I, like many others, love Mortal Kombat. I also love the newest installment in the series, Mortal Kombat X. It's so fun (yet rage inducing) to set up a game with a few buddies (soon to become former buddies) and have yourself a hell of an interesting time. I recently saw a rumor about James Wan possibly picking up a Mortal Kombat movie project. Well, this is who I think he should use!
Disclaimer: There are missing characters, but these are the ones I really wanted to cast!
If you have yet to see Ninja Assassin, put it on your list of things to do immediately! Such a crazy badass movie. He kicks the hell out of dudes with a chain, much like out friend Scorpion over here. He could kill it as Scorpion.
Johnny Cage- Chris Evans:
Chris Evans can play cocky. (Fantastic Four) He can obviously play badass. (Captain America: Winter Soldier) He's incredibly talented and has the look down.
Sub-Zero- Harry Shum Jr.
Harry is a very naturally talented dancer and stuntman. He was amazing in Mortal Instrument. He also has experience playing this character from the web series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy.
Sonya Blade- Margot Robbie:
She was great in Focus and looks amazing as Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad trailer thus far. I believe Margot is one of the best actresses in Hollywood now. Her stock has been rising since Wolf of Wall Street, and I think she's fantastic for this role.
Mileena & Kitana- Jordana Brewster:
I believe if there happens to be another Mortal Kombat movie, Mileena and Kitana should be played by the same actress. It would show their sisterhood and it would be interesting to see if Jordana could do it!
Jax- Curtis Jackson:
This one is bound to stir up some hate, but I have a ton of faith in Curtis' acting abilities. He has been phenomenal time and time again. He doesn't have much experience with action movies as stunt heavy as this one would be, but I don't think that would be a big issue. He's a determined and talented professional who would kill this role!
Raiden- Keanu Reeves:
Keanu is amazing! Duh. He was awesome in 47 Ronin, one of my favorite performances of him. He would nail it as Raiden.
Kung Lao- Steven Yeun:
He is absolutely phenomenal in The Walking Dead. He would nail this role so hard... Over an over again... With his sharp ass hat.
Liu Kang- Tony Jaa:
Tony Jaa is incredible. Every time I had seen one of his movies I was in awe afterwards. He would make an amazing Liu Kang.
Jade- Jamie Chung:
Jamie Chung is a spitting image of Jade, she would make an absolutely incredible portrayal of her.
Li Mei- Brenda Song:
I know it was a silly Disney movie and everything, but Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior convinces me she could pull this off. She's matured since then and has all the right aspects to nail a role like this.
Sindel- Angelina Jolie:
Angelina is amazing in everything, she is still insanely attractive, but has more aging features now that allows me to see her nailing this role!
