3rd Mortal Kombat movie news
According to MK5.org, there's been a post up on Lynn Red Williams' website for awhile mentioning that he's going to be starring in the 3rd MK movie.  Williams was the big guy who played Jax in Mortal Kombat Annihilation, and I think he played the part pretty well.  His site also says that Christopher Lambert will be returning to play as Raiden, which I think is a sign that this movie should be better than the second because Chris was probably the best character in the first movie.  Oh, and Lynn's site also mentions that the 3rd MK movie will allow us to see the end of an important character... hmm... could it be Jax?  We're just gonna have to wait and see.

Next EGM issue to have MK: Deadly Alliance info
Planet MK recently broke the news that next month's issue of EGM Magazine will feature exclusive info of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance (MK5).  They may be doing an interview with Midway, so keep on the lookout for this issue, but don't get too excited since everyone knows that the internet is about 2-3 months aheads of newsstand mags.

What's up with java?
In case you didn't notice, when I put this page back up last month I did a litle updating to the Old News page and put a java navigation bar that you can use to access old news.  But, from what I can see, it does not work on the internet.  I made it with a trial program and it works fine on my computer when I use Netscape Composer, but online it doesn't seem to work.  I think I uploaded all the right files, but if anyone reading this knows anything about java stuff, e-mail me with a  little help or else I'll have to take it down and figure something else out.

Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance?
I think by now it's pretty official.  All over the web it's been reported that on December 21st, Midway Games released the title of an upcoming game - Mortal Kombat: Deadly AlliancePlanet MK was the first to drop the news, and we're all taking a guess that this title will probably replace "Mortal Kombat 5" for the title of the next game.  But, guess if you will, the answer is almost definately yes because a few days before the 21st, Midway registered the domains http://www.mortalkombatdeadlyalliance.com and http://www.mkdeadlyalliance.com.  Don't bother trying them yet because they don't work, but sooner or later we could see some action happening.  So, there you have it, the next MK game could be called Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, which I think is way better than calling it MK5.  This title gives it more of a dark and tag-teamish sort of feeling, which would work well with storylines and things like that.  What do you think?  Go to the message board and post your thoughts on this matter... since it is the best thing to happen to MK since rye on bread.

NEW MK Character - Tassia
We'll give credit to MK5.org for this one.  Two days ago they discovered that Midway, just 3 days before registering the new MK title, also made a trademark of the name "Tassia".  There's a 30 day waiting period to get a trademark across, and those 30 days are up and signs are looking good.  This could possibly be a new character for the next MK game - MK5 or Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.  MK5.org does note that MK Special Forces had a female boss in it named "Tasia" with one "s", but they also found out that in a chat transcript with Ed Boon from August 25th, 1999, Boon replied "VERY good chance of that!!" to a question concerning the return of Black Dragon Organization members.  So, a new female ninja from Kano's background?  Sounds good to me.  Make sure you sign up for Midway's Mortal Kombat Breaking News Newsletter so you can stay on top of things, and if you have any info regarding these updates, drop me a line.

Things you need to know
Just a few things I need to point out to everyone.  First, lots of people have been sending me test answers submitted from the test page and have left the e-mail box blank.  I cannot respond unless you enter your e-mail too, because if not the e-mail comes to me as my screen name, not yours.  So please, if you submitted a test answer and haven't gotten a reply within a few days after you do so, then you forgot to give me your address.  So, try again, and this time enter your e-mail address as well.  Alright, second, the message board has been really slow since it's been created.  E-mail me if there is some sort of problem with it.  I think the trouble may be that the site requires that you have an account to use the board, so if it does, take two seconds to make one and post away.  I think that's it... oh wait... in 2 days it's the MK Empire's 4th anniversary.  Wow, what a long time that is!  Woohoo, where's that champagne?

The third MK movie ditches the name
The guys over at Planet MK were first to report that the third MK Movie will most likely not be called Mortal Kombat Domination.  Threshold Entertainment has confirmed this themselves, and they say that they will give all correct information to IMDB as soon as they know who is definitly writing the movie.  Also, Planet MK has reported that a german site by the name of GameStar has confirmed that Scorpion, Jax, Sub-Zero, and Raiden will be in MK5, which could possibly be released for the PC too.  That's cool.
