Like the original, Injustice 2 aims to pit unlikely superhero friends and foes against one another.
When it was announced at E3 2016, Injustice 2 showed off a small number of heroes and villains while Brian Cranston delivered a chilling monologue. Today’s trailer; however, is all about fleshing out the plot while giving perceptive brawler fans a chance to spot previously unannounced heroes and villains. This trailer has a monologue too, but it’s narrated by Brainiac (a common enemy of Superman).
Again, like the original Injustice game, it seems previous (although sometimes turbulent) allies like Batman and Superman will once again brawl throughout the DC Universe. The trailer makes it seem as though Superman is once again captured or manipulated. Of course, there’s likely more to it, otherwise the story would come off like a total rehash.
For those who missed it, I caught glimpses at Poison ivy, Brainiac, Robin in addition to the clearly stated Darkseid who’s a pre-order bonus. At first, I though the green tubes were Bane’s, but I’m fairly certain now they were just part of the Brainiac reveal. Here’s an in-game render of Brainiac in Injustice 2 for you to decide for yourself:
