Shaggy from Scooby-Doo may have failed to make his way into Mortal Kombat 11 (officially, at least), but that hasn’t stopped fans from continuing to campaign for what they believe in. A recently-spotted MK 11 petition is currently making the rounds courtesy of Change.org, only this time it’s hoping for popular hitman John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves, to enter combat.
Started by a user named Bruh Moment, the (slightly old) petition reads as follows: “John Wick would be a great addition to the list of characters in Mortal Kombat 11. His form of combat is very unique which could be great for combos, and he has a vast variety of weapons going as far as even a pencil.
“It could be possible for them to add him as a DLC character due to the fact that they haven’t released the DLC characters yet. John Wick is also a very relevant character since the third addition of the franchise came out just a few days before I made this petition.”
The petition at this time has only gathered 231 signatures, so I’m not sure how much traction it will gain across social media, especially since it’s been a few months now. However you could argue that John Wick is a far greater fit for the Mortal Kombat universe than Shaggy (sorry Scooby fans, but it’s true).
I’d personally love to see John Wick executing the likes of Kano with a pencil and hardback book. It’s also possible that developers NetherRealm Studios could add John Wick as future DLC, so you never truly know.
I’ve signed the petition, will you? Don’t forget to get talking and sharing across our social media channels to see how far this campaign can go, otherwise, you might just be John Wick’s next victim! You can sign it for yourself right here.
