Fans have taken to social media to voice their disapproval of the Joker design in Mortal Kombat 11, going as far to call out the Clown Prince of Crime’s look for being too similar to a porn parody.
Yesterday, NetherRealm Studios unveiled the full line-up of its first Kombat Pack for Mortal Kombat 11. While the roster included several iconic characters such as Spawn and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 from Terminator, it was Mortal Kombat 11‘s incarnation of the Joker that seems to be creating a sensation on social media.
Unfortunately, the reactions to the Joker design for Mortal Kombat 11 have been less-than-positive as many have taken to Twitter to slam the character’s new look, with one fan even comparing this incarnation of the villain to a porn parody version from a video called Katwoman XXX. Nevertheless, Mortal Kombat 11 director Ed Boon assured fans this version of the Joker will be “vicious” on his official Twitter account.

Warner Bros. and DC Films have many projects currently being developed including The Batman, The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Supergirl, New Gods, and Nightwing.
The DCEU continues this month with Aquaman which is now playing and will be followed by Shazam! on April 5, 2019, Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
