Mortal Kombat 11’s Terminator Isn’t Voiced by Arnold Schwarzenegger

NetherRealm has confirmed that Arnold Schwarzenegger won’t be voicing the character in Mortal Kombat 11.

When NetherRealm revealed Mortal Kombat 11’s upcoming Kombat Pack, it was revealed that both the Terminator and Spawn would be added to the popular fighting game. This left many fans wondering whether or not the studio would get the actors who original portrayed these characters to lend their voices to them.

Well, fans of the Terminator films may be disappointed to learn that long-time Terminator actor Arnold Schwarzenegger will not be voicing the fighter in Mortal Kombat 11, while fans of Spawn may be happy to learn that Keith David will be reprising his role as the character. Even though the Terminator character is shaped after the likeness of Arnold Schwarzenegger, he won’t be voicing the character. Many thought that he would when series creator Ed Boon tweeted that they got Arnold, which probably meant that the studio acquired the rights to use his likeness. 

Keith David who will be reprising his role as Spawn voiced the character in the animated HBO series in the late 90s, making him the perfect casting for nostalgia. He confirmed on Twitter that he will be voicing the character. Fans will have to wait a while before they hear David reprise the role as Spawn will be the last character added to the game.

Spawn creator, Todd McFarlane, commented on the character addition saying that Spawn in Mortal Kombat is looking good. “I haven’t seen them all fully polished, but what I did see was pretty awesome.”

Although some fans aren’t happy with Mortal Kombat 11‘s DLC featuring mainly guest characters, there is no doubt that many are excited about the upcoming additions. Fans can expect to play as the Terminator on 8 October and as Spawn in March 2020.
