Four of the Mortal Kombat movie actors want to be MK11 DLC. It's not an outlandish wish since the 2019 fighting game recently added actors from the 1995 film into the game.
Might as well. What's another 10 gallons of piss to a franchise that's literally an ocean of piss?
Isn't it like the best rated fighting game ever?
You sound pissed off
Now I'm no a dietitian, but I think that's a bit too much salt, might wanna cut back.
Why you so mad bro??
It has to be the DLC.
Not the worst attempt I've ever seen. But you new trolls lack subtlety or nuance. Too on the nose. 2/10
Are you OK?
Successful games are the new piss? Damn thats edgy.
I see no harm adding skins from the latest movie. Kinda surprised it wasn't announced and made official ahead of theatrical and HBO Max release.
I personally hate the MK movie cast they just don't fit the characters well imo. Especially raiden
Agreed, new MK movie cast doesn't appear to fit the characters. Except Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion. That is the one casting choice I was ok with.
I'm hoping they hired based on talent and not matching specific looks to a tee.
Yeah we dont want another live-action dragonball 🙃
Another Avatar: The Last Airbender
Instinctually I want to say I'd love to have this DLC but wait until I've seen the movie. It's not that I expect a great movie or anything, but I hope it's fun. The opening 7 minutes doesn't really reveal much but I did like some of the attention to detail and I did like the little action that was in it. Kano is to me, personally, the one character I've seen in the trailer that I dislike the most just visually but the movie might win me over if your hope is true, Christopher, that the actors were chosen carefully.
Umm looks play into acting. Mk characters throughout the franchise have had various looks. Having someone young looking play Raiden for example is not a fit. Having any random fit black dude play Jax isn't a fit. You wouldn't have a just anyone play say...Mario? It's a certain look that has to gel well. I wish the people they face capped and voiced in the MK11 game played them as most nailed it. From the trailer just about every character was not pleasing. Sonya Bkade is fine just about any blonde can play her tbh and Liu Kange wasn't bad. Subzero and Scorpio is passable it's really all about the voice acting and costumes with them since they're masked. Which btw their costumes was not made well. Way too loose fitting. Like damn the lin kuei don't have a tailor? Lol. Milleena is also passable. They butchered the Raiden Kasting (they always have in the movies tbh) Kano he's just not it, really not feel the dude playing Jax.
I don't think it's as bad as you chief. That's cool. I'm not sitting here and calling the movie a success, but it also does feel like they are trying to "reboot" some elements of the universe and probably some new looks for the future. I get you won't like that, but I don't see an issue with it if the movie is well written, has good action, and the actors pull it off without having to look just like the characters we've known for over 20 years. Because, if they just made a movie like the first two movies, focusing more on looks? I'd rather they just not or stick to animated (Joel McHale was a perfect voice for Johnny Cage in the one animation I've seen, btw).
Christopher lambert was a better raiden 😉
That man could hardly act. Nostalgia classes are on tight I see. lol.
Hell no he was a horrible raiden. However he was a better casting than the current dude. Complete mismatch. Idk why the movies fail raiden so badly
Likewise, Raiden for me is the biggest miscast. But waiting to reserve final judgement till I've seen the movie. Jeff Meek alongside Lambert portrayed Raiden the best.
Scorpion is the most badass casting ever.
in app purchase isn't hard. Look at league of legends with 200 fighters and each is like 11 skins
For free? Lol
anything that replaces Ronda Rousey is + on my book as a wrestling fan
No thanks! I’m still trying to get over that, “Get over here!!!” line.
I wouldn’t be mad about it. I think they nailed the scorpion and sub zero actors. I think they did a good job with the casting imo. It’s kinda weird raiden isn’t a 7 foot tall white dude but he is based on the Japanese thunder god lol.
Raiden is based off of the character, Lightning; One of the three storms from the movie 'Big Trouble in Little China'. https://fastly.syfy.com/sit...
That guy was also Asian though wasn’t he lol? Raiden and Fujin are Japanese gods
Yeah dude, cause Japanese people are totally not asian /s. That Raiden and Shang Tsung are based off of Lightning and Lo Pan from Big Trouble in Little China are some of the most well known facts about the game's origin. Fujin didn't appear in Mortal Kombat until MK Mythologies: Sub-Zero. I don't know what he has to do with this.
What the hell are you going on about? I said it’s weird he’s not a 7 foot tall white dude like he is in the games. But he is based on a Japanese god so the movie isn’t wrong. Then you mention another Asian character influence like that refutes the point somehow lol. He is based off a Japanese god as well. Raiden is a thunder god in the game and in Japanese mythology. Fujin is a god of wind in the game and the mythology. That’s what he has to do with my point you idiot. I know what you are saying, you are saying “this character is based on big trouble character and ONLY the the big trouble character” But no, you’re an idiot. Not that the character isnt an influence, you’re right about that and it’s officially stated. He’s not the only one. But it’s also stated in their names, godhood, story and powers that they based on Japanese mythology as well. Tobias was super deep into mythology and mysticism and that’s also well established in the basic core lore of the franchise. Look up Tobias on Twitter and look at his lore bit threads. It’s actually pretty deep.
"I know what you are saying, you are saying this character is based on big trouble character and ONLY the the big trouble character” Lol where did I say that. You're talking about what the inspiration for Raiden was and you don't even mention Lightning when he was clearly the primary inspiration. Your comment was begging for a correction.
It’s irrelevant to my point and didn’t need to be corrected as my point was not wrong. Yes that character was an influence, he wasn’t the first or last. Thanks for chiming in with the useless ally oop. Also “primary influence”? Do you have any idea how influence works? Lol
The guy that plays Kano is HOT
Nah mixing movie game into a game does not flow right just ask Street Fighter
Woah, woah. woah, let's see how the movie does first....
Yeah I'd like 90s movie liu kang and kano first. The Johnny cage, raider, Sonya skin DLC is way too expensive
