Well, here’s another curve ball for you. Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge is a new animated film coming from Warner Bros. Animation, and it will “debut in the first half of 2020” according to The Hollywood Reporter. The animated film will includes the voices of Community‘s Joel McHale as Johnny Cage and Dexter‘s Jennifer Carpenter as Sonya Blade. It is being directed by Ethan Spaulding, who was responsible for Batman: Assault on Arkham and Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, and the script comes from Jeremy Adams, who worked on Supernatural and Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans.

Rounding out the cast are people you may or may not have heard of. Jordan Rodrigues is Liu Kang, Patrick Seitz is Scorpion and Hanzo Hasashi, Steve Blum is Sub-Zero, Artt Butler is Shang Tsung, Darin De Paul is Quan Chi, Robin Atkin Downes is Kano, David B. Mitchell is Raiden, Ike Amadi is Jax Briggs, Kevin Michael Richardson is Goro (reprising the voice he gave Goro in the 1995 Mortal Kombat film), Grey Griffin is Kitana and Satoshi Hasashi, and Fred Tatasciore is, uh, “Demon Torturer.” Series co-creator Ed Boon is attached as a creative consultant.

Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge is not to be confused with the live-action Mortal Kombat film in development for a release in January 2021. So with these two films and the ongoing success of Mortal Kombat 11, it seems franchise fans have a lot to look forward to.
