Earlier today, I watched one of my favorite childhood movies…Mortal Kombat. The movie based off the classic arcade style fighting video game.

For 90s kids like myself, this was a staple video game of our childhood which has obviously released many more titles along the way. The latest release coming about a year ago.

The movie franchise didn’t last long. The first movie was fantastic becoming a total cult classic. Shortly after, the sequel Mortal Kombat Annihilation absolutely bombed. I enjoyed the wide range of all the characters featured in the sequel including Nightwolf, Smoke and a larger role for Jax. However, many hated it.

It pretty much broke all of our hearts when Johnny Cage was murdered by Shao Kahn in the first 5 minutes. You sons of bitches! That’s why your movie bombed!

When it was announced a few years back that a total reboot was in the works, the nostalgia flowed through my veins exciting me. The new live action R-rated reboot is set for 2021. The cast is real solid. I can’t wait to see it.

That being said, I thought what a great way than to draft my fantasy lineup for each character if you will. I will include the characters of the first two games excluding a few such as a Noob Saibot. I will add some face characters from the third installment and beyond. I am not up to date enough to speak on the newer characters like Cassie Cage and Frost.
