The Mortal Kombat reboot surprised fans with Cole Young being the Chosen One against Shang Tsung’s forces. Many assumed it’d have been Liu Kang, which has been the case in the video games and past movies. However, the movie does create immense potential for him thanks to his deadly past and a shocking revelation that should drive a Shaolin Monks movie.
Seeing as Kung Lao was killed pretty quickly, it’d be great seeing how their sibling-like bond developed. Fans did love how Kung Lao was depicted, not just for his badass attitude and brutal Fatality on Nitara, but also for that extra bit of arrogance not usually found within the Lotus Clan. What’s most appealing about all this is how Kung Lao helped mentor Liu Kang after the latter was taken in off the streets.
