Pride month is gay as fuck.
Hey, at least it's going to be gory.
Ludi Lin was in Power Rangers (2017) which wasn't a great movie, but he has a background in martial arts which makes him suitable for the role of Liu Kang.Ludi Lin is one of the few I'm not familiar with, but what I see in the trailer is good enough to give it a chance.
While on that subject:Also ♂bligaytory:
There are a few possible reasons Johnny Cage isn't in the Mortal Kombat movie, each of which likely played a role in the decision to exclude him. For starters, the new Mortal Kombat stars Lewis Tan as Cole Young, a brand-new character who will serve as the film’s main protagonist. Cole fills the same outsider/audience surrogate role that Cage filled in the original movie, and it’s likely the writers opted to remove him from the ensemble so as to put more narrative focus on the rest of the cast. Mortal Kombat has lots of beloved characters, but they unfortunately can’t all fit in a theatrical-length film.
Cole Young's creation as a new lead hero also points to the reboot’s emphasis on actors and characters of Asian descent. The modern optics of a Caucasian man playing the lead role in a story about martial arts aren’t great, and Cage’s absence is an excellent opportunity to center Cole’s character and other non-Caucasian fighters like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Jax, Raiden, and Liu Kang.
IdPol is and forever will be a mistake.
