No Ken or Ryu in the Street Fighter movie


Though they're probably not your favorite characters in the Street Fighterverse (that's Zangief, obviously) you probably can't imagine it without the Shake 'n' Bake of urban fisticuffs, Ken and Ryu. So it'll probably come as something of a surprise that Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li producer Patrick Aiello says that the duo won't appear in the movie.

Official movie blogger Aaron Horwitz attempts do a little damage control, reminding that "Nightcrawler, Pyro and Beast" didn't show up in the first X-Men movie. It's an appropriate comparison as Nightcrawler, Pyro and Beast were the original team of X-Men. Just the three of them ... bamf-ing around, starting fires and being smart. Those we are the X-Men they had back in the 60s and they liked it.
