Jeremy Slater, just out of the success of the moon_caballero for Disney+, is writing a sequel of 2021 Mortal Kombat, a film that had a huge success in HBO Max and helped boost the success of the application at a time when Warner Bros I didn't win much in cinemas. The sequel is in pre -production, without a specific release date in mind. During a recent Caballero de la Luna interview with Comicbook.com, we asked Slater about the plans for the video game sequel, and joked saying that he plans to have fun with the deaths in MK2. The murders that ended with the fight, which made the original Mortal Kombat the famous video games between the parents of parents are integrated into the DNA of almost all adaptations since then.
Of course, he has to be driven by history and the character, not only as an excuse to slice some1. That is the balance that Slater says he needs to achieve.
"I feel like the blood in Mortal Kombat is incredible and it is part of what people are looking for, you always have to find that balance between the fun gore and the disgusting gore, right?" Said Slater. «Because there are times when you tear someone's heart or the best death in the first film is Kung Lao's rotating hat simply cut it in half and that is the perfect example of fun gore because he is disgusting, but everyone They laugh at the same time, right? You want to make sure that everyone is laughing at the type of boldness of Gore and that they are not sitting disgusted by the early flat and visceral entrails and things like that. There is an ironic aspect of Mortal Kombat in terms of violence and blood, there are some winks to the audience and say: "Yes, we know that this is ridiculous, but it is very fun and we." We are all in the joke together ». And when you find the correct balance, I think that is where you get moments like that first incredibly bloody battle that opens the first film with score with Hanzo destroying all the murderers or get the hat of the hat or things like that. So we are seeing how we emulate those bloody moments of the first that were really successful and obtained great reactions of the audience and how we gave the audience even more this time ».
