Superman and Batman make an appearance in the promo, and the over-the-top supermoves and cutscenes from the original game look like they’ll be returning too, with the Dark Knight firing the Batwing’s weapons on the Man of Steel.
While there’s no major hints about the sequel’s plot as yet, we see a bunch of new characters added this time around including Supergirl , Aquaman’s nemesis Black Manta, telepathic simian Gorilla Grodd and Red Lantern leader Atrocitus (accompanied by villainous feline Dex-Starr).

Supes later repays the favour by using the Caped Crusader as the ball in a game of mid-air Pong.
The trailer was met with fervent excitement on Twitter:
So #Injustice2 gameplay looks pretty damn sweet!

The game is set for release at some point in 2017, but hopefully there’ll be more details to emerge during E3 over the next few days.
