Mortal Kombat 2 producer Todd Garner has shared another new behind-the-scenes photo from the sequel's set (via SFFGazette.com), this time teasing what appears to be one of the latest tournament's many new stages we'll see the fights play out on.
Speculation is running rampant that this is likely Outworld, particularly as a number of characters from that ream are set to take centre stage in the Mortal Kombat follow-up. The lighting adds some weight to those theories, anyway, though we can't currently identify who that lone figure is.
Upon closer inspection, we'd put money on this being either Shao Khan's reconstructed Temple/Cathedral from Mortal Kombat 3 and 9 or one of Quan Chi's fortresses located in Outworld and the Netherrealm (that may even be the resurrected Bi-Han/Sub-Zero standing there).
All signs point to Mortal Kombat 2 being quite a bit grander in scope than its divisive predecessor and those involved with the movie have promised a sequel which improves on the first instalment's failings.
The movie stars Lewis Tan as Cole Young, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Mehcad Brooks as Jackson "Jax" Briggs, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Joe Taslim as Noob Saibot, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Martyn Ford as Shao Kahn, Desmond Chiam as King Jerrod, Ana Thu Nguyen as Queen Sindel, and Damon Herriman as Quan Chi.
New cast additions include Karl Urban as Johnny Cage, Tati Gabrielle as Jade, and Adeline Rudolph as Kitana.
Moon Knight Head Writer Jeremy Slater has penned the screenplay, while Simon McQuoid is back in the director's chair. According to a brief logline, "The sequel continues the story of a group of ragtag fighters, versed in the ways of martial arts, who defend our reality which is known in Earthrealm against the Outworld."
Mortal Kombat 2 doesn't currently have a confirmed release date.
