Mortal Kombat Finds Its Sub-Zero

Actor and martial artist Joe Taslim is officially our new Sub-Zero in the hard reboot to Mortal Kombat, according to The Wrap.

The new Mortal Kombat, set to be produced by James Wan and directed by Simon McQuoid, is heading into production later this year and will hit theaters March 5, 2021.

Mortal Kombat will be the third theatrical live-action film, but rumors and talk have spread for years about the franchise returning to the big-screen, especially after the internet series Mortal Kombat: Legacy and its sequel were released, showing that these stories and characters have a passionate fanbase.

Taslim appeared in the action movie The Raid, as well as Fast & Furious 6, and Sub-Zero should be a good way to show off his action and fighting talents. I’m not too concerned with his acting abilities as Sub-Zero has never been a layered character with a wide range of depth, so I’m fine with what little I have to go on for Taslim’s acting, and he should work just fine as the chilling fighter. I’m more interested to see who they find for the lead roles, as I would assume that Sub-Zero will not lead the film.

So what do you think? Is Joe Taslim right for Sub-Zero? Who are you hoping to see as a fighter in the new Mortal Kombat? Let me know/Drop a comment below!
