How-about-a-magic-trick

Guys, I think we’ve reached peak Injustice 2 saturation. There have been a stupid amount of character highlight videos so far, written by an equally stupid fanboy in the run-up to the actual release of NetherRealm’s Batman V Superman simulator (Self-burns are best done at night so that you can cry yourself to sleep), and I think we’ve got the final spotlight video right here.

I’m still banking on a launch trailer done to the tune of Heroes by David Bowie because using licensed music is all the rage these days, but until I am proven to be the Nostradumbass of our industry, here’s a Joker trailer that wants to ask you one question: Why so serious?

I think a lot of people are going to feel conflicted over this latest redesign of the ace of knaves. Then again, I actually…dig it? NetherRealm’s Joker looks like the cinematic Suicide Squad clown prince of crime during his emo phase, before he got pocket money to go get garish tattoos inked all over his body. Nice. It’s a design which actually does work for me, although my biggest question is how this Joker has managed to resurface.

I’m no doctor, but having Superman’s fist rip your heart out after you trick him into killing his wife, unborn child and entire city is usually not healthy for any organism with a working respiratory system. Anyway, that sounds like the entire roster for Injustice 2 so far! Here’s the full list of brawlers so far, listed below. Because I care guys, I genuinely do.

28 fighters, not bad. There’s still nine other characters that need to be revealed, although I’ve got a feeling that they’ll be part of the season pass offerings to roll out later this year. Injustice 2 is out on May 16 for ye current consoles.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Hammersteyn
    • Original Heretic

      The game character looks like a better actor, though.

  • Captain JJ

    He looks less thug and more psycho, so they have my vote.

    • Hammersteyn

      At least he doesn’t look like a ghetto pimp anymore

      • Captain JJ

        Yea.

        • Hammersteyn

          Hopefully they fix Harley, don’t like women that looks cheaper than the swill I drink at the pub

          • Captain JJ

            We can hope.

      • Avithar

        LMAO

  • Craig “CrAiGiSh” Dodd

    Doesn’t have that Joker look tbh

  • Kikmi

    I’m really impressed with the visuals and the new sort of art style theyve got, but one thing is bothering me, that theyre recycling old MK and IJ sounds for the new games. Surely WB could rerecord new assets for new games? Or maybe thats a bit much to ask.
