Director Kevin Tancharoen has taken to Twitter once again to reveal a new image from season 2 of Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Since filming began on the second season of Legacy Kevin has been rather forthcoming in giving us teases of what’s to come in the form of simple character or set snapshots. Now with the first footage of MK: Legacy Season 2 set to debut early next month, Kevin has shared an image showing the complete cast.
Last month we received some nice character teases in the form of Liu Kang and Princess Kitana’s wardrobe. Those images, however nice they were, pale in comparison to seeing the entire MK cast stand together for a nice group shot, presumably taken once production the series ended in early December.
Featuring some familiar faces such as Scorpion and Liu Kang, this new cast image provides us with our first look at Kenshi (played by Dan Southworth), Shang Tsung in his regal looking costume, and Mark Dacascos looking like a boss as Kung Lao.
The main cast of Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2
In addition to seeing the characters we know, some mysterious looking faces that haven’t been hinted at previously are also in this cast image. It’s likely that the hooded figure next to Scorpion is Reptile unless Baraka has undergone yet another redesign from his appearance in S1 of Legacy. But at this point we have nothing but speculation to base our theories on unless Kevin makes an announcement via Twitter.
More interesting however, besides how beautiful Kitana and Mileena are looking, is who are the remaining two mystery figures in the cast shot. The most notable figure that MK fans are trying to decipher is the man standing next to Johnny Cage (Casper Van Dien).
Clad in all white and standing alongside Shang Tsung, it could be possible that this could be the new Raiden, seeing as how the god of thunder has to play a part in season 2 somehow. Upon closer inspection of the white garbed figure it does seem like there’s something hanging on his back, perhaps the iconic coolie hat that Raiden is know to wear during combat.

The black clad figure standing tall next to Stryker (Eric Jacobus) is a bit harder to figure out compared to the possible Raiden development. This could be Sub-Zero’s new design, but it’s also possible that this could be Ermac (who was once confirmed to appear) or even Noob Saibot if some character swaps were done.
Some of you may be doing some double takes over this cast image since a few familiar faces are missing. It appears that Jax, Sonya Blade, and Kano may be completely out of action in season 2. Besides those omissions during the actual Mortal Kombat tournament, which the season takes place during, it’s unknown if characters such as Quan Chi and Ermac will still appear of if they were written out.
All together I’m impressed with how good the cast of MK: Legacy Season 2 looks and I think it’s safe to say that most, if not all, of us are excited to see the first trailer arrive next month.
