Is Antony Starr voicing Homelander in MK1?

We currently don’t know if Antony Starr from The Boys will voice Homelander in Mortal Kombat 1. Since he voiced his character in Modern Warfare 2, I wouldn’t be surprised if the voice actor covered this role in MK1. We will update this page when we get more details.

That covers all the Mortal Kombat 1 voice actors and cast we know of so far. We’ll update this list when NetherRealm reveals more information. Fans can expect even more Fighter and Kameo Fighters voice actor reveals before the game is out. Mortal Kombat 1 launches on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

Until then, check out the Mortal Kombat 1 pre-order guide for all the editions on offer. Some of them offer bonus characters like Shang Tsung and in-game currency like Dragon Krystals.
