Mortal Kombat 2 cast


The upcoming Mortal Kombat 2 is assembling a fighting crew worthy of facing the forces of Outworld. We've got some familiar faces returning, like Lewis Tan as the MMA fighter Cole Young and Jessica McNamee as the fierce Sonya Blade. But the real game-changers are the new kombatants joining the fray. 

Get ready for the legendary martial artist Johnny Cage, played by Karl Urban, to bring his signature blend of arrogance and flying kicks to the big screen. There's also Shao Kahn, the emperor of Outworld, who'll be portrayed by the imposing Martyn Ford. And for those who favour assassins over movie stars, prepare to see Scorpion's nemesis, Quan Chi, brought to life by Desmond Herriman. This is just a taste of the Warriors suiting up for Mortal Kombat 2 – it's gonna be a legendary tournament.

The hype is heating up faster than a Scorpion fatality. Though an official trailer for Mortal Kombat 2 hasn't dropped yet, there have been some tantalising glimpses. Fan-made trailers are swirling around the web, piecing together rumours and casting news to create epic fight sequences. But trust me, you'll want to wait for the real deal from Warner Bros. Imagine the thunderous roar of Shao Kahn's entrance, the cocky one-liners flying from Johnny Cage, and maybe even a glimpse of Quan Chi's dark magic.

Mortal Kombat 2 story 


With Shang Tsung down for the count, the first Mortal Kombat victory might seem sweet for Earthrealm's warriors. But Shao Kahn, the ruthless emperor of Outworld, isn't known for playing by tournament rules. Whisper of Shao Kahn ripping the very fabric of reality to invade Earthrealm himself, with his sights set on domination.  

This time, the fight goes beyond the tournament grounds. Our heroes, like Liu Kang and Sonya Blade, might have to team up with new faces like the brash Johnny Cage to repel this full-scale invasion. Will they be enough to stop Shao Kahn's conquest and defend Earthrealm from annihilation? One thing's for sure, Mortal Kombat 2 promises a brutal and epic story that throws our warriors into the heart of the war for survival.
