Mortal Kombat 2 producer Todd Garner recently shared a set photo which (all-but) confirmed that Hiroyuki Sanada will reprise the role of Scorpion (the actor had previously indicated that he would not return), and he's now taken to social media to tease some of the sequel's new characters.

The shots feature a new look at the official title logo (which takes influence from the second game's title design), along with Kitana's signature spiked fan and Shao Kahn's hammer.

We also get a first behind-the-scenes glimpse of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina actress Tati Gabrielle as Jade.

In the games, Jade is a lifelong friend and bodyguard of Princess Kitana, who also serves as one of Shao Kahn's most lethal assassins and spies.

Check out the photos at the links below.

The first movie didn't exactly achieve a flawless victory at the box office, but it performed well enough - especially as one of the first major Covid-era releases with a day-and-date streaming debut - to warrant a sequel, and cameras have been rolling in Australia since last June.

Like pretty much every other major production, Mortal Kombat 2 was forced to pause filming due to the recent SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, but star Karl Urban (Johnny Cage) recently confirmed that shooting is back on.

The sequel will also see the debut of some other new heroes and villains from the long-running video game series. Martyn Ford (Red Sonja) will play villainous Outworld emperor Shao Kahn, Desmond Chiam (Joy Ride) will take on the role of Edenian King Jerrod, Ana Thu Nguyen (Suka) is on board as Queen Sindel, and Damon Herriman (Once Upon a Time In Hollywood) will portray Netherrealm demon Quan Chi.

Pretty much all of the main characters - even the ones that were (seemingly) killed off - from the first movie will return, with Lewis Tan back as Cole Young, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Tadanobu Asano as Lord Raiden, Mehcad Brooks as Jax, Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Joe Taslim as Bi-Han and Sub-Zero, and Max Huang as Kung Lao.

"Hunted by the fearsome warrior Sub-Zero, MMA fighter Cole Young finds sanctuary at the temple of Lord Raiden. Training with experienced fighters Liu Kang, Kung Lao and the rogue mercenary Kano, Cole prepares to stand with Earth's greatest champions to take on the enemies from Outworld in a high-stakes battle for the universe."

Simon McQuoid is back in the director's chair, this time working from a from Jeremy Slater. James Wan is producing alongside McQuoid, Todd Garner, Michael Clear, and E. Bennett Walsh.

The Mortal Kombat sequel hasn't been given an official release date.

She's a hottie 🥰😍

Glad they got Jeremy Slater for the sequel. The first film's script was rough.
The1st - 1/12/2024, 3:55 PM
@McMurdo - I wish they'd modernize the 90's theme, or did they do that? Just remember a succession of leg sweeps.
DrReedRichards - 1/12/2024, 7:45 PM
@The1st -

They did it for the end credits.

The1st - 1/15/2024, 8:19 AM
@DrReedRichards - I remember that now, but I don't think techno was the way to go. I remember getting hyped when the original blared as the movie started. This just didn't do the same for me.

At first glance I thought that was Miss B. Nasty(that’s an actual person).

@Superspecialawesomeguy - so you understand… 🤝🏾
mountainman - 1/12/2024, 2:11 PM
Wasn’t a big fan of the first one, but I’m willing to give this a go.
HashTagSwagg - 1/12/2024, 2:25 PM
Hopefully she isn't as annoying as she was portrayed in MK11
AnthonyVonGeek - 1/12/2024, 2:27 PM
Hopefully we actually get to see the Mortal Kombat tournament this time. 🤷‍♂️
ObserverIO - 1/13/2024, 5:04 AM
@AnthonyVonGeek - I like that they're taking their time with it. The tournament is the centrepiece of Mortal Kombat lore and there's only supposed to be one every century or so. The sequels all extend that by bringing it to Earth and having Shao Kahn take over, but then it kinda loses steam and eventually reboots.

But yes, I would def like the tournament to at least begin this time, but lets not have the whole thing.
Forthas - 1/12/2024, 2:42 PM
Good casting for this role. Johnny Cage is a huge miscast.
WruceBayne - 1/12/2024, 3:06 PM
@Forthas - I think they tried to get a “BIG name” for the sequel(which tells me that they are going to kill the dude from the first one) and Karl Urban is the biggest they could do.
Kurne - 1/12/2024, 5:24 PM
@WruceBayne - I have a strong feeling they thought people would love it/suck it up just because its Karl Urban, and because they're playing into the whole "Karl Urban plays this and that pop culture character".
WruceBayne - 1/12/2024, 7:08 PM
@Kurne - I can believe that
grif - 1/12/2024, 2:46 PM
real hard pass. wont even watch the first one

