The long-awaited new trailer for Injustice 2 just came out on the official Injustice 2 Twitter page and social media is buzzing. There’s been rumors swirling around multiple DC Comic characters joining the roster after announcing new characters like Supergirl, Gorilla Grodd, Blue Beetle, and Deadshot last year. In the newest Injustice 2 trailer, it focuses on the main characters of the story: Superman, Batman, and Supergirl.
The story the trailer taps into the blurry lines between good and evil. Specifically, how one thing can change everything. For superman, that moment is losing Lois and his unborn child. For Supergirl, it’s watching her home, Krypton, be destroyed. Then, there’s Batman, whose story is a little unclear. But from the looks of the trailer, he seems to be like the big brother of Gotham City. The story is told with a very dark tone, which is very reminiscent of the Batman v. Superman movie. And that makes sense given that Batman’s resistance rages on in “Year 2” of the Injustice comic series. As great as that is, we see Brainiac as the big bad of the story at the end of the trailer.
The visual effects in the trailer is seemingly simple but effective. The game introduces a multitude of new characters which includes Blue Beetle, Supergirl, Poison Ivy, Brainiac, Gorilla Grodd, Atrocitus, Dark Seid (if you pre-order the game), as well as others I may not have noticed. There also may be ones that haven’t been revealed as of now.
Injustice 2 officially comes out on May 16th, 2017.
