Tweets Of The Week

Movement on Mortal Kombat, two wannabe Timelords and the man who would be Catwoman in this week’s tweets

There’s only one news story dominating Twitter this week, and that’s Charlie Sheen’s uncomfortably public meltdown. So imagine how excited we got when Sheen revealed, live on American TV, that he had “Tigerblood”, the son of President Bartlet a superhuman animal hybrid?

So in lieu of genuine sci-fi related Sheen news – a public service announcement for fans of Kevin Tancharoen’s (bro of Dollhouse writer Maurissa Tancharoen) gritty Mortal Kombat short from a little while back. He’s currently shooting the multi-part live action web series spinning off from the short, Mortal Kombat: Rebirth , and is keeping fans updated by posting pictures from his Twitter account, including first looks at many characters. The first episode will be available until sometime in the spring but for now, fatality fans, you’ll have to make do with this:
