The Joker is in the unique position of being the subject of the most nominated film at the 2020 Academy Awards and the next DLC fighter in Mortal Kombat 11. His arrival was rumored long before his announcement, of course, but now we have finally been able to see his set of movements and one of his deaths.
However, the Clown Crime Prince is no stranger to the Netherrealm, as he appeared in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe in 2008 and remains a popular fighter in the Injustice games. This means that their playing style and movements are not a big surprise for the players, although there are some modifications here.
However, one thing that will tickle for a long time Mortal Kombat Fans is the fatality we see in the trailer. This mocks the "Friendships" introduced in Mortal Kombat II back in 1993. Here, Joker gives his involuntary opponent a gift, with the familiar cheesy sign of "FRIENDSHIP" that appears behind him. But, as expected, this is a cruel ruse and the villain proceeds to violently kill anyone who has the bad luck of facing him. By the time he finishes, his victim is riddled with bullets and the "FRIENDSHIP" sign is revealed as "FATALITY".

Joker is one of the final members of Kombat Pack 1, which has already launched Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, the T-800 and Sindel, and will complete its list with Spawn on March 17. But what about Kombat Pack 2? Well, although it probably won't be announced until Spawn comes out, we already have a pretty good idea of at least some of the characters it contains.
Last year's data miners found references to inherited fighters Sheeva and Fujin in the game's data, as well as "Ash." Most assume it will be Ash Williams of Evil Dead fame, with Bruce Campbell returning from his retirement to make the voice. That leaves two mysterious next characters, with popular fan choices that are Judge Dredd and Doomed Doomguy Or maybe they will finally give in and satisfy fans by putting Shaggy in Mortal Kombat 11? We live in hope
