That’s primarily due to the movie’s HBO Max launch being one of the biggest in the service’s history, meaning it’s likely Warner Bros. will make Mortal Kombat 2’s production a top priority.
