During the DC FanDome this year we are back to talk about Injustice, animated film to be released on October 19 in home video and inspired by the plot of the first two dedicated video games, Injustice: Gods Among Us And Injustice 2. The series, which will see many heroes collide with each other in a riot of hypotheses about “what if Superman was crazy”, offers an alternate reality where the Joker manages, through a deception, to have Lois Lane killed by Superman himself.
The Kryptonian, having lost the person he loved most in the universe, he will kill all the criminals and put himself at the head of the world to avoid further evil. To stop him, Batman will have to think about it, who will try to put together a team of rebels ready to fight the hero of tomorrow, the symbol of hope, now gone on a rampage.
The concept also closely resembles the scenes seen in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, in the Knightmare phases: the idea of a bad Superman has always been very tempting for the writers, to the point that there are productions that imagine the stories (The Boys), others that vary it just enough to make it a little less good ( Hyperion) and finally elseworld stories that tell what would have happened if Kal-El had not fallen in Smallville, Kansas, but in the Soviet Union (Superman: Red Son).
Of Injustice a comic was also released some time ago, with the same title, which tells those events that instead were shown in the video games developed and produced by Ed Boon, mind behind the two chapters and also in Mortal Kombat.
Since Boon himself will be a guest at DC FanDome, the arrival of a is not impossible Injustice 3, or at least news related to the brand, perhaps ready to return even in a crossover between deadly kombattenti and DC heroes.
The animated film will be released on home video by Warner Bros. and is available in preorder (releasing November 4) from Amazon, following this link.
