Several new images from the upcoming animated adaptation of Warner Bros. Injustice have now been exposed, 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 Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Superman, and Green Arrow, as well as hints of the drama that will soon befall them.
An image confirms 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, striking a whole in the chest of the infamous villain, perhaps in a twisted search for a heart.
After an unthinkable tragedy propels Superman into a dangerous new state of mind, the Justice League will be torn apart, forcing members against each other in Injustice, a brand new DC animated film. Inspired by Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios’ popular video game and best-selling DC graphic novel, Injustice: Gods Among Us: First Year by Tom Taylor, the animated film Injustice finds an alternate world gone mad – where the Joker tricked Superman into killing Lois Lane, sending the Man of Steel into a deadly rampage. Unbalanced, Superman decides to take control of the Earth for the good of humanity. Determined to stop him, Batman creates a team of like-minded heroes fighting for freedom. But when Super Heroes go to war, can the world survive?
