DC Entertainment's next animated feature will be an adaptation of Netherrealm Studios' best-selling Injustice: Gods Among Us video game, and we recently learned that the movie is set to arrive on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray and Digital on October 19.
Now, the first trailer has been released online (via IGN), and it should give those unfamiliar with the games a much better idea of what to expect.
The teaser begins with The Joker and Harley Quinn murdering Lois Lane, who is carrying Superman's unborn child at the time. When word reaches Kal El, he abandons the principals he swore to uphold and goes on the warpath. Can Batman and the rest of the Justice League get through to their leader before he crosses the line? And if not, do they have any hope of taking down a rampaging Man of Steel?
Check out the trailer below along with the Blu-ray cover art, full cast list, and extra features.
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 One by 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?
