Warner Bros. Home Entertainment offers the first official look at its next animated film, the adaptation of the well-known video game Injustice which later also expanded to the world of cartoons. We’ve known for a long time that this was going to be his next movie, but until now we haven’t been able to catch a glimpse of it. Now we have this image that offers a close-up of Superman, and in the background we have Wonder Woman and Batman.
The film is part of the DC Animated Movie universe, although it is inspired, as we say, by the video game “Injustice: Gods Among Us” by Netherrealm Studios and the subsequent comic series “Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One” by the writer Tom Taylor. The story takes place in an alternate Earth where the Joker has tricked Superman into killing Lois Lane, causing the hero to lose control. This deranged Superman decides to take control of Earth for his own good, prompting Batman and his allies to try to stop him.
Injustice: Gods Among Us launched as a mobile game and on video game consoles in 2013, pitting members of the DC universe in deathmatches reminiscent of Mortal Kombat, also produced by Netherrealm Studios. The game series became so popular that DC released several comics that explored the story.
The upcoming Injustice animated film stars Justin Hartley as Superman, Anson Mount as Batman, Laura Bailey as Lois Lane and Rama Kushna, Zach Callison as Damian Wayne and Jimmy Olsen, Brian T. Delaney as Green Lantern, Brandon Michael Hall as Cyborg, Edwin Hodge as Mr. Terrific and Killer Croc, Oliver Hudson as Plastic Man, Gillian Jacobs as Harley Quinn, Yuri Lowenthal as Mirror Master, Flash and Shazam, Derek Phillips as Nightwing and Aquaman, Kevin Pollak as Joker and Jonathan Kent, Anika Noni Rose as Catwoman, Reid Scott as Green Arrow and Victor Zsasz, Faran Tahir as Ra’s al Ghul, Fred Tatasciore as Captain Atom, Janet Varney as Wonder Woman, and Andrew Morgado as Mirror Master Soldier.
Rick Morales, known for Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, is the producer. Matt peters“Justice League Dark” directed from a script by Ernie Altbacker, writer of “Batman: Hush.” He also produces Jim Krieg, and Sam Register is an executive producer.
Injustice is expected opens this fall.
