Injustice: Gods Among Us, the DC fighter coming from the Mortal Kombat team, is still shrouded in relative secrecy. We don’t know exactly why all these heroes and villains are fighting against each other. Director Ed Boon has dropped a few hints here and there, but it’s mostly still a mystery. A new cinematic trailer doesn’t help matters much.
The latest trailer for Injustice features notable characters from the DC Universe presumably talking about the events that led up to the game. In particular, Superman laments that he couldn’t save everyone this time. It seems that Lex Luthor is also using the events of the game to rid the world of Superman once and for all.
Beyond the aforementioned characters, we get another good look at The Flash, Wonder Woman, Batman and The Joker. Other confirmed characters for the title that don’t show up in the trailer include Bane, Catwoman, Cyborg, Deathstroke, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Harley Quinn, Nightwing and Solomon Grundy. It’s going to be interesting to see how the writers at DC and NetherRealm Studios bring all these iconic characters together under one title. This latest trailer suggests that the story will at least be flashy and well narrated, even if it makes no sense in the end.
Injustice: Gods Among Us will launch on the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U on April 16.
