Several new images from Warner Bros. upcoming animated adaptation of Injustice have now been unveiled, teasing the vendetta that will tear the Justice League apart. The images give us a good look at the large roster of beloved DC characters, including the likes of Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Superman, and Green Arrow, as well as hinting at the drama that is soon to befall them.
One image gives us confirmation that the animated outing will not shy away from the violence inherent in the Injustice saga, showing Superman, who has become blinded by the destruction and death caused by the Joker, punching a whole through the chest of the infamous villain, perhaps in a twisted search for a heart.
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. Taking inspiration from Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios’ popular video game, and the best-selling DC graphic novel, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One by Tom Taylor, the animated movie 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?
The animated iteration of Injustice has amassed an excellent cast led by This Is Us and Smallville star Justin Hartley as Superman and Star Trek Discovery and Hell on Wheels star Anson Mount as Batman, Injustice features an ensemble voice cast that includes Janet Varney (The Legend of Korra, You’re the Worst) as Wonder Woman, Brandon Michael Hall (God Friended Me) as Cyborg, Kevin Pollak (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) as Joker & Jonathan Kent, Anika Noni Rose (The Princess and the Frog, The Good Wife, Dreamgirls) as Catwoman, Reid Scott (Veep, Venom) as Green Arrow & Victor Zsasz, Edwin Hodge (The Tomorrow War, Mayans M.C.) as Mr. Terrific & Killer Croc, and Gillian Jacobs (Community, Invincible) as Harley Quinn.
