Green Arrow, Joker, Green Lantern Join Injustice Cast

Hopefully you're a fan of superheroes with an affinity for the color green.

The cast of superheroes and villains filling out Injustice: Gods Among Us continues to expand, with Netherrealm Studios and Warner Bros. confirming Green Arrow, Joker, and Green Lantern are in.

These characters join Batman, Catwoman, Cyborg, Flash, Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Solomon Grundy, Superman, and Wonder Woman. There are plenty more announcements for the future, too. I'm waiting for Matter-Eater Lad.

I think this game will be a quality product but will steer away from it regardless due to my dislike of fighting games.

No Hawkman? aw..

That looks like an accurate portrayal of Green Arrow alright, I hope more of those character interactions like GA and Grundy had are in the game (though I thought Grundy's line was a little too much like The Hulk).

This game looks fantastic.

Maybe its me, but a couple of those animations/moves are quite reminiscent of Hawkeye's in umvc3.

Posted by BabyChooChoo

I'm already going to buy this game, but this just makes me want to buy the fuck out of it.

I don't even know what that means. I just want this damn game.

This looks COOL!

Posted by Darth_Mercer

I'm so glad they went with original Ollie and not the stupid New 52 one.

You should see Catwoman, her animations are 80% Freddy Krueger.

Yeah, but at least those are characters from the same company. Eh, I never get tired of a bow guy twirling his bow around like a saw.

I'm totally down for what is basically a sequel to MK9, because I loved that game.

Too much Batman going on, though. We have - what - Batman, Nightwing, Catwoman, Harley, and the Joker.

This is true, reminded me of Dante as well.

Well there's just so many melee moves that a guy using a bow can have.

well batman is the Dc series with the most mainstream appeal due to the arkham games and the nolan movies and the amazing old cartoon.

and Solomon Grundy. They might as well just call this game "Injustice: Batman and Friends"

Posted by TheMathlete

I'm really liking the look of this game. I didn't really get into MK9 but I might still pick this up.

Posted by Redhotchilimist

I'm still not in on this. I figured a game from Netherrealm that wasn't stuck in the, in my opinion, really ugly design of Mortal Kombat would be a good way to get in on the fun of their fighting system. But this looks just like the same thing! I much preferred the way Marvel VS Capcom 3 would emulate a comicy look with all the black shadows and saturated colors. I don't know what artist they are emulating, but I wish they'd gone for one of DCs animated shows or something.

They fighting looks all right! Don't know about the environmental stuff, weird to see that sort of thing outside of Smash Bros. Could be fun.

Posted by Blitz_Kill

Game looks good except for the crappy environment traps and the ideal mimic of the mk engine. I mean, i know its supposed to just be the mk engine, but it looks like mk9 with new dlc characters.

I was really pleasantly surprised to see this too. Young, clean shaven Ollie sucks large.

I really hope they add Animal Man to the roster-- he has the potential to have a cool move set.
Posted by Sammo21

When they make this a game with Marvel characters it will get cool.

Posted by chilipeppersman

@theveej: ya me too. Its made by fucking netherrealm after all. They re-vitalized mortal kombat, lets hope they bring all that awesomeness into this one!

i believe there's a lot of Batman related characters because the story involves Superman's team going against Batman's team, so maybe Batman recruited help from his villains or maybe Superman enlisted Batman's villain

Posted by PenguinDust

So is that Green Arrow TV show on yet? I thought I saw an ad for it, but I only caught a glimpse. If so, I understand why they would play up GA in this trailer. Synergy!

Posted by RPGee

For the record, that Cyborg link is the incorrect Cyborg. It goes to the one from Marathon.

Leaving it the way it is is funnier, though.

"Time for the grand finale!"

*fireworks*

... oh. that's nice. Fireworks are nice, Green Arrow. No really, they're nice. That was good 'grand finale' there. You really tried hard and I acknowledge that. What? No, I'm not being sarcastic at all! I enjoyed the fireworks, really! They were really... uh, yeah okay that was stupid.

That is a weirdly deep cut. I would wholeheartedly applaud it though the absence of his team mate Karate Kid would be hard to explain.

Arrow is suppose to premiere tonight...

Matter-Eater Lad? BOLLOCKS!

I'm waiting for Sun Boy and and Element Woman.

Posted by DukesT3

He fucked that dude up.

Posted by crithon

So far Solomon Grundy and Harley Quinn, there should be more villains now.

Posted by lokey013

Hawkman would look sweet....where's Brainiac?

I noticed that and found it equally as hilarious.

actually thought the very same thing when watching it, they are very similar characters though so i guess its unavoidable

Solomon Grundy is actually a Green Lantern bad guy, or at least an Alan Scott Green Lantern enemy, he does show up in Batman a fair bit but there are a lot of crossovers like that in the DCU

@patrickklepek: Do you happen to know if they've got Mark Hamill back doing Joker? He's said before that he's done doing the VA for him, but hopefully that's not the case. There doesn't seem to be any Joker footage out there yet, guess we can just wait and see.
