Mortal Kombat Film Shows How Scorpion got his iconic Kunai Weapon Explains

Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat Updates: Director Simon McQuoid has formally confirmed the forthcoming Mortal Kombat movie would show how Scorpion received his signature Kunai weapon. The new Mortal Kombat film will show how Scorpion got his Kunai Weapon signature.

Directed by Simon McQuoid and developed by James Wan of The Conjuring, the 2021 Mortal Kombat movie is the very first theatrical release of the legendary martial arts video game series since the widely 1997 Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. On April 16, the latest film will be released for viewing on HBO Max and also in theatres.

Fans have strong aspirations for the feature film, as it not only represents the revival of a long-loved movie franchise but also takes the characters from the original arcade game to reality, including Scorpion (Hiroyuki Sanada), Liu Kang (Ludi Lin), Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee),  Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim), Kano (Josh Lawson) and Raiden (Tadanobu Asano).

Fans are undoubtedly very eager to see Scorpion, of all the Mortal Kombat heroes, the immortal spiteful specter who has been the symbol of the official video game from the start.

Scorpion originally began as an unwarranted enemy after featuring in every generation of the game. But he eventually regained his human figure as years progressed and played a supportive role in the Netherrealm.

Now, all of his trademark features, including his feudal rivalry with Sub-Zero, his famous “Get Over Here!” catchphrase, and even his fatal Kunai sword that he used to violently destroy his enemies in both death and life, is honored by the latest film. It has been announced that Mortal Kombat will dive into the story arc of Scorpion, showing how his harpoon-like weapon was found.

McQuoid claimed in an interview with IGN that Mortal Kombat will explain how the yellow-clad fighter obtained rights for his Kunai blade patent. Implying that he had switched to Japanese history to respect the culture of the character, the director disclosed that in ancient Japan, Kunai was traditionally used as a gardening instrument.

This is why Scorpion would have to fashion it into workable ammo using a rope that gruesomely penetrates enemies and gets the ‘work completed.’

That was a blend that Scorpion designed himself, revealing genuinely how people used available tools for their safety and security in early Japan.

Having the backstory of Kunai in the movie is potentially a daring plot decision that replicates past portrayals.

But really, it appeals to a greater purpose: to show the commitment of the update to detail and to reconfirm its genuine adaptation. Being that, once the upcoming film launches in April, fans’ curiosity over Kunai will surely be settled down.
