The 2021 film’s sequel is currently in the works, with Simon McQuoid set to return as director of the upcoming sequel. McQuoid directs from a screenplay by Jeremy Slater, which will see the fighters of Earthrealm continue their fight against Outworld to protect our existence.
Kitana is a longtime fighter in the “Mortal Kombat” video game series, who made her arcade debut in “Mortal Kombat II”, which was first released in 1993. She is best known for her signature and his murderous steel war fans. Kitana is initially introduced as the daughter of Outworld Emperor Shao Kahn. It is later revealed that Kahn murdered his father, the former Emperor, to gain control of his homeland, Edenia. Kitana is also the daughter of fellow longtime “MK” fighter, Sindel, and the sister or clone role model of fan-favorite Mileena, who also debuted in Mortal Kombat II.
The video games originally featured Mileena as Kitana’s “twin sister”. Kitana would later turn on Outworld and ally with Earthrealm’s special forces in their fight against Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung.
