In Mortal Kombat (2021), even death could not stop Scorpion from making the final appearance in the last moment, and therefore one cannot help to wonder what can actually stop his appearance in Mortal Kombat 2.
Till long, there was no information available regarding what the future of the franchise held but now, there has been an announcement that a sequel will be there. Mortal Kombat experiences a normal box-office performance.
However, it was a huge hit on HBO Max which actually confirmed that there will be a sequel to the movie. In Mortal Kombat, the tournament was not shown but in Mortal Kombat, a clash between the realms is expected.
The Rising Popularity of Scorpion
Scorpion of Mortal Kombat was a huge hit both in the game and the movie and Scorpion have become one of the most recognizable faces in the franchise. Scorpion is considered a playable character because of the tragic background that fuels the revenge. In the latest cover of Mortal Kombat, one can see Scorpion.
The journey of Scorpion was no different in the movie too. He enjoyed a glorified cameo in the 1995’s Mortal Kombat and also became a central element in the 2021 reboot.
Even though Hanzo Hasashi was a central character of the 2021 reboot, the movie was not entirely about Hanzo’s perspective. In fact, the new Mortal Kombat decided to bring a new twist to the game by following an original character that is linked to Scorpion.
The Return Of Scorpion In Mortal Kombat
Mortal Kombat has always featured Scorpion in some capacity and therefore, it is hard to imagine that Mortal Kombat 2 will not feature Scorpion by bringing him back. Scorpion has walked several times in and out of the NetherRealm in different media. Death has never been an obstacle for Scorpion.
At the end of Mortal Kombat, even though the revenge of Scorpion was shown to be completed, there are still few reasons for him to return to the Earthrealm. It is expected that Scorpion will make a return to fight his arch-nemesis again.
What To Expect From Mortal Kombat 2?
It is believed that Scorpion will be seen making an appearance in Mortal Kombat 2. Last year, the movie chose not to show the journey of Hanzo in the NetherRealm and therefore, made it difficult for the audience to know where exactly the loyalties of the character lie.
If Mortal Kombat 2 follows the footstep of the saga, Scorpion might be seen fighting like a champion of Shinnok. Further, the missing plot of Hanzo’s journey in the first movie might be covered in Mortal Kombat 2 by showing the deal that took place between the leader of NetherRealm and Scorpion.
