Batman vs Superman in Injustice: Gods Among Us

Warner Bros and NetherRealms teaming up to release a brand new DC superhero combat game next year.

If you have ever spent time imagining who would come out on top if Superman and Batman ever faced off in open combat, you certainly wouldn't be the first fan to have done so, nor the last by some distance. And now, thanks to the just announced Injustice: Gods Among Us, Warner Bros are potentially offering fans the power to play that battle out in their own hands, facing two of the greatest superheroes ever against one another in the upcoming combat game from Mortal Kombat devs NetherRealm. Injustice: Gods Among Us is set to pit some of the DC Universe's most famous and infamous superheroes and villains against one another and will introduce a deep, original story featuring a large cast of favorite DC Comics icons such as Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and many others. All of those characters can be seen in the official announcement trailer below... Set in a world where the lines between good and evil are blurred, players will experience heroes and villains engaging in epic battles on a massive scale. Hopefully that will mean that Batman and Superman will be able to face off against one another. The press release features word from both Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment...
€œWith Injustice: Gods Among Us, we are creating an all-new franchise with incredible battles set in the DC Comics Universe. NetherRealm Studios is the extremely talented team behind the latest Mortal Kombat hit and it is developing a game unlike any other in the fighting genre.€
... and Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios...
€œWe can€™t wait to reveal Injustice: Gods Among Us because it will give our fans and gamers an epic experience as they battle like gods as their favorite DC Comics villains and heroes. Our team is excited to make a fighting game that is filled with fast-paced action, incredible story-telling and iconic DC Comics characters.€
So far so very promising. Now they just need to announce the full roster of playable characters (including SURELY The Joker), and the excitement will really start to build. The game is scheduled for release in 2013 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the Nintendo Wii U. Check our Injustice hubpage for more updates on the project.
