Injustice 2 Story Trailer Released!

This morning, Warner Bros. Interactive released the first story trailer for the anticipated upcoming game Injustice 2, sequel to the acclaimed Injustice Gods Among Us.

It’s clear that things will ramp up even further in the sequel as our favorite heroes go toe-to-toe again in this explosive alternate universe. For those who didn’t play the game or read the comics tying into the series, the Joker—bored with being foiled by Batman—kills Lois Lane while playing a game with Superman. That death, along with the fact that Lois was pregnant at the time, consumes Superman and drives him to kill the Joker, setting in motion a confrontation between Batman on one side and Superman and Wonder Woman on the other.

This new trailer features an enigmatic narrator describing the events leading up to Injustice 2 as if viewing a chess board. We see the Trinity, Damian Wayne in his Robin costume, Supergirl, Bane, and Poison Ivy, along with Brainiac at the end, revealed to be the narrator.

According to Warner Bros., “the line between hero and villain has become blurred… While Batman has emerged the victor in his battle against [Superman’s] Regime, a new threat arises and poses the ultimate threat to Earth.” It appears that threat might be Brainiac, Darkseid, or even Wonder Woman. Towards the end of the trailer, Batman, Superman, and Supergirl all turn on Wonder Woman, who was defeated by her prime counterpart when the regular universe stepped in to help Batman fight the Regime.

Injustice 2 is an upcoming fighting game developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interative. A sequel to the popular Injustice Gods Among Us, the game is five years after Batman and the Insurgents toppled Superman’s Regime and follows Batman’s fight against the Regime’s remnants as a new threat puts Earth at risk. The game features new playable heroes like Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, Blue Beetle, Darkseid, Deadshot, and more. The game releases on May 16, 2017—ten days after Free Comic Book Day!
