Mortal Kombat movie screenwriter Greg Russo discusses the tone in his script, and how it's similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe

We hear Hawkeye gets his head ripped off by Scorpion

The Mortal Kombat movie franchise reboot gets closer and closer to becoming official with each passing day. Did you know that the screenwriter for the project is none other than Greg Russo, one of the two-man team that has helped create multiple films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Mr. Russo appears to be a big fan of Mortal Kombat as well, and in an interview with DiscussingFilm.net, he goes of the tone he used for his Mortal Kombat script.

“Is there really a super serious dark version of this? Yeah, I guess, but that’s not Mortal Kombat to me. Just look at Kano as an example, he’s a great character. He’s always cracking jokes. To me there needs to a certain levity and a fun tone. While there is violence and there is fighting and real stakes and emotional stakes for all the people involved at the end of the day it still should be fun and a sense of humor. As much as I hate to throw up the direct comparison to Marvel they’re still fun and always cracking jokes but obviously ours will be a bit more adult.”

Cassie Cage takes after her father with one of her Mortal Kombat 11 moves

I'll take a fatality instead, thank you

Johnny Cage is famous for attacking the nether-regions of his opponents, and Cassie Cage seems to have the same affinity. One of her X-Ray moves is, as you can see, a pretty painful attack. A lot of moves in Mortal Kombat 11 are pretty gruesome, but this one has that extra squirm factor.
