First Look at Kristin Kreuk as Chun Li?

To be honest with you, I’m still not sure how little Lana Lang from Smallville is going to transform herself enough to convincingly play a Chinese ass-kicking babe name Chun Li in the upcoming “Street Fighter” movie. Kristin Kreuk isn’t exactly known for her physicality, and didn’t she spend most of her time on Smallville needing to be rescued by Clark Kent aka Superman? (As you can probably tell, I don’t watch that show all that much…)

This may or may not be our very first look at Kristin Kreuk as Chun Lin from “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li”.

Capcom of Japan released the above photo today from the in-production Street Fighter movie, giving us what appears to be our first, heavily artifacted glimpse of Kristin Kreuk as Chun-Li in Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. It’s not the traditional blue outfit we’re used to seeing Chun-Li sporting, but she has to put that thing in the wash sometime. Of course, Capcom may simply have a cache of photos of Kreuk looking dirty and disheveled for times like this, so consider this unconfirmed until we get confirmation from Capcom.

Kristin Kreuk as Chun Li? You decide.

    I can’t see her as Chun-Li, but oh well. If you’re that pissed off at who they chose, then don’t see the movie.

    its okay that kristin kreuk plays chun li since she is part-chinese, although she looks more like caucasian than asian. she also did stunts in smallville and i know she would do well in the fighting scenes.
