Keanu Reeves has addressed the query which seemingly Mortal Kombat fanatics were asking. In an interview with Esquire to sell The Matrix four (thank you, Eurogamer) the internet’s preferred best man was asked approximately whether or not Neo or John Wick could seem in a Mortal Kombat recreation, if it were up to him.
“If it become as much as me? No,” says Reeves, though in place of going straight for the Fatality he then offers Friendship. “Mortal Kombat is excellent in such a lot of approaches, but I think… Um you realize, Neo, John Wick, yeah man they may be doing their very own aspect. Mortal Kombat’s doing their personal factor.”
i really like how he says “first rate in such a lot of approaches.” you can interpret that in such a lot of approaches.
it is likely well worth announcing that the rights to the Neo individual rest with Warner Bros., which submit Mortal Kombat, so this crossover remains a authentic possibility. The loo Wick franchise is managed by Lionsgate.
Reeves’ remark places paid to the hopes of Mortal Kombat lovers who desired to be the only. This changed into mainly folks trying those characters mainly (Mortal Kombat 11 has featured conventional action heroes just like the Terminator, RoboCop, and Rambo) and series co-author Ed Boon sometimes teasing the possibilities.
Boon, currently Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm’s creative director, has in the beyond has mentioned adding Neo and John Wick to the series. He additionally stated at one factor that Neo was advised for Mortal Kombat 9, but they were not positive of the in shape: “I don’t forget [Warner Bros.] introduced up Neo. So there were a whole bunch of ones that for business reasons or that creatively we didn’t suppose they’d in shape,” Boon advised game Informer. Regardless of the lovers suppose, Boon is probably proper: sure characters can suit in among the blood and viscera of Mortal Kombat, however seeing Neo rip someone’s spine out just does not pretty match that individual’s vibe.
Reeves and his characters are found broadly some place else in video games of path, the maximum super recent instance being his turn as Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077. there’s the official and really first rate John Wick Hex, and a large handful of Matrix games: which includes the beat-em-up route of Neo, which saw you increase hell via a re-working of the film storyline before preventing a metropolis-sized Agent Smith.
