A few days ago we wrote a news piece on Ed Boon tweeting out Injustice 2’s release date. In it we mentioned how there’s been a surprising lack of content for the Gods Among Us sequel. Well, it appears NetherRealm has heard the internet and dropped a complete story trailer for us today. This time Batman and his allies are working to build society back up again after the alternate dimension’s Superman created a fascist regime. However, in doing so Batman may have gone too far all the while a new extraterrestrial threat puts Earth at risk.
This alien threat turns out to be Brainaic, one of the more powerful villains in all of DC Comics. The trailer also revealed a handful of new playable characters in the form of Supergirl Robin, Poison Ivy, Bane, and Darkseid. Although the latter is a pre-order bonus so we’re not sure if he factors into the story at all. You can view the trailer above and let us know if you spot anymore more clues we may have missed.
Injustice 2 is developed by NetherRealm Studios and is currently set on a May 16th release in the US and May 19th for Europe. Do you think Batman becomes a secondary antagonist in the sequel? Or is Brainiac the only one we have to worry about?
