Following the release of Mortal combatSimon McQuoid Trailer Spoke With IGN to break down exciting images. This conversation included McQuoid teasing an epic fight between Sub-Zero and Scorpion which is momentarily seen in the trailer. He revealed that the knockdown between the legendary fighters is part of the opening of the film and is a particularly unpleasant exchange.
It’s really about seeing [Scorpion’s] evolution on the screen and the ingredients, both emotional and physical as to why he becomes Scorpio. And this is explained through the opening of our film. And it’s a pretty brutal and nasty fight.
The fight between Scorpion and Sub-Zero that opens Mortal combat won’t be exactly what some fans might expect. The encounter takes place in feudal Japan, centuries before the film’s current history. Scorpio does not yet have any powers and is known as Hanzo Hasashi. But, this sequence is also where Scorpion first makes his signature kunai weapon. Since Hanzo is expected to be out of service until the present day, this brutal fight is expected to end with Sub-Zero as the winner.
Mortal combat will not only feature this unique fight between Scorpion and Sub-Zero. Trailers have teased more fights between the two, so it looks like Scorpion will get a rematch at some point. Their multiple fights and those among other competitors presented throughout the Mortal combat The trailer shows just how action-packed the movie will be. And with two fights between Scorpion and Sub-Zero teased so far, there’s a good chance a third will take place to show which one really is the better fighter.
