From the video game series, to the DC comic book, Injustice has been a hit. The tale of a Superman gone bad is heading to home video for an October release.
Injustice had, at the time, a fairly unique story. Though we’d seen similar stuff already, it’s story about a rogue Superman was still shocking. That, of course, was mainly due to the fact that it actually used Superman. Yes, it was an “alternate universe” but there were no stand-ins in Injustice.
And now that first story is making its way to the world of home video. From Mark Peters, who helmed Warner Bros’ Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, Injustice will sport an all-star cast with Justin Hartly and Anson Mount onboard as Superman and Batman respectively.
Inspired by Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios’ popular video game, and the best-selling DC graphic novel based on the video game, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Oneby Tom Taylor, the animated film Injustice finds an alternate world gone mad – where The Joker has duped Superman into killing Lois Lane, sending the Man of Steel on a deadly rampage. Unhinged, Superman decides to take control of the Earth for humanity’s own good. Determined to stop him, Batman creates a team of like-minded, freedom-fighting heroes. But when Super Heroes go to war, can the world survive?Warner Bros
