Half the fun of fighting game reveals is the inevitable months-long conversation about which characters will make the roster. We’re going through that right now with Mortal Kombat 11but at an expedited pace because it releases relatively soon, at the tail end of April 2019. In fact, MK11just got a new info dump this morning.
Here’s a fun possibility: Spawn could very well be summoned to join the ranks of Mortal Kombat 11‘s Fatality Dealers. In a reddit AMA, Spawncreator Todd McFarlane answered a question about his comic antihero coming to MK11by saying “I believe he’s on his way…” That could be a soft confirmation or it could be a tongue-in-cheek way of stringing along his fans.
Spawn has some history with Mortal Kombat. McFarlane gave Warner Bros. permission to use Spawn as a DLC character in Mortal Kombat Xbut nothing ever came of it. However, it should be noted that Spawn isn’t likely to make the base roster if he ends up making the game. Mortal Kombat 11will probably keep that restricted to MKmainstays. It’s the DLC Kombat Packs where we get wild crossovers like Alien‘s Xenomorph and Leatherface.
