The director of ‘Mortal Kombat 2’ has been revealed
I would say that mortal combat falls into the medium category. Even if the scenario lacked a bit of finesse, mortal combat provided plenty of great action sequences and perhaps most importantly, it was HBO Max’s most successful movie launch upon release. As in Hollywood, a sequel has finally been announced and we now know who will be in charge of Mortal Kombat 2.

The sequel technically doesn’t have a title but we’re tentatively calling it Mortal Kombat 2 for the moment. Deadline has confirmed that Simon McQuoid will return as director, having directed the previous film. Perhaps more exciting though, Mortal Kombat 2 has a brand new writer on board who might iron out some of the first movie’s plot issues.
Jeremy Slater is about to write Mortal Kombat 2the scenario of. You probably know Slater best for writing Marvel’s moon knight series. Personally, I think this bodes very well for the project. The MCU is going through something of a midlife crisis right now, but moon knight is certainly one of the most remarkable projects of phase four.
Previously, it was reported that iconic character Johnny Cage would likely appear in Mortal Kombat 2. Speaking to ComicBook, Slater said: “Johnny Cage is one of my favorite characters […] I think if he wasn’t included in the sequel at all, it would be very strange. It’s still a bit uncertain how much of it will be included, it’s one of the things we’re working on right now. I’m sure fans will be keeping an eye out for casting news.
