A Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe Movie Pitch Got Rejected By Warner Bros.

The idea was presented to the studio by the Scorpion's Revenge writer Jeremy Adams.

Story Highlights

  • Jeremy Adams, a Mortal Kombat writer, has revealed that Warner Bros. had “rebuffed” his pitch for the Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe movie.
  • He had presented the idea a while ago and right now he is not aware of any Warner Bros. plans for the crossover movie idea.
  • Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was released on November 16, 2008. It is available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox One.

The Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe movie pitch was rejected by Warner Bros. Jeremy Adams, the writer of several Mortal Kombat and some DC projects including Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge revealed that he had pitched the idea to the studio only to be “rebuffed.” The fighting video game was a huge success in 2008 and fans have since been demanding more content along the game’s line.

Jeremy was talking to the renowned industry news website, ComicBook.com. The interviewer asked him whether being involved with several Mortal Kombat and “quite a few” DC projects was leading up to something. And if the fans should hold any expectations. In response to this, he said that he would advise them to “lower your expectations” as he had actually pitched the idea to Warner Bros. “a while ago” but the studio had rejected it.

I would lower your expectations. I don’t know if they have any plans to do more. I do know that we pitched that a while ago, but it was kind of rebuffed.”

Like many Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe admirers, this baffled the interviewer. Because there has been an ever-increasing number of voices calling for another Mortal Kombat and DC crossover project, especially after the release of Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge in 2020. Jeremy, despite being uncertain, was hopeful that the studio would plan something over this idea and that he would love to be involved with such a project.

I don’t know if they’re ever going to do any more. I hope they do, and I hope they call me to be involved. That would be great because I really love it. But I don’t know. I don’t know. I think it would be really cool though. Trust me, I would love to see a DC Mortal Kombat. That would be super, super cool.”

Warner Bros. owns rights to both of these franchises and has all the things at its disposal to make the wishes of its fans come true. Looking at the demand for a Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe-like project, it will be no surprise if the studio considers such a possibility in the future.
