NetherRealm Studios are reportedly considering Homelander from The Boys to be featured as a playable character in this year’s Mortal Kombat game, the twelfth official instalment in the franchise, with various reports stating that the new addition will be a reboot to the entire series.
Recent reports also suggest that the next chapter in the series will only be available to play on next-generation consoles, which seems to be the current move for a lot of game studios, simply due to the technology limits between the two generations of console hardware.
