Leaked voice files may potentially reveal the voice actor playing Black Panther in upcoming DLC for the Marvel’s Avengers video game.
While Marvel’s Avengers has failed to catch on like Square Enix thought it would, the developers at Crystal Dynamics are hoping to breathe new life into the game through its post-launch expansions. The first Marvel’s Avengers DLC is set to launch this week in the form of Operation: Kate Bishop – Taking A.I.M., while more heroes are planned for release throughout 2021. One such DLC hero is Black Panther, and while details have been scarce, the character’s voice actor may have leaked online.
Twitter user Miller has posted leaked Marvel’s Avengers audio files online that are seemingly for Black Panther. While the Black Panther voice actor for Marvel’s Avengers hasn’t been confirmed in an official capacity at the time of this writing, fans believe that the voice sounds like Christopher Judge. Judge, for those who may not know, is the voice actor for Kratos in the 2018 God of War game. Judge also reprised the role of Kratos for the character’s recent appearance in Fortnite.
Judge has decades of acting experience, and his video game work speaks for itself. While his best-known video game role is definitely God of War‘s Kratos, Judge has also voiced characters in various other games over the years, including the massively popular MMORPG World of Warcraft.
The Marvel’s Avengers Black Panther DLC is still being kept quiet for the most part, outside of brief teases. Right now the focus is on the Kate Bishop DLC coming on December 8, which will be one of the game’s first real post-launch tests. Square Enix has taken huge losses on Marvel’s Avengers so far, so it will definitely be interesting to see if the Kate Bishop DLC is able to bring back some lapsed players or convince new people to pick up the game.
After the Kate Bishop DLC, fans can expect the Marvel’s Avengers Hawkeye DLC to land at some point in 2021. Black Panther will likely come at some point after that, and eventually, Spider-Man DLC will be added to the game as well. However, it should be noted that the Spider-Man DLC is exclusive to Marvel’s Avengers players on PlayStation platforms.
Besides new characters, 2021 will also see the launch of the Marvel’s Avengers next-gen version. If the upgrades are significant enough, perhaps the Marvel’s Avengers next-gen release could be what gives the game the shot in the arm it needs. Combined with the new character releases, Marvel’s Avengers fans should have a lot to look forward to next year.
Marvel’s Avengers is out now for PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One, with PS5 and Xbox Series X versions also in development.
