I'd like Robin please. And no, Nightwing doesn't count lol.

Good interview too, not really that interested in the game but this interview made me a little bit more interested.
I wasn't too interested either, but after just letting the mindset go of comparing it to MK, and realizing it's a new IP by netherrealm studios, I am pretty excited.
Jeff, I like the goatee on you. It works really well with the shape of your face, etc. Keep it on!
I haven't been paying much attention to this game but it actually looks pretty awesome. I really enjoyed MK9 and I'm digging the more cinematic style special moves they've thrown in. MK9 was really good at doing the story stuff and taking you into the fighting and making it pretty seamless throughout and this looks like it takes it to another level. I just hope the fighting community get behind it as MK9 online is fucking dead. I just hope the tutorial is as good as he says. Most fighting game tutorials are extremely bad yet they're some of the hardest games to get into.
Hector Sanchez might be the best dressed person to ever be on Giantbomb. Except for tuxedo Brad Muir, of course.
If the end boss isn't the Anti-Monitor I'm gonna punch something
If Geoff John's is writing the game this is almost a given. :P
like'n the facial hair Jethro.
Who would win in a fight? The Batmobile or Jim Ross?
"Comic storylines can get pretty stupid too..."
No kidding, Jeff. No kidding.
How many Adidas track suits does Jeff own?
I wonder if netherrealm will ever make a PC port..
Tao Feng characters DLC or no sale.
Hector Sanchez is a pretty goddamn good name.
This guy's pretty rad.
Also, there is SO MUCH chromatic aberration going on in the shots of Jeff.
Could MK9 & INJUSTICE ever come to PC, or will we just continue to hope for a PC port?
Like Bane, will Ed Boon use our hope against us?
Per Ed Boon & En Vogue, "You're Never Gonna Get it."
Now that's some INJUSTICE

Jeff is the best at interviews.
Agreed. His experience and general interest in this game really do help as well.
Pretty late to the party here but this is an excellent interview. Very good information and a cool vibe throughout. I'm excited to see how this'll turn out. Looks good even to my somewhat MK obsessed eyes.
This game looks really cool.
Looking foreword to this game and I like DC vs. MK.
Same here. Clean!
Wow all the little features like the frames, the tagging combos, and the practice mode stuff sounds really great. I love that Netherealm is pushing fighting games forward like they are. The genre has been dormant for too long. Sure, it's come back and it's good, but so few features are really added.
For the way the old MK games got shit on by many fighting game fans, NeatherRealm is doing amazing work in creating single player content and options that allow the player to learn the deeper aspects of their games. I'm not really into DC stuff beyond Batman, but they sure know how to craft one hell of a game, so I'm in
Great interview! The story mode in MK9 was a delight, glad to hear they are focusing on that again. Looks like a rad game.
Glad Jeff asked about the online compatibility issues in MK9 and that Netherealm is building an architecture to alleviate the problem. Playing online in MK9 became a crap shoot after the DLC released.
I'd like to see swamp thing in this.
FAT kev smith

Injustice still looks just as stiff as the last MK and for me that is a dealbreaker. It's just not fluid.I just don't see anything gripping here, still looks weird and floaty like MK.

Well MK 9 is my favorite fighter since SF II or MK II... both great to play and watch. It plays like MK and if you didn't like that fine, but plenty do and did. All the added features made it the most full featured fighter I've ever played (and the features added were good, unlike, say, the bad "campaign" type modes that have been in Soul Caliber, Tekken, and even older MK games) So not going to agree at all.
At the very least, if you don't like Netherealms fighters, you can hope that your Capcom fighting games or whoever you happen to like, learn from them and add some actually meaningful features into their games next go around. Especially ones that enhance practice modes and teach deeper knowledge of fighting games to players, as that's the single most neglected area in the genre.
Very excited for this.
Random, but loving the MJ XI breds he's rocking.
Ugh, I'd love a decent DC fighter but this looks awful. The animation is so damn stiff and those character designs are horrible. I have faith in the story mode (glad to hear the DCAU voice actors) but I couldn't care less about its jerky-ass gameplay. I had fun with MK9 but I certainly never stuck with it.
I have zero interest in DC stuff (with the exception of Batman) but I want this game because MK9 was so good. Great interview. Lots of information, gameplay, and fresh Jordans.
Man, MK vs. DC was pretty dumb.
If somebody makes a Marvel vs DC game I want it to be Capcom, in the MvC mold. If Netherrealms wants to make their own, secondary version, fine.
Where is Hawkman!?
jeff handles this with tact
Jeff's hair is very "Vegeta like" in this video.
I've never seen Hector in a video before, but he seems like a really cool dude. Would love to see more of him at E3 and similar events.
Agreed. One of my biggest deficiencies as a video game enthusiast is that I've never properly learned to play a fighting game. All that stuff about frames and priorities always been too arcane for me. I've screwed around in Smash Bros and Soul Caliber, but that doesn't really count. This sounds like it might be my best chance yet.
This was a great interview, too!
This game is looking great so far. Will be getting this for sure. MK9 was awesome.
I loved MK9 but I'm not a huge fan of the way their games control, it's just real stiff. This doesn't look to be much different. I wish they'd work on an MK game with a more technically capable studio. Imagine Project Soul working on an MK game, it would be so fluid!
As someone who doesn't get much enjoyment from going online and getting my ass kicked, the story mode in Mortal Kombat was rad as hell. It sounds like this is basically that with 100% more Batman, so I'm completely on board.
This game looks pretty cool.
Isn't the guy with the bow and arrow an Avenger?
Thats Green Arrow in the game.
Jeffs interviews are the best. Games looking good, but still dislike the stage hazards, makes the game too dependant on stage selection.
Man, Netherealm does not do female faces right at all.
