The proposal for a crossover animated movie bringing Mortal Kombat and DC universes together gets declined by the Warner Bros. film studio.

Warner Bros. Rejects Mortal Kombat vs. DC Movie Concept

An animated movie that could have potentially merged the universes of Mortal Kombat and DC was proposed, but Warner Bros., the renowned film and television studio, decided not to proceed with this intriguing concept. This unexpected revelation came from Jeremy Adams, a writer associated with numerous Mortal Kombat and DC animated projects.

In an interview with, Adams shared that their team had pitched the idea of merging these two highly popular franchises, envisaging an animated crossover which unfortunately was turned down by Warner Bros. According to Adams, it's unclear whether the studio has any plans for such a project in the future, and thus suggested fans to keep their expectations low.

Nevertheless, he remains hopeful that such a unique and exciting idea may come to fruition someday. "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 think it would be really cool though. Trust me, I would love to see a DC Mortal Kombat. That would be super, super cool," Adams expressed his expectations and enthusiasm towards the possibility of a DC Mortal Kombat crossover.

The fusion of these two worlds has the potential to create an entertaining spectacle, something that could take the experiences of fans of both franchises to a whole new level. This idea isn't anything unprecedented either - back in 2008, a video game titled 'Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe' was released, which was indeed an amalgamation of the two properties. Additionally, Mortal Kombat characters have made cameo appearances in the Injustice video games.

In terms of the future plans for both the franchises, there are various projects in different stages of development. A sequel to the 2021 live-action Mortal Kombat movie is being prepped up, while the DC movies are planning a major reboot with the forthcoming 'DCU Chapter One: Gods and Monsters'. According to recent reports, none of the current actors from the Justice League are expected to return to their roles in this new universe. The task of leading this massive overhaul is in the capable hands of filmmakers James Gunn and Peter Safran.

Meanwhile, fans of DC can look forward to the upcoming 'Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom', which is all set to hit screens on December 20, this year. For those interested in keeping track of all the future DC projects, comprehensive guides providing information about upcoming movies and TV shows are easily accessible.

One thing that remains certain is that the thought of a DC and Mortal Kombat crossover continues to hang in the air, a tantalizing propect for fans. Though the possibility has been put on hold for the time being, who knows what future may hold?