Omario - 1/12/2024, 3:13 PM
First one was a B movie. The main actor and his story was terrible plus he can't act. Scorpion only knows 3 English words and its "Get over here!" Laughable. Also didn't like how they used Kung Lao. It was enjoyable with low expectations.
Arthorious - 1/12/2024, 3:15 PM
In Uncharted I always had a hard time imagining her as a high stake mercenary who could take down Marky Marky, but hey they did it.
mountainman - 1/12/2024, 4:08 PM
@Arthorious - I didn’t like her in Uncharted, but I didn’t like anything about the movie so I wouldn’t hold it against the actor.
Spoken - 1/12/2024, 3:22 PM
I have a good feeling about the sequel.
MarkCassidy - 1/12/2024, 3:47 PM
Am I the only one that thought MK 1 was decent? I mean it should have been a lot better, but I liked the scorpion/sun zero stuff and there were some entertaining moments. The lead actor was atrocious though.
HashTagSwagg - 1/12/2024, 3:59 PM
@MarkCassidy - I liked it, it has it's flaws like what they did with Mileena and that guy they got for raiden having absolutely zero presence. The main lead was entirely a studio exec decision to try and enforce on the film what he thought was cool but for me the good outway's the bad and it's it a hell of an improvemeant over those awful web series episodes.
harryba11zack - 1/12/2024, 4:05 PM
@MarkCassidy - I enjoyed it, it's not as a good as the first movie from the 90s but it was very enjoyable. It was Nice to see that sub-zero was treated as a real threat and Kano stole the show.
slickrickdesigns - 1/12/2024, 4:06 PM
@MarkCassidy - I was a fan of the scorpion and sub zero stuff. It was awesome to see sun zero just wreck Jax too.
MotherGooseUPus - 1/12/2024, 4:06 PM
@MarkCassidy - would of been 1000x better if they didnt have that dogshit lead actor... hoping this one is better and he has alot less to say and do
JobinJ - 1/12/2024, 4:08 PM
@MarkCassidy - There was certainly some bad acting......and actors (Liu Kang). But it was entertaining.

I didn't like the new character they made for the story, but it worked.

Would have liked to actually see Raider fight.

I hope they do an actual Tournament this time.
mountainman - 1/12/2024, 4:08 PM
@MarkCassidy - The scorpion/sub zero stuff was all I liked. Was very boring for 85% of the runtime. Fell asleep twice trying to get through it before I completed it.
BlackStar25 - 1/12/2024, 4:44 PM
@MarkCassidy - You nailed it. I think for me personally Scorpion and Sub-Zero carried that film. If you remove those two....i think this film is honestly unwatchable.
ThouBear8 - 1/12/2024, 4:54 PM
@MarkCassidy - you're not the only one, I definitely enjoyed it, even if it could've been better.

Honestly, the people on this website are incredibly dramatic. Everything is either the best ever or the worst ever (usually the worst).
Ryguy88 - 1/12/2024, 9:19 PM
@MarkCassidy - it was decent. Good and bad for basically what you said.
JobinJ - 1/12/2024, 4:09 PM
Karl Urban for Johnny Cage is such a bad move. I love Urban, but he's no Johnny Cage...he isn't even that good looking (at all). Cage is supposed to be a pretty boy. He should have played Kabal, or Stryker.
Ryguy88 - 1/12/2024, 9:20 PM
@JobinJ - or Kano, but they did get a decent guy to play Kano already
dragon316 - 1/12/2024, 7:40 PM
I like first movie I didn’t like cole and tattoo gives them powers two things didn’t like about first movie but violence and gore is there
DrReedRichards - 1/12/2024, 7:47 PM
Well, at least they can't posibly f#ck up the Lin Kuei worse than the last MK1 game did, so there's that...

At least Snow Blind was amazing and Cage Match was fun.
ObserverIO - 1/13/2024, 5:13 AM
You know who I loved from MK II the game? This guy:

Kintaro. They never seem to do anything with him, but he's got a great look. I'd like to see a movie version of him, I think it'd be something they could do a lot with.
JobinJ - 1/13/2024, 7:08 AM
@ObserverIO - he’s goro with stripes. Not that different.
ObserverIO - 1/13/2024, 7:18 AM
@JobinJ - He's tiger Goro! Someone sat and thought, Goro looks great, but what would make him even better? I know! And then we got Tiger Goro. Looks awesome, imo.
