2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us and its 2017 sequel are set in an alternate DC Universe where Superman is driven mad after being tricked by Joker into killing his wife Lois and their unborn child. Five years after that tragedy, Superman rules the world with an iron fist, forcing the Justice League of the regular DCU to cross dimensions and battle this tyrannical Man of Steel.
The Injustice saga has also been greatly expanded through various spinoff comics, which flesh out the five years leading up to the events of the first game and then bridge the gap between the first game and the sequel. It’s possible the animated movie could be an adaptation of the comics rather than the games, or even an entirely new story set within this dystopian DC Universe.
Presumably a formal announcement of the Injustice movie will follow, hopefully with plot details and a confirmation of the cast and crew involved. For now, check out the trailer for Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two:For more on DC’s recent animated movies, check out IGN’s recent reviews of Superman: Man of Tomorrow, Batman: Soul of the Dragon and Justice Society: World War II.
