Homelander’s coming to MK1 in the future, but his actor will not, as Antony Starr has grown increasingly tired of questions about his involvement in the fighting game. Instead, Starr’s telling everyone to play CoD.

Mortal Kombat 1 marked a significant shift for the franchise, as the fighting game went back in time to revise its brutal story. It left a flawless mark on its arrival, with rave reviews across the board.

Given his answer, you can tell he gets asked this question a lot. Fans were quick to point that out, as well as “He’s Homelander in real life,” one reply stated, since Starr always seems in character, no matter the scenario.

Homelander is supposed to arrive sometime in Spring 2024, as a part of MK1’s Kombat Pack 1. Given there’s still plenty of time until then, there may be a chance Starr is denying his involvement for fun.
