The Star Wars legend you didn’t know was in Mortal Kombat

If you are a war of stars As a fan and lover of fighting games, you will probably be interested to know that one of the greatest lightsaber wielders mixed it up with the warriors of Mortal Kombat!

In 1999, dark threat introduced the world to Darth Maul, arguably one of the most badass characters ever war of stars Franchise. With his satanic visage, double-bladed lightsaber, and epic fighting style, Maul made one of the most impressive debuts in science fiction history.

In the first prequel film, Maul is portrayed by Scottish actor and martial artist Ray Park. But before he kicked Jedi Naboo’s ass, he threw up his hands as the Thunder God.

Ray Park had several roles in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

In 1997, New Line Cinema released the Citizen Kane of live-action adaptations – okay, I’ll stop. While Mortal Kombat: Annihilation was a massive idiot, it proved to be a real opportunity for young Ray Park. It was his first role in a film and he acted as a stunt double for Rayden, played by James Remar (via Turner classic). I mean, it was pretty obvious that Remar wasn’t doing those crazy flips when he fought those two ninjas in Outworld, but knowing it’s Ray Park is pretty crazy.

Accordingly IMDbPark also served as a stunt double for Robin Shou, who played Liu Kang; Additionally, the Scottish actor is also credited as the fearsome Baraka and “Raptor #3,” one of the ninjas Rayden fought. (This might explain that there are three of the reptilian attackers when they appear. But when they actually fight Rayden, there are only two; even the great Ray Park can’t do that kind of double duty!)

After Mortal Kombat And war of starsPark agreed X Men franchise as the scary and deadly toad and once again get the opportunity to put an end to our favorite heroes.
