Superman cuts a bloody path through the world and the Justice League in the Red Band trailer for Injustice. Coming courtesy of Warner Bros. Entertainment, this animated adaptation of the popular DC video game sees The Man of Steel unleashed and on a mission of control that will pit Batman and the rest of the Justice League against Earth’s mightiest hero.
After an unthinkable tragedy propels Superman into a dangerous new mindset, the Justice League will be torn apart forcing members against each other in Injustice, an all-new DC Animated Movie. Inspired by Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios’ popular video game, and the best-selling DC graphic novel based on the video game, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One by Tom Taylor, the animated film Injustice finds an alternate world gone mad – where The Joker has duped Superman into killing Lois Lane, sending the Man of Steel on a deadly rampage. Unhinged, Superman decides to take control of the Earth for humanity’s own good. Determined to stop him, Batman creates a team of like-minded, freedom-fighting heroes. But when Super Heroes go to war, can the world survive?
This Red Band trailer should have fans of the franchise eager to see the dark tale of Injustice finally brought to life. An adaptation of Injustice is something DC enthusiasts have been wanting for quite some time, and it’s good to see that this long-awaited effort will not shy away too much from the violence and bloodshed that occurs at the hands of this tortured and desperate Superman.
