Next thing you know, Warner Bros will release a complete edition like Mortal Kombat that includes all the DLCs. I think I'll save my money for now.

I cannot contain my joy right now. I was one of those voices screaming Zatanna from the rooftops when they were asking about new characters a while back. However was it really that necessary to give her costume a plunging neckline and her super attack was fairly unoriginal and uninspired when it comes to a magic user, but I'm not going to split hairs over this HBIC making the cut.

But she'll need a villain to size up against and I hope it will be Klarion but if not then Felix Faust or Brother Night would also be good options.

Finally! Zatanna is one of my favorite DC heroes, she's magic which is always good! Not much of a Ranged player myself, probably still stick to Hawkgirl.

They make Zatanna a playable character, but John Stewart a simple character skin. > _ <

@turpskadey: That's not exactly true. Alot of the voice actors are the same from the Justice League animated series. I think Zatanna's voice is from Young Justice.

@hogshead: Yes, the fact she only speaks backwards once in her whole moveset is disheartening.

@koolaid: sadly they only snagged Conroy for Bats and Daly for Supes from the Animated series voice crew, It was really noticeable when Brad Garret didn't voice Lobo. Although by the sound of it she could be the voice of Zatanna from Young Justice.

It's not really that odd. All of the "heavy hitters" are already in the game, ie Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc. Who's left at this point that

A) Fans want to see

B) Isn't just another version/type of an existing character, ie another Green Lantern, Kryptonian, etc

C) Isn't a Batman ally/villain. I mention this because Boon/Neatherealm didn't want to fill the game with Batman characters because they easily could of as alot of them would make good fighting game characters. Basically trying to avoid the Capcom Vs X scenario where the Capcom side ends up being mostly Street Fighter characters.

Zatanna fits that criteria, and as mentioned before she won the Twitter poll that Boon did.

Blue Beetle? Black Canary?

There’s still two more characters left, but I don’t know if it will be either of them.

Would the Ted Kord Blue Beetle be all that different from Batman, ie a gadget focused character? Would the current Beetle be all that different than Cyborg?

Canary could be interesting. It be an easier character to do since they could reuse a bunch of Sindel’s moves.

It’s basically always going to boil down to popularity and/or who they (Neatherrealm) think would be a fun or interesting character. The ladder is usually why fighting games end up with character choices that baffle people, as in “Why would they put in that character instead of this character?” Once the roster has all the must have characters or the characters that are going to sell the game the rest of the cast is basically free reign.

Okay, Zatanna having two fighting styles ala Nightwing is pretty clever. That voice actress though. Woof. Not at all what I would go with.

*sigh* I love DC and I love Zatanna, but I can't stand this games art style... All the costumes look sooooooooo bad, and the ladies use the same model and they all look ridiculous.

Anyone know any good Zatanna stories I should look into? I don't know too much about her.

In addition to the other suggestions, look for Paul Dini's - Zatanna:Everyday Magic published by Vertigo....great one and done story...you got some stellar suggestions from @Kennyshat though.

This was a pleasant surprise, Zatanna is one of my favorites.

Problem is, NetherRealm absolutely cannot design an attractive/normal looking female character at all.

On the good side, it looks like she has some great moves. I don't really like her voice that much, either.

@mrfluke: I'm still hoping for Static or Red Hood, two of the more popular characters in that polling.

I think if anything, Red Hood will probably end up being a special Nightwing skin, like the way they handled Jon Stewart Green Lantern.

dunno about black canary, but blue beetle was one of the least popular characters on that poll ed boon ran.

Black Canary did OK, coming in somewhere in the middle of the pack. But yeah, Blue Beetle was one of the worst performers in that poll.

I'm not a fan of her design, especially in the face. Her moves are pretty underwhelming, and her voice is annoying. I like that her trait adds the top hat and wand, though.

Awesome!, Zatanna didn't even cross my mind for some reason when I was talking to a friend about who else might show up.
Some of the best ones we came up with were Booster Gold, The Question,,Blue Beetle, Huntress, Black Canary, Animal Man or Beast Boy and Starfire. We ruled out most Batman Villians since a lot show up in the stage transitions and more obscure characters (Crazy Quilt or Captain boomerang would be something!).

@koolaid: Yeah, that really sucks. When a character is supposed to be voiced by Jenny and then isn't, it's incredibly noticeable and disappointing. On the other side, when she voices a character that she traditionally hasn't voiced in the past, (like Phoenix in MvC3 for instance), it's noticeable and AWESOME.

@sergotron: Paul Dini's Zatanna run from 2010 was pretty good. If you like some Grant Morrison crazy, the way she was used in Seven Soldiers was quite good as well. Oh, and the current Justice League Dark book has her in it and is great, especially since Jeff Lemire started writing it.

I'm a young justice fan and everything, but that voice doesn't really fit this Zatanna to me, it threw me off as soon as I heard it. I don't NEED it to be Jennifer Hale, but something along those lines seems like it would have been better.

@gelf513: Yeah, totes. Its just that most of the characters are voiced by their Justice League Unlimited voice actors and Jennifer Hale played Zatanna in that. That's where I was coming from.
