Todd McFarlane Teases Spawn for Mortal Kombat 11

Todd McFarlane Teases Spawn for Mortal Kombat 11

A pretty fitting guest character.

Todd McFarlane's comic book creation, Spawn, could be coming to NetherRealm Studios' upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 if his recent Reddit AMA is to be believed.

McFarlane is currently developing a new film adaptation of his famous comic book character, but during a recent Reddit AMA one fan asked the comic book creator to please let the famous comic book antihero guest in the upcoming Mortal Kombat. McFarlane's response? "I believe he's on his way..."

Previous guest characters in Mortal Kombat include horror movie icons like Jason Voorhees, a Xenomorph, and Leatherface so seeing Spawn in a Mortal Kombat game certainly won't feel out-of-place. And considering the violence in the Mortal Kombat franchise, Spawn will certainly be able to let all hell loose.

Of course, McFarlane's response isn't an official confirmation, but considering Mortal Kombat 11 isn't even out yet there's a lot of opportunities for Spawn to make an appearance once the post-launch DLC starts rolling out.

Mortal Kombat 11 was one of the surprise announcements at this year's Game Awards, though fans were anticipating the next Mortal Kombat game for some time.
