Straight from the video game (and comics) series of the same name comes Injustice, the latest DC Comics animated film from Warner Bros.
Personally, I’ve had it with the “evil” Superman gimmick. Injustice most definitely gets a pass with it though, since it was one of the very first properties to incorporate the theme.
Based on the video game series from NetherRealm, Injustice features a world where Superman turned into a totalitarian monster. The Last Son of Krypton brutally murdered Joker in retaliation for causing the death of Lois Lane, and things went downhill from there. Pretty sharply too.
The new animated feature is based on the first days of that world. That includes both the original game, and Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One by Tom Taylor. That’s the first run of the comics series, FYI.
The film has some excellent voice talent attached too, with actors Justin Hartley and Anson Mount onboard as Superman and Batman. As for the rest of the cast, it’s loaded with DC headliners.
Justin Hartley (This is Us, Smallville) and Anson Mount (Star Trek Discovery, Hell on Wheels) lead the Injustice all-star cast as Superman and Batman, respectively. The massive cast also includes Janet Varney (The Legend of Korra, You’re The Worst) as Wonder Woman, Brandon Micheal Hall (God Friended Me) as Cyborg, Kevin Pollak (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) as Joker & Jonathan Kent, Anika Noni Rose (The Princess and the Frog, The Good Wife, Dreamgirls) as Catwoman, Reid Scott (Veep, Venom) as Green Arrow & Victor Zsasz, Edwin Hodge (The Tomorrow War, Mayans M.C.) as Mr. Terrific & Killer Croc, Gillian Jacobs (Community, Invincible) as Harley Quinn, Oliver Hudson (Rules of Engagement, Nashville) as Plastic Man, Laura Bailey (Critical Role, Avengers Assemble) as Lois Lane & Rama Kushna, Faran Tahir (Iron Man, Star Trek) as Ra’s al Ghul, Derek Phillips (Friday Night Lights, 42) as Nightwing & Aquaman, Yuri Lowenthal (Ben 10 franchise, Young Justice, RWBY) as Mirror Master, Flash & Shazam, Zach Callison (Steven Universe, The Goldbergs) as Damian & Jimmy Olsen, Brian T. Delaney (Fortnite, Batman Unlimited) as Green Lantern, Fred Tatasciore (Family Guy, American Dad!) as Captain Atom, and Andrew Morgado (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) as Mirror Master Soldier.Warner Bros
