Mortal Kombat 2 Gets Another Big Name; Tati Gabrielle to Play Jade

Tati Gabrielle to be in Mortal Kombat 2 IMDB

There are indications that Tati Gabrielle may join the cast of Mortal Kombat 2, assuming the role of Jade. According to an article, Gabrielle is currently in the final stages of negotiation for the much-anticipated sequel.

Fans of the Mortal Kombat game must know that her character, Jade, wasn't present in the first MK game either; instead, she debuted in the second title. It seems fitting that the movies are also following suit. Jade is an assassin and a close companion of Kitana; the latter was also missing from the 2021 movie. Kitana is also expected to debut in the upcoming sequel, however, who will play her hasn't been made public.

Actor's Previous Work

Tati Gabrielle has starred in multiple high-profile shows and movies. Mortal Kombat 2 will be her second video-game movie, as just last year, she played the role of Jo Braddock in the Uncharted movie. She has also appeared in The 100, The Owl House, and Netflix's You, and received wide recognition thanks to her role in another successful Netflix show called Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Johnny Cage Actor Almost Confirmed

Joining Gabrielle in Mortal Kombat 2 is Karl Urban, known for his roles in Dredd, Star Trek, and more recently, The Boys. He's expected to portray the iconic character Johnny Cage. If you stuck around the credits of the first movie, you would have noticed the post-credit scene teasing the fan-favorite character. Visit our previous article for additional details.

The next few years are going to be amazing for Mortal Kombat fans. Just recently, NetherRealm Studios announced Mortal Kombat 1, a sequel and soft reboot of the existing video game series. The game will launch September 19 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

Possible Release Window

The sequel film will be directed by Simon McQuoid, who also helmed the 2021 Mortal Kombat movie. Jeremy Slate, who previously worked on Moon Knight and The Umbrella Academy, will be responsible for the screenplay. Slate is also working on Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.
