The lights are on
The fourth Shattered Alliances trailer for Injustice 2 dropped today via the Injustice YouTube channel. Having seen Batman, Superman, and Supergirl's sides of the story in previous story trailers, this one gives fans a closer look at Gorilla Grodd's "Society", a cabal of supervillains including Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, Captain Cold, and more. You can take a look at all the monkey business for yourself down below.
As with previous story trailers, there is a lot to unpack. Eagle-eyed fans will notice that Scarecrow here is shown in a lab oat when standing alongside Grodd, giving some credibility to the fan theory that his appearance when fighting is brought on by his fear toxin. In one dramatic shot, we see Batman and Superman appearing to have a conversation over a ruined Justice League table, hinting at the possibility that the two may have to team up to battle Grodd's Society, or even something worse.
There is a lot of focus on the Flash, Captain Cold, and Deadshot in the trailer, most of it teasing Flash being defeated by the two villains. While it borders on spoiler territory, nothing is explicitly shown, and it does a good job displaying the high level of drama NetherRealm appears to be going for with Injustice 2's story. Let's hope they can pull it off.
Yesterday, NetherRealm also released a cool gameplay trailer for Captain Cold, which you can see down below.
Recently Injustice 2 fans got a look at Catwoman's gameplay in a new trailer, which you can check out right here.The previous trailer focused on several major villains, including Grodd and Scarecrow. You can take a look at that right here.

I am glad this is a game instead of a movie. Otherwise it would just be one other thing to ignore.
I am so super pumped. I'm planning to get the first one soon so I'm caught up. Just for everyone who reads the comics, is the society group a thing because I don't read comics but I know of grodd and this seems awesome.
Still can't get over how stupid that Scarecrow. Still, it's nice to see Professor Zoom has a role in the story. Shame Black Manta is limited to a stage transition because he and Zoom's extreme pettiness towards their respective hero counterparts is always entertaining.
How the hell can Deadshot put a bullet through the Flash's leg? It wasn't even a cool shot or anything. Just points his rifle and fires. Kind of undermines every enemy any Flash has ever fought when a dude with a gun takes down Barry Allen.
What I am loving about I2 is that the character designs are combining their looks from across different iterations
