It was just a week ago that the initial report surfaced that Warner Bros. Animation would be concocting a new animated film centered on the Mortal Kombat universe. With promising figures involved with the recent slew of films following the notorious Caped Crusader, the same was expected for this new entry for the series initially crafted by NetherRealm Studios.
Although we do have confirmation that the film would be arriving fairly soon for fans to witness just what this is all about onward in 2020 in late Spring, we do not have much detail retaining what this project is based on or how storytelling will be implemented for the upcoming film. That was until now as IGN was granted the opportunity to debut the first trailer for the animated movie.
