Todd McFarlane's iconic comic book character Spawn is a part of Mortal Kombat 11's Kombat Pack characters, and while leaks may have tipped fans off to Spawn being in the popular fighting game, the leak did not say who would be voicing the popular superhero. While Spawn's release date may be a ways off, today it was revealed who would be bringing this iconic hero to life in the Kombat Pack. Popular voice actor Keith David will be lending his voice to Spawn when he launches in March.
The announcement comes from Keith David's official Twitter, where he confirmed that he would be voicing Spawn in Mortal Kombat 11 when he launches March 17. David actually voiced Spawn in the animated series back in 1997, so in a way, he is reprising his role but this time for Mortal Kombat. David has also appeared in many game franchises including Halo, Saints Row, Mass Effect, and many more, so David is a veteran to the industry for sure.
Spawn is the last of the Kombat Pack 1 fighters to be released, so fans have a while to wait before hearing David again as Spawn. While it is great that Spawn will be voiced by a returning actor, many fans are disappointed that the Arnold Schwarzenegger is not voicing Terminator in Mortal Kombat 11. Following Nightwolf, Terminator will be joining the game next in October, then followed by Sindel in November, Joker in January, and Spawn wrapping up the Kombat Pack in March. Overall, Kombat Pack 1 has left a lot to be desired for some fans, but so far, at least Spawn is giving fans something to look forward to.
While many fans are disappointed with the Kombat Pack's release dates, some of the characters look interesting to say the least. Terminator, Joker, and Spawn are big characters to get for the franchise, so fans should at least be somewhat excited by that.
The Kombat Pack 2 characters have already been revealed, if an old leak is to be believed, so if fans aren't happy with the first pack then they may have something to look forward to with the second pack. Regardless, owners of Kombat Pack 1 will have plenty of new fighters to hold them over until then, even if it means waiting a bit longer for characters like Spawn and Joker.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version in development.
