The list of Mortal Kombat restarts is growing as characters from Mortal Kombat 3 have been confirmed for the film. Mortal Kombat dates back to the early 1990s, when the first video game in arcades came out. Now, almost 30 years later, the Mortal Kombat franchise has expanded to include several video games, comics and two films. The first two films released in the '90s were shot by critics and fans, but Warner Bros. is trying to re-launch the franchise.
It's been 22 years since Mortal Kombat: Annihilation hit theaters After James Wan was added as a producer, things got more and more punchy at the restart. About a year later, Simon McQuoid was announced as Mortal Kombat's director, but more recently, the film's cast has begun to take shape. Famous characters such as Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim) and Scorpian (Hiroyuki Sanada) as well as Shang Tsung, Sonya Blade, Kano, Jax, Liu Kang and Mileena are included in the film. Now the movie has added even more characters.

Mortal Kombat started filming for two months ago, but fans still have to wait until 2021 to see the fighters on the big screen catch up. In the meantime, the fans still have a lot to do in Mortal Kombat 11 for which the Netherrealm Studios still publish content. While New Line Cinema attempted to curb the popularity of video games in the 1990s, Warner Bros is likely to be luckier, as the rebirth of Mortal Kombat will be more reliable for the games, including the brutal casualties Series is known.
While Sector, Cyrax, Kabal and Nightwolf are pictured above, Russo did not explicitly state that these characters would appear from Mortal Kombat 3 in the film. Some other characters such as Ermac, Motaro, Sheeva, Rain and Sindel have made their debut in Mortal Kombat 3, so the characters pictured above may not appear in the movie. Mortal Kombat may not be able to include every character in the series in a movie, but it's quite possible that more characters will be announced for the movie before the release of the film.
