This is like the 3rd time already.

Totally want this, please have Cyborg in it!

Giant Bomb REALLY wants us to watch this trailer apparently.

Posted by fox01313

If they did the slot machine wheel of Test your Luck in this game (from MK9) it might be worth playing.

Batman can kick Grundy through a building??

Edited by Undeadpool

Flash REALLY gets the business in this trailer...anyway, game looks cool. Happy to see Netherrealm not just shoving another MK onto the market...I feel like we've been here before, have we been here before?

Okay, so it's not just me thinking they have posted this in multiple forms already.

Batman just kicked a guy really far for a human.

Posted by Grixxel

Stupid, even for comic book standards. Batman kicking Grundy through a fucking building? Superman upper-cutting Flash into space and then smashing him down to earth? Riiiight.

That's because Batman is really Chie in disguise.

1:01 is Lex Luthor, guy in a greenish mecha suit. Has to be, right?

It's ridiculous how much I love the idea of a Chie, Batman crossover.

death stroke needs to be in this

This new Giant Bomb is great, from not showing a lot of trailers to multiple viewing of the same one.

@Shadowjester: No sale for me

After MK9 this is exactly the kind of game I was hoping Netherrealm would make next.

If you look at it again, the suit is more red by my eyes, but yeah; it's probably Lex Luthor.

I question the inclusion of Harley and Grundy, they could have chosen way cooler characters, but whatever. I guess they just wanted people who were in Arkham Asylum / City.

I think that was only because of Superman's eye beams hitting him

@Bestostero: You know, you might just be right there.

Superman design looks eradicator-ish. Batman looks like the movies. Good calls.

Not sold on the Flash armor. Looks...not aerodynamic. And wonder woman's design looks lazy.

Looking forward to it!

Because all these super heroes are SO realistic otherwise... sigh

Too bad I don't like fighting games.

Posted by WulfBane

Nice pulls there @Alex. I honestly love the extra silly characters that have shown up in the various books. Now I just want to see someone do an Arm-Fall-Off Boy cos-play at SDCC.

Posted by rolvtd

Is it just me, or does it sound like Tim Daly's voice when Supes does the ole atmosphere punch to Flash? Cause that would be rad.

Posted by geekbot

I'm not sold, but I'm happy to keep an open mind about it. I'm a big DC fan, and the MK9 was pretty awesome. Here's hoping!

Edited by featurepreacher

Why are they doing this? Don't they know how uncoordinated it will be to hit someone past the atmosphere and slam them back to the ground only to NOT KILL THEM AT THE END OF THE FIGHT? They should just stop this and start working on the aerial kombos and interactive stages of MKII(MK10) or reintroduce Killer Instinct.

getting my hype on

Posted by Silver-Streak

The only thing I have problems with is Batman kicking Solomon Grundy through a building. I hope that gets cut by released, because nothing I can think of makes that make sense. Besides, you know, Superman wearing the batsuit. (Or maybe Connor Kent wearing the batsuit? He's alive again, right?)

Other than that, it looks hilariously over the top in the right ways for everyone else. Apprehensively excited.

Posted by Spoonman671

I really don't care much about comic characters, but I'll keep an open mind about this knowing that Netherrealm is developing it.

Posted by CitizenJP

Pretty excited to see an all DC-character fighter. Looks very awesome.

Posted by Roger778

I can imagine seeing Superman and Batman beating the crap out of each other in this game, so I'm on board.

Seriously, that was an awesome trailer.

Posted by MeatSim

Batman is the only one that really wins.

Posted by FishboneJenkins

Why are people hung up on the Batman / Solomon Grundy kick scenario? What's the alternative? Nerf Batman so he's weaker than the other characters? It's a fighting game, gotta balance the characters out. Imagine a Mortal Kombat where only some characters can knock others into the stage fatalities...weak sauce. It looks like it will be fun to do super hero shit!

Posted by MooseyMcMan

I hope the story mode is just Batman systematically defeating everyone else. Because that's what Batman does.

If there is a story mode that is as good as MK9 with this game, then count me in!

Hey, you've gotta fill all the character archetypes somehow. Personally I think Grundy makes a great Zangief.

Still somehow better than the DC Online trailer, where the JOKER was able to track him.

Harley and Grundy ARE cool. I mean Harley is probably the most famous villainess right now given Catwoman's conflicted status on that front. And Grundy? He was born on a Monday, and we know how much the Bombcrew love their Mondays.

about time

Posted by n0nametaz

I have a feeling their are going to be a lot of characters in this game. Joker has to be in it for sure!

@MooseyMcMan: Word.
