Bi-Han’s younger brother Kuai Liang took the mantle of Sub-Zero after Bi-Han was turned into Noob Saibot, however, Kuai Lang has yet to be confirmed to appear in the sequel to the 2021 instalment.
Despite the fact that the character has yet to even be announced for the second movie, Warrior fans have already begun fan-casting Andrew Koki to take on the role of the brother to Taslim’s Bi-Han.
Both Koji and Taslim have fought on screen various times throughout the episodes of the hit series Warrior, which has now sparked fan demands for the two to continue their path together but as Sub-Zero and Noob Saibot in Warner Bros. and New Line’s Mortal Kombat 2.
Warrior Fans Want Andrew Koji As Kuai Lang
In a recent image of Koji and Taslim together posted to Taslim’s Instagram, fans of the two Warrior stars took to the comment section to begin fan-casting Koji as Sub-Zero.
“He should play Kuai Liang subzero instead since he hasn’t been kasted for [Mortal Kombat 2] movie” is what one fan had to say, while others believed the image to even be a potential tease that Koji has already been cast: “Bi-han & Kuai Liang teaser?”
As of writing, the original post has hundreds of comments with many of them being a reference to the theory that Koji is set to become the live-action Kuai Liang alongside Taslim’s Noob Saibot. This is a pretty safe theory to have when considering how well the two have demonstrated both chemistry and action both on and off the screen together.
Many comments prove that fans of the two actors are certain that Koji may already know something that we don’t, however, there’s just no way to prove anything until official news is announced.
Koji recently played Storm Shadow in the Snake Eyes movie as well as starring alongside Brad Pitt in Bullet Train. He has proved in several projects that he’d be up to the task to bring a Mortal Kombat character to the live-action realm, but only time will tell as to if he will be asked to play the next Sub-Zero in the new Mortal Kombat movie series.
As of writing, the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes have not yet come to a resolution, which means actors and writers of projects such as Mortal Kombat 2 won’t be providing any updates for the time being. So, don’t expect any solid casting updates to come from the cast and crew until after the two strikes find a reasonable solution.
Mortal Kombat 2 does not yet have a confirmed release date.
