While Warner Bros. didn’t quite see it his way, they did fund what eventually became known as the first season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy. The highly successful web series blends the supernatural with a realistic re-imagining of the Mortal Kombat franchise. And we’ve got the first look at season two!
The second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy started filming back in December and nobody has seen a thing, but thanks to Ian Anthony Dale, who plays Scorpion in both Legacy and Rebirth, we have our first look at the cast in full costume. Check out all your nerd dreams coming true after the jump.

Why hasn’t there been a Baywatch/Twilight/Monster Hunter televison show?
Now we have our answer – Malibu Days: Nights stars Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers) as a lifeguard by day and a monster killing detective by night.
What the hell else could a NerdBastard want? Slow motion bathing suit running scenes on the beach turning into smoke filled nights running down sparkling vampires. Really could there be more smoke or fog in this?
