“If it was up to me? No. Mortal Kombat is awesome in so many ways, but I think… um you know, Neo, John Wick, yeah man they’re doing their own thing. Mortal Kombat‘s doing their own thing,” Reeves said.
It is worth noting that The Matrix is opened by Warner Bros., who also own Mortal Kombat, so that crossover could very much happen, whilst John Wick is a lot less likely.
This is where Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon comes in, as he playfully responded to the situation on Twitter (on November 24) saying “I don’t want to see an MK character appear in a John Wick or Matrix movie. As cool as those movies are, I just don’t think they are a good fit.”
In an interview from 2016, Boon told Game Informer that suggestions from Warner Bros. for Mortal Kombat 9 guest characters came up. “I remember they brought up Neo,” said Boon at the time. “So there were a whole bunch of ones that for business reasons or that creatively we didn’t think they’d fit.”

Boon added that horror characters seemed to be the ones “to lend themselves to it”.
