I would have gone with Kattheryn Winnick for sonya but I agree at least its not Ronda Rousey.The rest of the cast seems like its taking its shape nicely, though I have to admit I kind of really wanted Jax to be played by Terry Crews?

Katheryn Winnick is great. Katee Sackhoff would also be fantastic, as would Tricia Helfer, who was already a great Sonya and should still be voicing her in MK11. And Terry Crews seems like he was born to play Jax. He's huge and a pretty damn good actor. Mechad Brooks should be fine, I think. He was one of the better actors on that Supergirl show.

Not too keen on Jessica McNamee as Sonya, but at least they didn't cast Ronda Rousey, I guess.
