“I imagine he is on his approach…”
Todd McFarlane, co-creator of Venom and author of Spawn, believes that Spawn can be a part of the impending Mortal Kombat 11.
During a reddit AMA, McFarlane was asked “Will you please let Spawn be in Mortal Kombat 11?”
He responded, simply, “I believe he’s on his way…”
Mortal Kombat 11, by NetherRealm Studios, was officially announced at The Game Awards for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
While such characters as Alien, Kratos, Predator, Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, and Freddy Krueger have appeared in Mortal Kombat titles, Spawn still has yet to join the fight.
Back in 2015, McFarlane revealed that a deal was being worked out with Warner Bros. to allow the use of the Spawn character in Mortal Kombat X. While that never happened, it appears fans of the anti-hero may now finally get their wish.
Spawn, who placed #36 on our list of top 100 comic book heroes, first appeared in comics in 1992 and was once known as Albert Simmons, a US Marine who was murdered by his best friend and arrives in Hell.
He makes a deal with Malebolgia that allows him to see his wife once again, for the small price of his soul.
Mortal Kombat 11 will be released for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 23, 2019, and you can check our preorder guide to prepare for its release and get the right version for you.
