Mortal Kombat 2 Movie Shooting June Villains

Mortal Kombat 2 Begins Filming in June – Potential Villains Revealed

Mortal Kombat 2, the sequel to the 2021 Mortal Kombat movie, will begin filming in June and wrap up in September. A sequel was already announced by Warner Bros Discovery last year following the box office success of the first movie despite a divisive reception from fans and critics. Producer Todd Garner has now confirmed that shooting will start this summer. Additionally, a new report has revealed the potential villains we might see in the sequel.

Responding to news on Twitter, Garner revealed that Mortal Kombat 2 will commence shooting this June. It will once again be directed by Simon McQuoid with Moon Knight writer Jeremy Slater penning the script. The (surviving) cast from the first movie is expected to return though not much details are known about where the story will go. Some major spoilers will be discussed below so proceed with caution.

The first Mortal Kombat movie concluded with Scorpion defeating Sub-Zero and Outworld officially announcing the deadly tournament. The sequel will likely focus on the tournament itself. Slater stated in a previous interview that the team is doubling down on the positives of the first movie, seeing the sequel as “the chance to take everything that worked in the first one and do it even better and give the audience even more, and make something that is just incredibly satisfying, and really exciting, and unpredictable.”

We may also see some familiar villains from the games make their debut in the sequel. According to a new report from The Hashtag Show, Mortal Kombat 2 will feature four new villains: Baraka, Quan Chi, Sindel and Shao Khan. We aren’t really sure about the rest but Shao Khan’s inclusion seems like a natural fit given his prominence in the games. Take this with a pinch of salt for now until we have confirmation. It will be interesting to see who they cast as Shao Khan – we really hope it isn’t Dwayne Johnson.
