Watch: Some Fans Unimpressed With New ‘Mortal Kombat’ Featurette

The upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot movie has fully engaged the wheels of the promotional machine now that it is set to debut in theaters and on HBO Max on April 23rd, and that includes a newly released featurette featuring the cast, writer, and director talking about their characters and the movie more generally. As an added bonus, the new featurette appears to include some new footage, which is always exciting.

 

More specifically, the featurette appears to include the best look yet at Nathan Jones’ character. Jones had once been rumored to be playing Shao Kahn in the film, but it looks as if he will be playing Reiko instead. Reiko is a relatively minor character in the lore of the franchise, but as we’ve seen with Nitara and Kabal, the movie reboot isn’t afraid of digging deeper than usual.

 

But not everyone was impressed with the “woke” sensibilities of the producers.

Not as much of a comics need more "diversity and inclusion" advocate as my girlfriend is, but we both love comic books, bacon, bourbon and hip hop. ANd yet, we still don't vote the same, so we cancel each other out, and that works perfectly in my book...
