Whoops!

14K

A Mortal Kombat fan has pointed out that the Joker from the game looks incredibly similar to a porn parody version.

Travis Shaw Tweeted the comparison, and now we can’t see anything else. Obviously, it’s an unfortunate coincidence, but also hilarious.

GameRant found out that the image comes from a video entitled ‘Katwoman XXX’. Their are some subtle references, as the role of Joker is referred to as “Gangster” and the actor’s name is Dale DaBone.

This comes after the Mortal Kombat 11 DLC announcement was accidentally made early.

You may have seen that an official countdown to the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack trailer was uploaded to YouTube. At 9am EST on August 21, the countdown was supposed to be replaced by the MK11 Kombat Pack trailer. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, it turns out quite a bit. Clever fans realised that by using the URL of the countdown, you could discover a variety of thumbnails from the trailer. One of which shows all of the Mortal Kombat 11 DLC characters – including the Terminator and the Joker. PLUS, the dates they’re all due to be released.

Fans took to Twitter to share their delight – especially regarding the Terminator.

As we all know by now, Mortal Kombat has gotten the silver-screen treatment with a movie due out early 2021.

Written by the ever-impressive Greg Russo, the upcoming game-to-movie adaptation has gotten a lot of people hyped, but it isn’t the only video game project Russo has his sights on.

Speaking to ComicBook, Russo admitted that he’d love to find a way to bring the iconic 2K Games and Irrational Games title, BioShock, to the big screen.

“I would love to figure out a way to do BioShock and I’ve tried,” said Russo. “I’ve been like elbowing everybody I can possibly find, because I think I have a really awesome way to do it that would be really fun. And bring the horror of it to the forefront and hopefully keep the budget at a manageable price. But yeah, that’s one that I’d absolutely adore, that be a lot of fun to work on.”

The 2007 game is a staple title for millions of gamers across the globe, and it’s the first game in a series that’s been sorely missed during this generation of consoles.

Featuring a creepily quiet dystopian world, Big Daddies, Little Sisters and one of the best plots of any game ever, BioShock really does have the potential to be a great horror movie.

Unfortunately, video game movies are still looked down on by the gaming community thanks to the mostly-terrible adaptations we’ve seen in the past.

Detective Pikachu is widely considered to be the only video game-based movie that’s broken that tradition and is actually good, though it’s hoped that upcoming video game movies including Uncharted and Netflix’s The Witcher (despite being based on the books, not the games) are also set to be groundbreaking.

Personally I’m totally here for a BioShock movie! Bring it on.

Mortal Kombat is slated to hit movie theaters on March 5, 2021.
