Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2 Web Series Set for 2013, Cast News


Mortal Kombat LogoWarner Bros. has announced that the second season of Kevin Tancharoen’s “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” web series will be premiering on Machinima in early 2013, with the first clip from the series to premiere on something called The Streamy Awards on February 17, 2013.

Tancharoen will return to direct and co-write the series, along with Josh Baizer and Marshall Johnson. The new series, we’re told, will “uncover the rivalries and histories of these fierce warriors as Raiden and his recruits clash against the dark forces of Outworld”.

Says Tancharoen:

Fans are in for a real treat with the second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy. With added visual effects and storylines that dive deeper into our warriors as they make their way to the tournament, we’re taking this series to a whole new level. I’m really looking forward to showing fans the first clip during the Streamy Awards on February 17.

The cast of “Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2″ will include Harry Shum, Jr. (“Glee”) as the warlord adviser “Kuai Liang,” Casper Van Dien (“Starship Troopers”) as martial arts film actor “Johnny Cage,” Brian Tee (“The Wolverine”) as Shaolin Monk “Liu Kang,” Mark Dacascos (“Cradle 2 the Grave “) as “Kung Lao” – a close friend of “Liu Kang,” Ian Anthony Dale (“Hawaii Five-O”) returns as the resurrected ninja “Scorpion,” and reprising his role he made famous in the “Mortal Kombat” theatrical release – Cary Tagawa as the powerful, arrogant sorcerer “Shang Tsung.”

Still no word on how this will affect that big-screen movie reboot that Tancharoen was supposed to helm in the wake of the first “Mortal Kombat: Legacy”…

    First of all Tagawa back as Shang Tsung?!?! Count me in! A little mad that they replaced Johnny Cage, and Can Dien? Really? Otherwise sounds good. Love me some Mark Dacasscos, and he should be a good King Lau. Hope we get some more Has, and Sonya. And I liked the guy that was Raised but let’s cast Russel Wong instead.

      He looks basically the same. I saw him on the special features for Starship Troopers: Invasion. But does he have any Martial Arts talent? They should’ve kept the other guy, or hired Scott Adkins!!!
