Warner Bros. Animation Is Developing a MORTAL KOMBAT Animated Film with Joel McHale


There’s been a good amount of animation news spilling out of Warner Bros. recently. We recently shared the news that DC was developing animated film adaptations for Batman: The Long Halloween and Superman: Red Son.

I’ve heard that Warner Bros. have been freaking out over these leaks, and they can’t figure out who is leaking the info. Apparently, these announcements weren’t supposed to happen for another year. But all the news is originating from Revenge of the Fans, and now they have another piece of animated movie news.

They are reporting that WB Animation is also developing a Mortal Kombat movie. They also revealed that Community star Joel McHale will be voicing one of the characters. They don’t know really know who he’s playing, but they speculate that he could take on the role of Johnny Cage, which would make sense.

They also say that former Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter, who voiced Selina Kyle in Batman By Gaslight, is in the cast. They suggest that she might be playing Sonya Blade. As for the rest of the cast, theres the following:

  • Darin DePaul (Spider-Man PS4, Justice League Action)

  • Fred Tatasciore (Voltron)

  • Grey Griffin (Young Justice, Avengers Assemble)

  • Ike Amadi (Avengers Assemble, Trollhunters)

  • Kevin Michael Richardson (Justice League vs The Fatal Five)

  • Patrick Seitz (Has voiced Scorpion for all of the new MK games)

  • Robin Atkin Downes (Disenchantment, Voltron, a ton more)

  • Steve Blum (Voiced Sub-Zero in the Mortal Kombat reboot game)

  • Jordan Rodrigues (Dance Academy)

There aren’t any other details revealed for the film, but are you excited to learn that Warner Bros. is going to make an animated Mortal Kombat movie? Maybe this will lead to a Mortal Kombat DC movie crossover!
