Injustice 2 is taking a much more forward approach with their story this go around. The first time, they actually pulled a bait-and-switch and didn’t reveal that this was a small scale “Crisis” story, as the Justice League of our Earth got mixed up with a darker version from another Earth in the original Injustice. This time though, the focus is soley on this other Earth, and the fallout of what happened in the original game.
The story is being revealed somewhat via a “Shattered Alliances” line of trailers. The first one was the setup, today, we got a bigger look at the scope of things. Batman is putting together a new Justice League to try and clean up the mess that Superman Regime made. The problem, is that a lot of his allies were either with Superman, or put out of commission by him. Yet, he does find some allies in Black Canary, Harley Quinn, Flash, Green Arrow, and a surprise in Green Lantern. Of whom is trying to redeem himself in a big way.
What’s also interesting though, is that this trailer seems to unveil more characters. If you look carefully, you’ll see that Reverse Flash, Bane, and Captain Cold are shown for the first time. The last two are seen with Gorilla Grodd, which means another alliance is underway in this world.
Injustice 2 arrives May 16th.
