Spawn is coming to Mortal Kombat 11 on 8th March, 2020.
Famed comic book artist Todd McFarlane - who was also a writer and artist on the Spawn series - may have had a hand in Spawn's design, as he announced the roster addition by way of unveiling an all-new seven-inch scale figure.
"MORTAL KOMBAT SPAWN REVEAL!! FINALLY I CAN SHOW IT!!" tweeted a very excited Todd McFarlane (thanks, VG24/7). "Spawn Mortal Kombat action figure is an incredibly detailed (true McFarlane Toys fashion) 7-inch scale figure designed with 22 points of ultra-articulation and can achieve full range posing. COMING MARCH 2020!"

In response, the official Mortal Kombat Twitter account said: "Amazing figure? Absolutely! Kombat proven? We'll see on 3/8, Todd McFarlane..."
The Joker is the most recent character added to the roster in Mortal Kombat 11, but due to the character already being available to fight in-game and through the magic of early access granted to YouTubers, there was a lot about the way the DC supervillain works already available before his release.
