The lights are on
NetherRealm Studios is releasing their DC-based fighter in the spring, and we expect a steady stream of character reveals as the months roll on. As we've been doing with Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, we'll be updating this story as NetherRealm and WB pull the curtain back. Keep an eye on this story to keep up to date on the latest reveals in the Mortal Kombat developer's upcoming title.
(Click for full-sized version)
Sinestro: The Green Lantern baddie has entered the fray. You can catch a quick glimpse of him in this video from Injustice's YouTube page.
Aquaman: That dude that talks to fish will be trading blows with the rest of the DC Universe. Check out his reveal trailer.
Killer Croc: Our favorite scaly villain is making an appearance, though it doesn't appear that he's going to be playable. Instead, he joins the likes of the Riddler and the Penguin in a nasty tag team. Suddenly, that umbrella doesn't seem so silly.
Lex Luthor: Lex Luthor is joining the fight and he's bringing a purple power-suit with him so he can match blows with the other over-powered heroes and villains.
DeathStroke: A trailer showing off DeathStroke's gunplay and sword fighting skills has shown up online.
Green Lantern: No details yet. Creator Ed Boon confirmed via Twitter that Green Lantern is in the game after the box art appeared
Joker: No details yet. Creator Ed Boon confirmed via Twitter that Joker is in the game after the box art appeared online.
Batman: It wouldn't be a DC fighter without the Caped Crusader, and he's here in full force. He features the typical assortment of gadget-based projectiles and attacks, and his Batcave stage features plenty of environmental hazards.
Green Arrow: Oliver Queen brings his bow skills to the fight. He comes packed with a number of different arrow types to annoy your opponents from afar.
Harley Quinn: Joker's main squeeze has some gadgets of her own,
including a pistol, a massive hammer, booby-trapped gift packages, and a
deadly birthday cake.
Superman: The Man of Steel can attack with his iconic assortment of powers, but he can also knock an enemy into orbit (and back) with his ridiculously over-the-top super move.
Catwoman: Batman's on-again, off-again love interest can attack with her whip and bladed claws, and looks to be one of the quickest characters in the game based on her debut trailer.
Wonder Woman: Most fighters in Injustice fight from only one
stance, but Wonder Woman can switch between her lasso and her
sword/shield combo. Her moveset will change significantly depending on
which stance you're currently in.
Flash: This superhero features one of the more useful abilities in the game, as he can essentially slow down time. With his enemies moving in slow motion, it's far easier to get in a flurry of attacks. Oh yeah, and he can sprint around the world to build up a massive punch to the face.
Solomon Grundy: This unfortunate Gotham resident has a particularly brutal super move. He pulls cleavers out of his back, slices his opponent with them, and then pulls a tombstone out of his own chest. Of course, he proceeds to crack it over his victim's skull.
Nightwing: Robin's alter-ego is one of the more agile fighters in the game, and can combine his dual sticks into a large staff. He also comes equipped with bladed projectiles that can be tossed from the ground or air.
Cyborg: This half-robotic fighter is deadly from any range with
his laser-guided missile attack, and can pull out a massive cannon that
emits a devastating laser blast.

I have returned from the future to tell you that this game is as epic as it looks!
this update took longer than expected.
i have yet to be surprised by the addition of any of the new characters
This looks pretty cool
Personally, I could never think of DC without thinking of Green Lantern. He's one of the coolest superheroes ever and definitely my pick for this game.
Oh yeah this is shaping up to be a versatile fighter well worth a day one purchase.
Not a bad pick in the bunch so far, and this can only mean even more fantastic locales to show off the environmental combat. Plus, and I realize this is semi-sacrilege when talking about NetherRealm, but I'm happy to see a minimized gore factor myself.
Look'in like a much better roster now with our old friend the Emerald Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime. I wonder if you get more interesting character reactions if you put Batman and Joker fighting each other for instance.
just a thought.......but an MK and INJUSTICE fighter.
Have to say I would very much like to see batgirl or huntress added to the mix. Basically any other female character than the obvious choices of Wonder Woman and catwoman. Also this is one of those games I really hope they support with dlc. More so than they did with mortal kombat. I would be move than willing to pay the five bucks per character for the chance to get some awesome characters that don't always get their due. I also hope they support it with extra skins too. I already know the CE comes with at least one extra skin for Batman Superman and Wonder Woman, but I hope they do more. High hope they do as much with the single player side of this as they did mortal combat.
Also where the f$&! Is BANE?! He would totally fit in this crowd.
I really hope Nathan Fillion will be voice acting the Green Lantern
I want Deathstroke. He would fit perfectly in this game
Did Solomon Grundy attempt to impersonate the Hulk?
Flash. Woaaooaoaoaoa savior of the universe.
Another good pick....Power Girl.
LOBO needs to be in this.
