Todd McFarlane Agrees To Spawn Guest Fighter in MKX

He's battled his way through demons, cyborgs and Namco's Soulcalibur II. Could the comic book anti-hero Spawn be eyeing up the warriors of Mortal Kombat X next? Creator Todd McFarlane says it's an open possibility in a Toy Fair interview with GamerFitNation.


'We've actually had a short deal with them, so they may put [Spawn] in there..."

The multimedia savvy toymaker and part-time comics artist threw Spawn's spikey gauntlet into the ring this time last year. Where an Injustice guest spot seemed unlikely, this time McFarlane says an outstanding agreement with Warner Bros. is already in place:

"That means that they have access to be able to use the character in a couple of their games if they want to. Again, it's up to their discretion. So, uh... I gave them a window of time. And, so, I'll just leave it to them to be able to do what it is that they want. So, eventually they'll phone me and say 'Hey. We want to use him here. Is that okay?' Well, technically it's okay because we've already said yes."

The Spawn creator also explains he's looking for ways to relaunch the character before expanding back into video games and other merchandising. Based on the interview, no call has been made by WB or MKX with just two months to go, but with an alleged open licensing agreement and 2 guest characters confirmed for post-game DLC, it may also be unnecessary.

Spawns possible chances increased? Todd McFarlane says WB has the rights to the character

So Todd McFarlane confirms that he's given WB the go to let them use Spawn.

Considering how he wanted Spawn in Injustice, I think Spawn's got a good chance, which makes me happy.

I wouldn't mind seeing Spawn in, and I guess if WB has rights to him his chances are higher.

Sound like legitimate arguments to me. I like the old movie, the clown would be a pretty cool character too. I never read the comics so he's not my first choice.

I would love this, but they need to get the original voice actor for him from the animated series

I actually want to see Spawn in MKX. If he gets to be in, my boyfriend can finally play MK with me since he loves Spawn.

He's my personal favorite pick for a guest character. This is good news to me.

Every character in MK is a comic book character. Have you not been reading the comics?

He is an iconic character, but I'm still waiting for Mad Max.

It'd be ironic if Michael Jai White voiced him

QUICK! FIND KEITH DAVID AND IMMEDIATELY HIRE HIM AS THE VOICE

SPAWN VS SCORPION IN A VENGEANCE OFF AT THE CROSSROADS

SOMEBODY GET KEITH DAVID ON THA PHOOOOOOOOONE

*ahem*

I mean yeah Spawn would be a good choice for a Guest fighter. He's so 90's he fits right in with Scorpion and Quan-Chi.

I can't believe Spawn has haters! He is ultra mega ultimate kool and he is the final nail needed for the best MK game ever existed!

I really think you might be onto something here. Spawn's cape is a huge facet of the character, and it's red fabric, not unlike velvet.

Spawn would fit perfectly in MKX, id be fine with him as a guest character(if we have to have one, which we do)

Better than Jason or Mad Max
