The Boys TV Series Actor Will Not Be Doing Voice-Overs For Homelander In Mortal Kombat 1
The Boy TV series actor has confirmed that he will not be doing voice-overs for the character of Homelander in Warner Bros Games and NetherRealm Studios’ fighting game, Mortal Kombat 1.
Antony Starr, the actor who plays the character of Homelander in The Boys TV series, confirmed on social media that he will not reprise his role of Homelander in Mortal Kombat 1. Homelander is set to arrive in the fighting game as part of the Kombat Pack 1 DLC.
A few weeks ago, the actor had expressed uncertainty regarding his reprisal of the role of Homelander. However, it seems that whatever talks went down between him and Warner Bros Games did not lead to the actor performing voice-overs for the character. This will certainly be a disappointment for Starr’s fans, who were looking forward to hearing his classic lines from the TV series. As of writing, it is unknown who will be doing voice-over duties for Homelander.
Recently, in its Q3 2023 earnings call transcript, Warner Bros Discovery Inc had shared that Mortal Kombat 1 sales had surpassed 3 million copies, and the company also revealed plans to further drive monetization through live service strategies. The publisher had stated that it is leading with multiple key franchises, each of which is a $1 billion gaming property, including Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, DC, which is mainly Batman today, and Mortal Kombat, whose most recent release, Mortal Kombat 1 had sold nearly 3 million copies since its launch in mid-September. Warner Bros claimed that it has the proven IP and franchises, the world class studios and publishing talent, and it intended to continue to invest more capital and more resources into the games business.
Mortal Kombat 1 is the twelfth main installment in the Mortal Kombat series, serving as both a sequel to Mortal Kombat 11 (2019) and the series’ second reboot, following Mortal Kombat (2011). The game was released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S on September 18, 2023, with the premium edition having been released on September 14.
