Finish him! Get your first look at Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge — the R-rated feature-length animated film coming to Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital in spring 2020 — by watching the trailer in the player above or in the embed below.
Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge sees the champions of Outworld and Earthrealm battle to the death in a tournament that will determine the fate of Earth. The film appears largely inspired by the 2011 Mortal Kombat game, which itself rejiggered elements from the first three games released in the early ‘90s.
Drawing directly from the 2011 game, Scorpion’s Revenge brings back voice actor Patrick Seitz as Scorpion, who also voiced Scorpion in both Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and Mortal Kombat X. But Seitz isn’t the only veteran MK franchise actor cast in Scorpion’s Revenge.
A pair of Mortal Kombat 11 actors join the Scorpion’s Revenge voice ensemble but in different roles than they played in the 2019 game. David B. Mitchell, who played Geras and Sektor in MK11, voices Raiden here while Ike Amadi, who portrayed Shao Kahn and Cyrax in MK11, voices OIA leader Jax Briggs in Scorpion’s Revenge.
For non-gamers. the most notable names in the Scorpion’s Revenge voice cast are certainly Community’s Joel McHale and Dexter’s Jennifer Carpenter as Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade, respectively.

- Joel McHale as Johnny Cage

Behind the scenes, the filmmaking team includes several DC Universe Original Movie creatives, namely Batman: Assault on Arkham’s Ethan Spaulding as director and Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans’ Jeremy Adams as screenwriter, Batman vs. Two-Face’s Rick Morales as producer, and Batman: Gotham by Gaslight’s Jim Krieg as co-producer.
The involvement of so many DC animation veterans shouldn’t come as a surprise, though, seeing as Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge is produced by the same studio. Warner Bros. Animation (who produced Scorpion’s Revenge in coordination with NeatherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment).
