"Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" is yet to be a blockbuster hit or a box office flop, but most of the cast have expressed their willingness to return for a sequel. In an interview asking about whether or not they will come back for a second movie, stars from Kristin Kreuk to Black Eyed Peas' Taboo were quick to give thumbs up for the sequel.

"I totally would love to go in there and work on some more skills," Kreuk, the actress who plays Chun-Li said of possible sequel. "I loved training; it was so much fun." Showing similar interest, Balrog's depicter Michael Clarke Duncan went straight saying, "Absolutely," adding that people want to see the same actor for a sequel. "Because once you see a movie with these characters, you don' t want to see any other actors but them playing those characters. It's kinda hard to switch it up and say 'Now it's gonna be this guy.'"

While Taboo, who takes on razor-clawed assassin Vega, straightforwardly stated, "Hands down yes", Neal McDonough revealed the reason why he is willing to reprise his role if possible, "To work with these folks again, and Andre directed a great film. To work with Andrzej and these guys again? Absolutely."

Chris Klein, in addition, gushed, "There's no question about it." The actor who portrays Charlie Nash in the live-action adaptation further explained, "To be involved in a franchise that has such depth - and such a wonderful fan base - is such a wonderful opportunity that comes around very, very infrequently. To have an opportunity to be a part of something like that is incredible."

Based on popular Japanese video game from Capcom, "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" centers on martial artist Chun-Li as she falls in the quest of finding justice after she found out that her father is murdered. Penned by "Voltron" scribbler Justin Marks, the film is directed by "Romeo Must Die" helmer Andrzej Bartkowiak. Shot in Bangkok, Hong Kong and Vancouver, the 20th Century Fox film will be heading into U.S. theaters on February 27.

I read on Wiki that Ryu trains in Karate and a touch of Judo. So why get a Chinese actor who does Kung Fu, a chinese martial art. Ryu is Japanese, you can see the guy does Kung Fu in his other films. Do some talent spotting producers! Get someone who looks like Ryu too!

My new Cast Main characters • Ryu- Jon Foo • Ken- Cam Gigandnet • Sagat- • Adon- Tony Jaa or Chatthapong Pantaunkul • Gen- Robin Shou • Goutetsu- Sonny Chiba or Ken Watanabe • Akuma- Sho Kosugi • Gouken- Kurata Yasuaki • Young Akuma- Byung-hun Lee • Young Gouken- Rick Yun • Retsu(a frined of Gouken’s)- As Characters that are just participating in the Tournament and nothing else to do with the story. • Zangief – Nathan B. Jones • Dee-Jay – Rashad Evans or Lateef Crowder Yes, Yes I know that Zangief and Dee Jay were not in the Street Fighter Tournament in the original game but the fans deserve to see characters that they recognize and love even though they have very little to do with Ryu’s story.

These are some good titles I came up with. You shouldn’t put Ryu and Ken’s name in the same title together, even though Ryu and Ken both are rivals and best friends and are two iconic characters, the story is mostly about Ryu and his origin and the power of the Dark Hadou/Satsui no Hadou which also known as the Killing Intent. • Street Fighter: The Path of Ryu • Street Fighter: The Birth of Ryu • Street Fighter: The Chronicles of Ryu • Street Fighter: The Path of a True Martial Artist • Street Fighter: The Warrior’s Path • Street Fighter: Internal Conflict • Street Fighter: Path of the Martial Artist

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li took place before the events of the original Street Fighter game. The next movie is going to take place during the original game that stared Ryu, Ken(if you were second player), Sagat, Gen, Adon, and Retsu. There were six other characters that were in the game but were not that important. This movie should tell the origin of Ryu. Like I said before on my other comments was that in the beginning of the movie the first 20 minutes should show the events that happened before Ryu’s time. What I mean by that is that it should show Akuma and Gouken being trained together by their master Goutetsu in the art of Shotokan and showing the origin of the Satui no Hadou/Dark Hadou a.k.a. the Killing Intent. This is important because Ryu’s origins lie in the history of Akuma and Gouken. Gouken knowing that the Satsui no Hadou is evil he rejects it and leaves his master, but Akuma decides to embrace the Satsui no Hadou and masters it. Gouken and Akuma are brothers and are adversaries. Akuma kills his Master Goutetsu with the power of the Satsui no Hadou. Years later Gouken adopts Ryu and also trains Ken that was brought from America by his father to learn discipline and respect. Ryu and Ken grew up together training under Gouken and eventually becoming rivals and best friends. Gouken was a father to Ryu and had great times with him. Years Later after that Ryu and Ken were grown and left Gouken’s Dojo. Akuma encountered Gouken and fought. Gouken was defeated and was presumed dead. Ryu went off to fight in the Street Fighter Tournament a.k.a. the first World Warrior Tournament, which took place on the original game. Ryu, Gen, Sagat, Gen, Adon, and Retsu fought in this Tournament. Ken instead fought in the United States Martial Arts Tournament and won, but Ken should be added in the Street Fighter Tournament on the new movie because who wants to see a Street Fighter movie with Ryu but without Ken? Gen looked for strong fighters, Ryu seeked the path of a true martial artist and what it means to be a true martial artist(on the game he seeks the path of a true fighter and what it means to be a true fighter but the path of a true martial artist sounds a lot better). Retsu was a friend of Goukens. Sagat wanted to prove the world that he was the greatest fighter there is, Adon was a student of Sagat and was tired of being in Sagat’s shadow. Ryu defeats Sagat in the finals by using the Satui no Hadou but does not kill him. Ryu returns to Japan and finds out that his Master Gouken was presumed dead and he knew that it had to be someone that trained in the same style he did. The movie should show flashbacks of Ryu and Ken training together as boys and should show Gouken telling Ryu as a boy to not embrace the Satsui no Hadou at any cost. Ryu wanders if becoming a true martial artist means embracing the Satsui no Hadou. Ryu was born with the Satsui no Hadou within himself. Bison should show an appearance after the end of the final fight between Ryu and Sagat and offering Ryu a spot in Shadowloo but Ryu rejects and walks away from Bison. The events that take place with Akuma, Goutetsu, and Gouken in the beginning should take place in Japan. The events and flashbacks with Ryu and Ken training as boys should also take place in Japan. The Street Fighter Tournament should take place in Japan. Pretty much the whole movie should take place in Japan. Ryu, ken, Gouken, Akuma, and Goutetsu- Shotokan karate Sagat, Adon- Muay Thai Gen- Kung-Fu Yuen Woo Ping and Panna Rittikrai both should be the Martial Arts Choreographers for this movie.

This was the best Street fighter movie yet and if they do a part II they should invest more time in the story. Doubt that they would invest in it but we will see.
