Multi award-winning composer handling the score for the new Mortal Kombat movie

The man behind Blade Runner: 2049 takes on Mortal Kombat

While we have to wait until Jan. 2021 to see the new Mortal Kombat movie, details on the project have been trickling in recently. Today we learn just who will be tackling the score for the film, and it's an impressive name.

Composer Benjamin Wallfisch confirmed the news via his official Twitter account, and people have plenty of reason to be excited. Wallfisch has won a Golden Globe, two GRAMMY awards, and been nominated for both a BAFTA and an Emmy for his musical scores. He's provided tunes for notable projects like IT Chapter Two, Shazam, Blade Runner: 2049, Annabelle: Creation, and Hidden Figures.

Mortal Kombat 11 'Joker Vs. Joker' mirror match intro seems to playfully tease Injustice 3

Are you joking?

The official Mortal Kombat Twitter account has shared a quick intro from a Joker versus Joker match in Mortal Kombat 11, and the dialog is certainly interesting. In the conversation, Joker and Joker very clearly hint at a third Injustice game. Whether this is a tease of something to come, or creator Ed Boon's way of saying he'd love to do a third, remains to be seen. If a third Injustice title does come along, hopefully it lands on Switch.

The first trailer for the new Mortal Kombat movie may not drop until Summer 2020

Bloody Summer?!

We've seen a few behind-the-scenes pics of the new Mortal Kombat movie, and also got a peek at the new logo, but when are we going to get something more juicy? Countless fans are eager to see what the film has to offer in the way of a teaser or full-fledged trailer, but unfortunately, it seems we've got quite a bit of time to wait.

Mortal Kombat producer Todd Garner was asked about when we can expect to see a trailer for the film, and he said his best guess is sometime in Summer 2020. With the film launches Jan. 2021, a teaser in Summer 2020 makes a lot of sense. Hopefully we get a few stills before then, though!

New DC skins heading to Mortal Kombat 11

We got to see the full gameplay reveal for the Joker in Mortal Kombat 11 earlier today, but that's not the only DC love the game is getting. A 'DC Elseworlds' skinpack is coming as well, and it includes some costumes fans of DC should be quite familiar with. Included in the lineup is "the menacing 'Darkest Knight' Noob Saibot, reptilian 'Killer Kroc' Baraka, sleek 'Katwoman of Outworld' Kitana, and Time Lord of Apokolips" Geras.

Mortal Kombat 11 'Joker' gameplay trailer seems set for release tomorrow

This town needs an enema!

Earlier this week, Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon teased a Mortal Kombat 11 Joker gameplay trailer. He said the trailer was coming soon, but we didn't know just how soon that would be. Now with another tease, it seems like we have our answer.

There's no doubt that Boon's tease and the above from the Mortal Kombat Twitter account are both pointing to the same thing. I guess we'll see Joker in action tomorrow!

The single screen above is all that was shared alongside Boon's tease, but hopefully we'll get a full look at this trailer before the week closes out.
