The Mortal Kombat movie trailer is finally here! And with it, we’re getting a solid look at some of the classic character’s new looks. We thought we’d put together a little side by side comparison and figure out just where the MK movie is pulling it’s inspiration from!
From Scorpion to Sub-Zero, the MK movie (2021) is definitely pulling looks straight out of Mortal Kombat 9, Mortal Kombat X, and Mortal Kombat 11, but also offers some interesting takes on classic Mortal Kombat costumes.
What Mortal Kombat characters do you hope to see in the new MK movie? Let us know in the comments and remember, IGN is the best place for all your Mortal Kombat movie news!

    • @Gabriel P & @alex cox .. You know I agree with you on the Raiden part. I like the change of outfit in that situation when he is recruiting. Maybe, he will change armor when he is time to fight. The artist they got to portray Raiden is alright. On Mileena, the problem is the lack of the focal features she has in the game. The actor is fine, she definitely suits the role. But they should have got the Makeup Artist who did Penny Wise on IT. I strongly think Kano & Shang Tsung characters are the farthest I believe in the game. The OG version of this characters in 1995 were the perfect ones. Shame, those two are a bit old to reclaim their roles. The looks of the rest are fine. If in some point Hanzo H. Scorpion would remove that Samurai body armor & expose his yellow Shirai Ryu uniform.

    • @Ionic-Android why would they have him in the movie he's a cheesy movie character in the Mortal Kombat franchise that takes the piss out of Arnie. There is no where you'd be able to use them as a character. I don't think he would translate very well.

  • They could have made the ninjas like subzero and Scorpion look way better and buff. Subzero should have looked very blue as usual and very muscular like the last video game . Not too sure why Scorpion is in Samurai gear ...smh . They are the most popular and iconic characters . Heck they got about a dozen of those ninjas. Yeah. Could have done better.

  • IGN is so afraid to point Mileena´s blackwashing, with alot of black characters and even the new could be black, but they decided to black wash Mileena.

  • First of all, the actress playing Mileena is not African American, she's mixed race. Second, Mileena is a fictional hybrid species/race that has never had official traits. Third, Mileena looks and sounds drastically different in almost every game and movie. Therefore, the casting choice visually and audibly has no real issues. Quit bitching and let the woman's acting speak for itself.

  • kano has the metal face ! Under the skin!! I dont see how noone gets that. He starts out looking normal but by the end will look like the original mk1 kano. the eye beam portion of the trailer is reversed as kano has the lazer eye on the right side not the left. then theres the scene where you can see the burnt outline of where the metal will show,. I bet that scene is right before the eye lazer and is what burns off his face to expose the metal.

  • As a Mileena fan I'm not going to lie I do not like how they design her at all. I don't like her hair, her outfit, and her mouth... I like that messy haircut in MKX. We deliberately asked for her to come back on MK11 and now in the movie y'all going to design her looking like she got her outfit from party City and dress her up as game of thrones??? At least put her in pink for Christ sakes! Lol smh 🤦🏻‍♀️😩

  • Thank you for not putting Johnny Cage in the movie, he is too white and chauvinist for 2021. Next we need to get rid of Shao Khan, he's too misogynist and elitest, next we must remove Raiden, we don't need a male leader. Actually, can we get a sequal with only women and poc?

  • Who thinks Cole will be a new character and possibly Scorpions son? Or do you think he’ll be a known character and the last remaining member of the Shirai Ryu and be Takeda but doesn’t know he is?

    Shaun BangShaun Bang5 dagar sedan
  • I’m sure it would make the continuity be pretty confusing if they recast the original Shang tsung but given that they even used the original actors look for the recent games it feels odd that another actor is playing Shang Tsung lol. This new Cole character could be a huge hit or miss but since they’re hinting at that he is related in some way to scorpion, the best thing for that character would be if he is like a scorpion type character with similar outfits and fighting styles.

    Shaun BangShaun Bang5 dagar sedan
  • I hope Mileena isn’t just the way the trailer shows and has some way of opening her mouth even bigger and make her teeth pop out more. It’s odd that they’re doing Mileena in the first film without katana given their history together with Mileena being a clone of katana and that they cast an African American to be Mileena when katana is supposed to be an Asian and this film is pretty committed to portraying their characters with the proper racial casting even making Raider Asian when in the games he looks pretty Caucasian.

Kitana and Mileena are Asian , Jade is black yeah even her mk 11 face model was a black girl , Skarlet is Caucasian and Tanya is inspired by Middle Eastern Looks her mk X look was so Cleopatra. That's it .

    • Kitana and Mileena are Asian? Really? They were portrayed by Katalin Zamiar and Becky Gable in the 90's MK video games. Talisa Soto, played Kitana, is Latina in the 1995 MK movie. Tanya is inspired by Middle Eastern looks? She has been black since MK4. You say Kitana is Asian? Sindel is Caucasian.

  • Smh to the kids having problems with mileena being black. Kitana and mileena skin colors always change from the first game. Early MK they have white skin color like Caucasian. PS2 generations and MK9 and MKX they have brown colors. MK11 they look Asian. It’s different case than making Jax Asian because he’s set to be a black person. While kitana and mileena ethnics and skin colors are always ambiguous.
