'Mortal Kombat' Star Sisi Stringer Is Set to Reveal Mileena's Ferocity
Sisi Stringer is an up-and-coming Hollywood actress. With her third movie, Stringer is poised to unveil her true potential as the ferocious and psychotic Mileena in the upcoming Mortal Kombat.
Stringer’s Role in Mortal Combat
The trailer for one of the highly anticipated movies of 2021, Mortal Kombat, was released on February 18, 2021. Stringer, who plays the role of the hybrid Tarkatan — Mileena, the evil clone of Kitana, was featured in the trailer.
The character is iconic; with her inhumane jaw with sharp teeth, she hides behind her purple silk mask.
With her cannibalistic tendencies and a jaw that can unhinge to consume her opponents and spit up their bones, Mileena is a ferocious warrior to be reckoned with.
In the trailer, we see a glimpse of the actress portraying Mileena licking blood from her 'kunai' — without her signature teeth and distinct purple outfit.
Fans React To Mileena
Fans were excited to receive the trailer finally. However, some of them had some apprehensions about the appearance of Stringer as Mileena.
Fans were quick to notice her missing her iconic teeth as well clothes from the video game. Many fans pointed out this flawed detail in the trailer.
One fan took to Twitter to pour their frustration. @EduardoCime5 tweeted that even though the bloodshed and fight scenes in the trailer are up to par, Mileena’s redesign was disappointing.

Another fan, @KittyCat_Cammy had the same complaint — saying they miss her actual creepy mouth and her iconic purple costume which seems to be darker in the trailer.
Just saw the mortal kombat trailer it's actually awesome but my only complaint is shouldn't Mileena mouth be more creeper & wear more black n purple. pic.twitter.com/rzHxJRsV4O — ðŸ¾ã‚²ãƒ¼ãƒžãƒ¼ã‚ªãƒ–ãƒ©ã‚¤ãƒ•ðŸ¾ (@KittyCat_Cammy) February 18, 2021
Todd Garner, one of the producers of the movie, responded to the negative reactions with a tweet, reassuring the fans that there will be more to Mileena than meets the eye.
