Despite Konami and Kojima announcing that Big Boss would be played by 24 actor, Kiefer Sutherland, it seems that David Hayter may indeed reprise his role as David, aka Solid Snake.

Kiefer Sutherland is confirmed to voice snake so let's stop with all these rumors...

you act like there's only one snake.
There are 4 snakes in total, with two of the 4 originally voiced by David Hayter

this video is really good and kinda explains the whole hayter and sutherland situation:

basically, if you watch the ground zero trailer, that's naked snake i.e big boss - who is played by hayter. However at the end of ground zero is boss is injured and put in a coma.

in the phantom pain trailer, big boss wakes up and is greeted by 'Ishmael' - who is voiced by sutherland.

the video i posted suggests that the snake in the e3 MGSV trailer on the horse isn't big boss but a body double as he has green eyes and a horn and a different every patch whereas big boss has blue eyes and a different eye patch.

in conclusion hayter will voice bid boss in ground zeros, whilst Sutherland will voice a double in the phantom pain.

note* that metal gear v consists of both ground zeros and the phantom pain.

this video pretty much debunks that

Gray Fox had his eyes still during this time. No reason for him to have an eye patch even during this age, and the video does show him pulling out a pair of binocs. That video is just wrong overall


I don't think Punished Snake is Gray Fox, not at all, but also wouldn't rule the Big Boss doppleganger theory and Ishmael may indeed be the new Snake.

Sutherland's voice on Ishmael is really really weird if he's also Snake, and I don't buy the allucination theory for the hospital sequence, because the problem is not Ishmael's voice, but Big Boss's. Listen closely, it doesn't sound like Sutherland was voicing both at that moment at all, only Ishmael.

There's also the eye colors not matching but this and most stuff (eypatch, ponytail binoculars) could be simply work in progress or different design decisions, let's not read so much into it.

But what really grabbed my attention is the fact that this "Punished Snake" character is always being called "Snake" and never "Big Boss"... If you played Peace Walker you know that was the moment that defined Big Boss, that he completelly abandoned the Snake codename when turning his back on his past with US military and decided to live only by his mentor pure ideals (hence the name change), he even says he's doing so to take control of his future... It's just made too much of a big deal in Peace Walker for John to accept being called Snake again after.

And I don't see why it's so unlikelly to have an arm cut off in Metal Gear universe... Seriously, have the debunker ever played MG? They implant arms, rebuild your whole body from scraps, make you a cyborg and if you wait long enough for nanomachines you can't even die... Some will haunt you even after they trully died (Sorrow and Mantis anyone?). Also, if memory serves me right, Big Boss also has both arms in the MSX Metal Gear (which could as well be a plot hole, like losing the Eye to a shot from Ocelot in MGS3 when in MG1 it's stated to have happened from a granade blast in the late 80's).

Also the "what about him" moment, the debunker should know better than trust Kojima... "Oh that's me"... Yeah Kojima, that made sense, you are there in the game, not just the point of view, but actually you are being seen by Miller... Call me paranoid, but Kojima had trolled us so many times it's not even funny anymore... Well, actually it is.

But anyway, the point is we never really know what's goign on in Metal Gear 'till we get to play it and when something smells fishy on a Metal Gear game, more likely than not there's more to it. So I'm not ruling anything out.

ELI is Liquid.. DAVID is Solid. I believe both will be in the game. Eli under Big Boss. David under Kaz. Big Boss w/Eli turns bad, Kaz w/David turn good,

Gardenia1969d ago

This could all be a trick that Kojima is pulling on us. I can see David Hayter play Solid Snake in the future yes

Kiefer Sutherland will be playing Big Boss aka Punished Snake and David Hayter will be playing as his son Solid Snake. Also, this game is set 11 years before the original Metal Gear Solid :)

GdaTyler1969d ago (Edited 1969d ago )

If Solid Snake is in this game I will call bs if David Hayter doesn't voice him. David IS Solid Snake and was the first to voice him. They even have the same first names! :p

Honestly though, David Hayter is the best person to do Solid Snake. If anyone else does Solid Snake it would sound wrong. Fine they can change Big Boss' voice, but Solid Snake's? No.

In the event that they choose someone else, however, I will still play the game.

TheOneWhoIsTornApart1969d ago

When Resident Evil 6 was being announced it had James Earl Jones voicing Sherry Birkin lol so we should take this with a grain of salt although I would like if Hayter Played Solid while Keifer played Big Boss.

LightSamus1969d ago

I'd buy that, that could be the funniest thing ever.

mgszelda11969d ago

Anyone else find it odd that the guy in the redband trailer with the beret on does not speak.... !

TheOneWhoIsTornApart1969d ago

That guy was Kaz. Theres that seen where Ocelot is torturing Huey by throwing a bucket of water on his face and then you see Kaz wearing a Diamond Dogs beret. His sleeve was dangling since he is missing an arm and also you see his legs under the table and you can see that one of his legs is much skinnier than the other which to me indicates that he has a prosthetic. He looks at least ten years older than when Big Boss rescues him in Afghanistan.

Nitrowolf21969d ago

ah thanks for that, didn't noticed the first time.

Nitrowolf21969d ago

This guy?

That's Roy Campbell and I think he does speak at one point.

TheOneWhoIsTornApart1969d ago

Thats not Roy i promise you. Those sun glasses belong to Kaz those are his signature shades. Watch the extended trailer again and you will see in that exact part from the picture you posted.My first comment i explain why it's Kaz.

THamm1969d ago

Yeah someone pointed out the fake left leg and missing arm in sleeve. Its Kaz

ZombieKiller1963d ago

Has anyone else noticed Kaz is blind too? Thats not Campbell. Not at all. You can tell my his movements and the way he acts that he was stripped of his sight

I bet his want for revenge is what stems this whole thing. I bet its deeper than that, but I bet once you rescue Kaz. When Snake puts on his sunglasses you can really tell if you look closely at his eyes.
