Having Spawn as a DLC fighter in Mortal Kombat 11 already checks one box for so many fans since the character was a common request for a guest appearance, but those who are very familiar with HBO’s animated Spawn series are getting something even better than this. The voice actor who played the character in the TV series,Spawn, Keith David, is reprising his role as Spawn for the fighter’s inclusion in Mortal Kombat 11. The Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment confirmed the details about the character by sharing fighter descriptions for each of the Kombat Pack characters that have been revealed so far in Mortal Kombat 11.
Warner Bros. shared fighter descriptions
The Mortal Kombat 11 DLC trailer above was the first reveal of who all characters will be in the Kombat Pack and featured Shang Tsung, a character who players already knew would be headlining in the DLC. Aside from Shang Tsung, Spawn, Sindel, and Nightwolf were announced along with two other unknown characters.
“Todd McFarlane’s Spawn is one of the world’s best-selling and also longest-running monthly comic books, with hundreds of millions of copies sold worldwide in more than 120 countries and in 15 different languages,” WBIE said about the new fighter release.
Synopsis Spawn Comic
“The Spawn comic book tells the story of Al Simmons, an elite government assassin who was betrayed and killed by the CIA. Instead of being killed and dying, he sells his soul to Hell for a second chance at life, and becomes Spawn, an unstoppable soldier fighting the underworld. The Spawn is voiced by Keith David, the original voice actor from Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, the Emmy award-winning HBO animated series.”
Spawn is the only one of the confirmed DLC characters so far who’s making a guest appearance in the game and is not a main fighter who’s capable of returning. If previous leaks are any indication of what’s to come, Bruce Campbell’s the Ash Williams, Terminator, and the Joker are among the possibilities for the next two fighters. Campbell has been rather cryptic about the whole idea of Ash being in the Mortal Kombat 11 by first refuting rumors and later teasing the fans again in a way that made them second guess his earlier statements. It certainly sounds like there’s a chainsaw reviving up in the final moments of the above trailer when it says there are even two more fighters on the way, so it once again looks like we’ll be seeing Ash in the game in some way.
