    Doesn't really matter since He's Asian now I guess.

    Firstly, you're blind, and secondly, I didn't say none of them look white-- I asked which one looks like Christopher Lambert.

    I don't know who could look at the character in the original game, how he looked, what he was wearing, what he sounded like, and think, "I know who should play this guy in a movie: Christopher Lambert!" Everyone who came to the franchise after that movie, or because of that movie has preconceived ideas of what they think he is. Because they use Lambert as the starting point for their impression of the character rather than the first two games. But he's not even human so it doesn't matter.

    And maybe check yourself. "Oh no, the character with the Japanese name and Asian motif outfit isn't white! But I'll be brave and get through this somehow!" Who cares?

    Huh, good point. I don't see a resemblance, either. Despite this, as well as the fact that Lambert's version of the character had a very different personality than the Raiden from the games, I still think he and most of the other actors in the first movie did fine jobs in their roles. If they were still young (and, in Trevor Goddard's case, alive), I wouldn't mind seeing them return.

    Sorry, couldn't resist.
    Another good point. An Asian or Japanese actor would make a lot more sense, even if Raiden himself isn't technically Asian. I'm still not sure this actor in particular was the right choice, but that could just be because, as stated in a previous post, I haven't seen much of him. Who knows? Maybe he'll surprise me.

    Are you high? Not once has Midway/NRS ever portrayed Raiden as Asian. He has always looked like an older white male and has never had an Asian accent. He has never once been referred to as a "Japanese" god in any of his game bios. He has always just been "god of thunder and protector of earthrealm."

    And stop trying to turn this into some racist, intolerant tirade for anyone who doesn't like the casting. It has nothing to do with that. It has to do with Hollywood once again ignoring source material to score woke points.

    I would be equally as annoyed if they cast a non-asian person to portray Liu Kang, Kund Lao, etc.

    How da heck did they getting DC to agree to this?

    They'll actually have to let Joker kill/be killed on screen.

    Considering that's what happened in Injustice's intro, I think that's enough for him. Also, he's a villain. People don't care if villains die.

    Since Warner Bros owns Mortal Kombat and DC Comics, and since The Joker is pretty infamous for killing people, and has been shown to be killed before, I assume negotiations must have been easier than before.

    I feel bad for all the Evil Dead fans who thought Ash was going to be in this pack, but if the rumors are true, if we really are getting 19 DLC characters in total, then there's still hope.

    That said, words cannot express how excited I am to see The Clown Prince of Crime, one of my favorite villains in all of fiction, in an uncensored Mortal Kombat game! "Hello, NetherRealm, Joker's back in town! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!"

    I hope there’s an endoskeleton skin for Terminator!

    Speaking of endoskeleton, he better have one when a fatality is performed on him. I don't want to see brains and a heart, etc. I hate how Frost just has generic human innards when getting chopped up even though she's clearly an advanced cyborg.

    Granted yes joker has killed before but that usually reserved for the in comics. When it comes to other media they usually have it censored in some way so you don't see all the gore and it's actually kinda rare to see outside the comics.

    I'd wager the prospect of that guest character MK vs DC cash more than makes up for the concerns of Joker's guts being spilled :p 

    Oh I agree, gotta emphasize the mechanics on old Terminator. With Frost, there is at least that notion that Kronika's method of cyberization is well beyond the norm; the other cyber Lin Kuei are but a brain and spine in a metal body, but Frost is a seamless mix of flesh and metal, perfectly intermingled and indistinguishable.

    Even if we don't get all 19, there is still a chance Ash is a bonus fighter that's outside the DLC season pack. It happened before iirc.
    You're not the only one. I'll never unheard his iconic Joker voice.
    Same. You know what was a weird hope of mine? That the Terminator would have some Cyber Lin kuei in him, kind of like how Alien had some Baraka in it.
    Also same.

    I guess DC is ok with their characters having their spines ripped put in Mortal Kombat.
