DC and Warner Bros. have announced their next direct-to-video animated movie, and it's one fans have been waiting to see for a long time. The hit video game Injustice: Gods Among Us is finally getting the animated treatment; the new movie will adapt the dark and brutal story of the 2013 brawler.
Oddly enough, the new project first came to light via a press release for Batman: The Long Halloween Part Two, DC's upcoming animated feature. A press release for the Batman movie's Blu-ray set confirmed that its bonus features will include a trailer for an Injustice movie. You'd think there might have been a little more pageantry involved with announcing such a long-awaited adaptation, but whatever.
Refresh your memory of the Injustice series below!
Not much is known about the Injustice movie at this stage, but with The Long Halloween Part Two dropping in July, we can probably assume it'll land before the end of 2021.
It's probably also a fairly safe bet that Injustice will serve as a faithful adaptation of the 2013 video game, which was praised at the time for its twisted plot. Developed and created by Mortal Kombat studio NetherRealm, Injustice: Gods Among Us saw the Justice League pulled into an alternate reality where Superman, in response to an unimaginable tragedy, has rebranded himself as a fascist dictator who would rather murder bad guys than throw them in prison.
This doesn't sit well with Batman, and so game sees the Dark Knight leading a band of freedom fighters against the Man Of Tomorrow, with the help of the Justice League from "our" universe. It's shockingly good stuff for a fighting game, and spawned an excellent sequel and a number of great comic book prequels. I'm legit shocked it took this long for a movie, to be honest.
No doubt an official release date will be announced soon, so watch this space.
