Following the recent confirmation that Arnold Schwarzenegger will not be voicing his likeness as the Terminator in Mortal Kombat 11, fans started numerous petitions to ensure the authenticity of a second DLC character was not lost.
Putting fans at ease, esteemed voiceover actor Keith David took to his Twitter account today to make the announcement that he will be reprising his role of Spawn.
David voiced Spawn in the HBO series Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, which saw eighteen episodes released over three seasons from 1997 to 1999. The series was met with critical acclaim, winning two Emmys and two Golden Reel Awards in 1998 and 1999.
Albert “Al” Francis Simmons, better known as Spawn, is a comic superhero created by Todd McFarlane. First appearing in Spawn #1 in May of 1992, Simmons was a gifted US Marine Corps officer, moving up the ranks to the US Secret Service and eventually the CIA. Murdered during a mission in Botswana, he was sent to Hell where he made a deal with a being known as Malebolgia to become a hellspawn in exchange for seeing his wife Wanda Blake one last time.
Spawn will be the last of six kombatants announced as part of what we believe to be the first of two Kombat Packs in Mortal Kombat 11. He will be playable for Kombat Pack owners on March 17 2020, with general availability following a week later.
