Look, I love Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. The Dark Knight Rises was probably my favorite movie of 2012, but Nolan’s “realistic” take on Batman meant that the fights couldn’t be as ridiculous as they sometimes are in the comics. That’s where WB Games and NetherRealm’s new fighter – Injustice: Gods Among Us – comes in.
WB Games have released two new “trailers” for Injustice today that shows a full fight between some of DC’s best. The first is a matchup between Batman and Bane, and the results are glorious. I don’t want to spoil too much, but let’s just say that the Watchtower is going to need some major repair after all of this.
Next up is a matchup between Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn. This one is a lot more interesting, mostly due to Quinn’s arsenal of guns and toys. The real highlight of this match, however, is when Quinn is knocked into a separate room of Arkham, and accidentally bumps into one of the prison’s more violent inmates.
These first two fights are part of a larger series of trailers called “Battle Arena” that will presumably be showing off fights between all the characters thus far confirmed for Injustice. I really hope one of these fights will match up Deathstroke and Cyborg.
Injustice: Gods Among Us launches on April 16 for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
