    Yeah I remembered looking up somewhere that Ed Boon was trying to put up a teaser either for the next Mortal Kombat game or Injustice and clearly I thought it would been Injustice as Mortal Kombat just released Mortal Kombat X last year and Injustice in 2013.

    Nuff said the graphics look even more improved and the story might be even more exciting, and I am enjoying the game getting a sequel, can't wait to see more in the future of course.

    I was wondering when we would finally see the next Injustice game, and that trailer was pretty awesome. I got a big smile on my face when Supergirl showed up :D.

    Not sure how I feel about all those armors the heroes are transforming into, but I am curious to see how they'll be implemented in gameplay o_O.

    The plot surrounding Batman and the post-Regime society dealing with individuals who want to bring it back, all the while an overarching threat looms, sounds like it'll be an interesting and engaging story :).

    Atrocitus and Grodd joining the roster is pretty cool, and I'm definitely curious to see how Grodd fights :cool:.

    I wonder what the voice cast will look like? Will they get Nicholle Tom to reprise Supergirl? John DiMaggio as Grodd? Jonathan Adams as Atrocitus?

    EDIT 6/11: Gameplay video featuring Supergirl, Atrocitus, and Grodd:

    Supergirl's voice sounds familiar, but I can't quite make where I heard it from. (I doubt it's Camilia Luddington reprising from Infinite Crisis) I think might... might be Tony Todd voicing Atrocitus, and Ike Amandi might be Gorilla Grodd, if not Fred Tatasciore.

    I thought Supergirl sounded exactly like Laura Bailey :).

    Yeah, I can kind'a hear Laura, but we'll see. Although... I don't like the look of Supergirl's face. Something about it looks... Nhegh...

    Indeed Wonder Woman is in it, and so is Blue Beetle. I want to say that's Eric Lopez reprising, but I don't know.

    Anyway, new trailer with Harley Quinn and Deadshot.



    I think it's safe to say Tara Strong decided to do her own thing with the character and try not to sound exactly like Arleen Sorkin.

    As for Deadshot... I don't know if it's actually a variant for Deathstroke. And I wanna say that's Matthew Mercer voicing him, but I just don't know at this point.

    Yeah, Matthew Mercer was my first guess for Deadshot :).

    Harley returning was pretty much a given, but it's still nice to see her, and she's looking pretty good in that trailer and in those outfits :D.

    And of course her Hyena's are now part of her fighting style :p.

    Deadshot's a nice surprise :cool:.

    That does make me wonder if Superman in Kingdom Come might have lost is restraint when confronting Joker if Lois

    Actually something I just found out, Matt Mercer, who allegadly started voicing Deadshot before, didn't complete his work due to his involvement in the voice-actors strike, so they replaced him. In fact, both he and Troy Baker, and possibly Richard Epcar too, may not be in the game due to the strike.

    I'm 90% sure that's Vanessa Marshall reprising from Young Justice. Which I completely approve :D.

    And from those brief bits with Jaime unmasked, I'm guessing Antony Del Rio is Blue Beetle? It sounds like him.

    That...would explain why Deadshot sounds so different in the new gameplay videos, or why they're heavily modulating his voice now :ack:.

    Kinda disappointed to find out Netherealm is part of the issue with the voice actors strike :(.

    Definitely has a similar tone, and yeah Antony was my guess for Beetle to.


    Aye, if only the gaming industry treated it's talent pool as fairly as in animation, hence why Rob Paulsen and the like have it easy there.

    Also, who's betting that's Patrick Seitz taking over?!

    I wonder if this means they're going to have to recast Harley too, given Tara Strong is part of the strike as well :ack:?

    Be kind of funny if Seitz becomes to Matthew Mercer what Mercer was to Troy Baker :p.
