Following the release of the announcement trailer, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have now unveiled another trailer for Injustice 2, which gives us our first look at some actual gameplay footage from the video game. The trailer features a few of the returning characters such as Batman, Superman and Aquaman, as well as some of the newcomers. You can check it out below.

The newcomers that we get to see in the trailer are Supergirl, Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd and Black Manta.

    Aquaman’s Jurassic World finisher got my attention.

      I love how he can summon squid tentacles to grab at enemies. So cool.

        @disqus_wE1fXabHb3:disqus @flavortang:disqus Yeah, it always kinda bugged me about Injustice 1, that Aquaman couldn’t really summon any sea creatures as a part of his power set. Glad to see they are correcting that the second time around.

          It only intrigues me more about what James Wan has in store for us. The stuff he could show with a $150 million budget is mind-boggling.

    Now if only dceu could put this type of energy and badazzness in their $410 million budgeted crapstravaganzas’.

    Looks absolutely incredible. Can’t wait to play as Supergirl. I dig that they’re using her New 52 haircut/costume design.

    Injustice was great. This one should be even better!

    • SAMURAI36

      Atrocitus is catching my eye right now. I wasn’t a big Aquaman fan in the first game, but he’s definitely catching my eye now.

      • flavortang

        I just love that this is another high-profile DC game that will inform non-fans about certain characters so they if/when they pop up in the DCEU they may be more inclined to see the movie(s).

        • SAMURAI36

          Precisely!!! This is why I praise them for covering all aspects of multimedia, and not just movies. It gives potential fans a chance to become familiar with their characters, from several different facets.

  • B Man

    Hoping for a Captain Boomerang reveal. Roster looks dope so far.

    • SAMURAI36

      Yeah, I’m thinking more Suicide Squad at this point is academic.
