In an interview with THR, Joe Taslim, who plays Sub-Zero in the ‘Mortal Kombat’ reboot, said he’d like to do a character-focused prequel.
In addition, the actor also raised the possibility of returning in a streak like Noob Saibot.
“In my opinion, the most interesting direction for the franchise would be to do a pre-streak. We could tell the story of Bi-Han and his training to Lin Kuei. When he is kidnapped by Lin Kuei, his parents are murdered. It would be the process for him and his brother to become murderers… We could see two future Sub-Zeros in a movie, and that would be intriguing.
He adds, “If the fans want the continuity of this franchise, there is also a strong possibility that the next step for Bi-Han is to become Noob Saibot. I hope that will happen, because I want to play this character. If they make a sequel, we’ll likely see Noob Saibot. “
Recently, director Simon McQuoid brought up the topic and didn’t rule out the possibility of Sub-Zero returning as Noob Saibot, just like in the game franchise.
“If you watch the game, the characters die and are resurrected, which brings new plot arguments to the table in a really interesting way. I think we can maybe learn from the games and try to do something interesting in the adaptations and Sub-Zero has great possibilities to be a part of that.
However, he said the deaths in the film were not trivial and not all of the dead characters could return to the footage.
Additionally, a resurrected character will not be the same as before, further causing Bi-Han to be reborn as Noob Saibot.
“I don’t want the deaths to be seen as trivial. And I want to leave a big asterisk on my statement: Just because there is a possibility of resurrection, doesn’t mean anyone can be brought back. And those who are brought back are not the same as before.
In Brazil, “Mortal Kombat” has seen its premiere postponed once again and won’t hit the big screen until May 20.
Watch the trailer:
Simon McQuoid (“Premonition 5”) is responsible for the staging.
MMA fighter Cole Young, used to being beaten for money, is unaware of his legacy – or because Outworld Emperor Shang Tsung sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, a Cryomancer from another world, to hunt Cole. Fearing for the safety of his family, Cole sets out to find Sonya Blade and Jax, a special forces major who carries the same strange dragon that Cole was born with. Soon he finds himself in the temple of Lord Raiden, an ancient God and protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with seasoned warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and devious mercenary Kano, as he prepares to take on Earth’s greatest champions against enemies of Outworld in a high-risk battle across the universe. But will Cole be under enough pressure to unlock his arcane – the immense power in his soul – in time to not only save his family, but stop Outworld once and for all?
The cast includes Joe Taslim (Sub Zero), Ludi Lin (Liu Kang), Jessica McNamee (Sonya Blade), Mehcad Brroks (Jax) Josh Lawson (Kano), Chin Han (Shang Tsung), Hiroyuki Sanada (Scorpion), Tadanobu Asano (Raiden), Sisi Stringer (Mileena).
The new feature will be for over 18 years, with the promise of a lot of violence and death.
Released in 1995, the first adaptation of “Mortal Kombat” had a budget of $ 18 million and grossed $ 122.1 million at the global box office.
The sequel, “Mortal Kombat – Annihilation,” cost $ 30 million, but only raised $ 51.3 million worldwide.
Both have been slaughtered by critics.
