The lights are on
After announcing its May release date and teasing fans with an image of Superman holding a lifeless, veiled body in his arms, NetherRealm has released a new trailer that reveals three new characters: Brainiac, Robin, and Darkseid.
The trailer, called "Lines Are Redrawn" casts its various heroes (Superman, Batman, and Supergirl) in various thematic lights while briefly alluding to events from the first game (such as Superman killing The Joker after the latter murders Lois Lane), the trailer. As various superheroes square off against each other, we get our first glimpse of Robin's new outfit and fighitng style (though no gameplay is shown). At the end of the trailer, it's revealed that Brainiac will be joining the fight this time around. After that, we see Darkseid suiting up for battle (which he really should have done before he left the house), before revealing the character will be a pre-order incentive. You can watch the trailer below.

Semi interested , Not there yet
Pre-order BS means I won't be buying at launch. Besides we all know they're gonna have 2-3 different editions down the line like MK X did. Why bother?
Day one DLC, already on the disc but you can't have it unless you preorder or purchase later! I guess, this is what drives sales nowadays. To each their own I guess.
Awesome that these characters are joining the fray. Not awesome that Darkseid is a free character only if you pre-order.
Darkseid as a pre order is pretty lame. If they are going to put Darkseid in, then make him a focus of the game, not just thrown in for the sake of pre orders and dlc.
Damn you, preorder bonuseeeeeeees!!!
Its been said to death but the pre-order character or item bs has got to stop. WB is relentless with this, we're not stupid.
I always buy these games, play the story mode, and then remember that I don't like Netherealm fighters and go back to KI or SF. Maybe I'll learn my lesson this time and wait to buy the standard edition used for a few bucks once there are multiple other updated versions of the game.
The moment the ultimate edition is up for pre-order IT'S MINE!!
Poison Ivy equals day one buy for me. Love Ivy so much!! Finished reading Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death a few weeks ago so I cannot be more excited to play as Ivy. My two ivy plants are even named Pamela and Isley(Poison Ivys real name). If you can't tell I am a huge fan.
What about Swamp Thing?
Looked pretty cool. I'm excited to try this out.
