The lights are on
NetherRealm Studios continued its recent string of Injustice 2 reveals with a new trailer showcasing some of the fighting game's cinematic story mode. This trailer is the first major look at the story, and manages to fit an awful lot into its brief runtime.
In the trailer, we see Batman and Robin working together, as well as Batman trying to reason with a newly liberated Superman before inevitably coming to blows. Later, players get their first look at Cyborg battling Blue Beetle in a facility that looks similar to the one Superman is being held in. It's too early to tell for certain, but if his character retains the same allegiance to Superman as in the first game, he could be partially responsible for the Man of Steel's escape. At this time, it's unknown if Cyborg is playable, as only a few moments of gameplay involving him are present here. It wouldn't be the first time NetherRealm has featured a non-playable character in story mode, as Sindel, Baraka, and Rain all made appearances in Mortal Kombat X's narrative and were never made playable.
You can watch the trailer below.
NetherRealm also showed off a new piece of art, depicting an embattled Superman struggling against the combined efforts of Catwoman, The Flash, Blue Beetle, and Harley Quinn.
You can watch the last Injustice 2 trailer, which revealed gameplay for Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and more, here.

Can't wait. Loved the first game
All I can say is this is definitely going to be interesting for sure- in terms of story and everything else.
Cyborg is playable, he's part of the leaked roster that has essentially been confirmed.
I love it when the family comes together for dinner...
Superman- "The battle never ends!" Batman- "When does it stop?" lol what?
Kind of unrelated, but I would love to see Rocksteady tackle a story like this in a Batman game.
That picture reminds me so much of Superboy Prime kicking everyone's ass at once.
Hopefully this doesn't follow the same route the last game did and if they make another comic series of it, there's more freedom. Like how we know Batman was gonna win and the cringe of watching them try to villainize superman on and off.
Why is everyone's faces so ugly? Lol
