Adeline Rudolph, known for her role in The Hidden World of Sabrina, has been confirmed to play the iconic character Kitana in the upcoming sequel of Mortal Kombat. The first movie adaptation of the popular video game franchise was a success on HBO Max but failed to perform well at the box office. Nevertheless, it has received widespread acclaim, ensuring a sequel. Tati Gabrielle from the same production is also set to join the cast and play Jade.
Kitana, the princess of Edenia, is a legendary character in the Mortal Kombat series. Her tragic backstory makes her a formidable warrior, scarred by manipulation and tragedy, yet always enduring. Her appearance has gone through several changes over the years, but her defining features are her metal fans, which she uses as weapons. Talisa Soto played Kitana in the first two Mortal Kombat movies.
The upcoming sequel to Mortal Kombat is shaping up to have an impressive cast, with Karl Urban recently announced to play Johnny Cage. The film is written by Jeremy Slater and directed by Simon McQuoid. The Mortal Kombat franchise has been adapted into different media over the years, including film, television, animated series, comic books, and novels. Despite mixed reviews for some adaptations, the franchise’s popularity and legacy continue to thrive in pop culture.
