For the past 16 years, voice actor Susan Eisenberg has been bringing Wonder Woman to life in both video games and animated series and features. Used to playing a more kind and compassionate version of the princess of Themyscira, Eisenberg says that voicing her in Injustice 2 was an adjustment.
Speaking with the gaming podcast Namek vs. Saiyan, Eisenberg broke down the differences between this version of the Wonder Woman and the versions she’s played previously.
“I’m so used to playing her a certain way which is with kindness and compassion, and not that she doesn’t have a mood or two along the way, but in Injustice she’s just a total badass. She’s kind of at war with a number of the characters. It was definitely different, but a departure that is fun to play.”
Even though the character has taken on a harder edge in the sequel to 2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us, Eisenberg feels that the character will forever be a part of her.
“There’s just a lot of her that I like to think has rubbed off on me. Especially in that effort to always try to do the right thing, take the high road in life and have compassion. I think if I had played her for six months on a TV show it would have had that lasting impact, but because I’ve been playing for a long time there’s just like an osmosis that occurs. I feel her looking over my shoulder.”
Eisenberg’s other Wonder Woman-related credits include Justice League, Justice League: Unlimited, DC Universe Online, and Justice League: Doom.
“Injustice 2 is the super-powered sequel to the hit game Injustice: Gods Among Us that allows players to build and power up the ultimate version of their favorite DC characters. Featuring a massive selection of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains, players can personalize iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game. Additionally, for the first time, gamers can take control of how their characters look, fight and develop across a variety of game modes.”
Injustice 2 is available now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
