According to an interview conducted by gamerfitnation.com, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has confirmed that he gave Mortal Kombat X developers NetherRealm Studios the go-ahead to use his demonic superhero in their upcoming game. This does not confirm that Al Simmons will appear in the next-gen brawler but only indicates that NetherRealm could use the character if they wish to.
If true, then this would not be the first time that Spawn has appeared as a guest character in a fighting game. From back in the distant past of the early 2000s, Spawn also appeared in the Xbox version of Soul Calibur 2 as part of a scheme that saw a single unique character appearing exclusively in each of the three console versions of the game. Mortal Kombat is no stranger to guest characters either, as the last iteration of the popular series featured horror genre icon Freddy Krueger. Whether or not this precedent for crossovers means that Spawn will step into the ring with such notables as Raiden or Sub-Zero is still up in the air.
There is also a rumor that Predator will be in the mix as well. Agent Dillon (the character played by Carl Weathers in the original Predator flick) will also make an appearance as well if scuttlebutt is to be believed. The tenth installment in the Mortal Kombat series will launch on April 14, 2015.
