Mortal Kombat may be getting Green Lantern if recent rumors prove to be true. A video showing the DC hero in the Mortal Kombat character selection screen has appeared online. Since the PS3 version of MK will be getting Kratos as a playable character many gamers have been wondering if the Xbox 360 version will receive a similar exclusive. I happen to be one of the people who have been speculating like mad about which character it would be but I never would have guessed Green Lantern. As much as I want to believe, someone could have just used footage from MK vs DC to make this. My fingers are still crossed for the Chief.
While this certainly is still a rumor, the video is fairly convincing. Plus we already know that Mortal Kombat and DC Comics have a relationship. Both MK and GL are owned by Warner Bros, and the Green Lantern movie comes out in a few months, it all kind of makes sense, from a marketing stand point anyway. That being said I highly doubt DC would sign off on having their character brutally ripped in half, the very reason I didn't like MK vs. DC.
What do you think, is this rumor legit? Would Green Lantern be a good fit in Mortal Kombat?
We'll know for sure when Mortal Kombat is released on April 19th.
