Fans of the Mortal Kombat franchise have been buzzing with excitement thanks to Mortal Kombat 2 producer Todd Garner’s recent behind-the-scenes teases. Garner has been sharing glimpses of the production, sparking speculation and anticipation among fans.
Last week, Garner revealed a set featuring a cracked stone floor bathed in red light. Many fans assumed this was a glimpse of Netherrealm, a pivotal location in the Mortal Kombat universe. In his latest post, Garner shared another photo of a set’s flooring, with red lights and a bluescreen visible just off-camera. While he isn’t giving away any details, fans continue to speculate that Mortal Kombat 2 might indeed venture into Netherrealm.
The 2021 Mortal Kombat movie set the stage for the franchise, introducing Cole Young and laying the foundation for future installments. With the sequel, the addition of Johnny Cage (played by Karl Urban) promises to bring even more action. While plot details are scarce, the first film hinted at Shang Tsung’s plans to bring an army next time, potentially leading to action in Netherrealm, where he might gather his forces before launching an assault on Earthrealm.
Regardless of the specific location, these behind-the-scenes shots confirm that the red-drenched set will play a significant role in Mortal Kombat 2. Garner’s consistent teasing suggests that this setting will be a central part of the film. If fan theories about Netherrealm are correct, it will add an exciting dimension to the movie’s world.
As of now, Mortal Kombat 2 does not have an official release date. Speculation points to a 2024 release, but this remains unconfirmed. Filming began in June but was briefly suspended due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, which ended in November. The strike’s impact on the release date is uncertain, but fans can expect more updates as production progresses.
Karl Urban’s inclusion as Johnny Cage has generated significant buzz, and fans are eagerly awaiting the next installment in the Mortal Kombat film series. With these behind-the-scenes teases, anticipation for Mortal Kombat 2 continues to build among fans.
