In mid November, Reddit users in the Overwatch Subreddit made a post stating their desires to have Terry Crews do the voice acting for the mysterious Doomfist character in Blizzards Overwatch. This post garnered quite a bit of positive feedback and comments, to the point where it gained the attention of Terry Crews himself, who commented with his official Reddit account and stated “I would LOVE TO PLAY DOOMFIST” This comment sent fans into a frenzy, coming up with ideas for lines the character could use, as well as speculation about how to make this idea happen. Fast forward 1 month and Crews took to Twitter today to share the following post.
The Twitter post and the Instagram post that the tweet linked to had some very specific wording which is worth noting. First he states “Meeting and talking to blizzard_inc…” which leaves the statement open to interpretation about what exactly was being discussed between the actor and Overwatch team. And when looking at the Instagram post Crews stated “…such an amazing game has me CHARGED UP! Lets go!” Could this emphasis on “CHARGED UP” be a reference to the character who fans have suggested he play as? While little is known about the Doomfist character, one thing we can look at for a bit of information is his weapon, the Doomfist Gauntlet. The Gauntlet which is said to be able to level a skyscraper has quite a bit of power as seen in the Overwatch Cinematic Reveal Trailer when a teenage boy picks it up and uses it to defend himself against Widowmaker. When the gauntlet struck the assassin, it released a large blast of energy, this much energy would very likely require a charge time before being used again. This could be an what Crews is alluring too with his statement.
At this point, this is all speculation, but we would love to hear a bit about what you think gamers. Do you think Terry Crews could portray Doomfist as Overwatch’s next playable character?
