Aquaman Trailer for 'Injustice: Gods Among Us'

Oh yes, it's time for Arthur Curry to throw down in DC's upcoming fighting game!

We've known he'll be playable for quite some time now, but now we actually get to see him in action and what kind of role he'll play in the campaign, too! IGN posted his reveal trailer today and, bad Admiral Ackbar impression aside, it's quite epic.

I absolutely cannot wait for the game to come out on April 16th.


Here's a couple screen shots provided by Warner Bros.


Here's one of his alternate costumes.

@k4tzm4n: Is water-manipulation even an Aquaman ability. I thought Mera was the one who did that.

@ravisher: He somewhat is bearded in the part where he's walking towards the tidal wave with his army behind him; also has an alternate costume. :)

I cannot wait to see the "Regime" storming Atlantis in the comics. This game is going to be epic.

He has had that power in the past

@Jonny_Anonymous: Oh. I'm fairly new to knowledge comes from animation, film, and the current New 52. They should give him back that power in the comics, he'd be even more awesome.

Looks pretty awesome. Phil Lamarr is good casting for Aquaman. I want this game right now!

@Bigby_Wolf7: well, in Aquaman's case, it works. he is royalty, after all.

I don't like his design in this game...

Not sure if I'll buy this game. Not really a fan of Superman, Green Lantern, Flash, or Aquaman. But I love the Bat-Family, Green Arrow, Deathstroke, Cyborg, Bane, and Grundy; and Wonder Woman looks alright. Maybe I should just wait for the next Arkham game instead....

Regardless, this trailer was pretty cool. This was probably the best portrayal of Aquaman I've ever seen. Does anyone know any good Aquaman reads that won't make me think of character as a 'lame-o'.

Start reading the New 52 Aquaman and i guess you can also read the new 52 justice league. And after you get familiar with the series and LOVE IT(because you WILL), you go spread the news to all the Aqua Haters you know, and tell them that they can either "GET DOWN OR DROWN, BECAUSE AQUAMAN AIN'T NO CLOWN"

I'm seriously not a big fan of Phil as Aquaman (he's suited to many other roles) but man what an epic trailer! I wasn't a big dc fan before the new 52 but since then Aquaman has easily become my favorite character. Can't wait to throw down with my podcast crew.

OMG Aquaman is in the game. And he looks so badass!!!

Posted by WilliamJBatson

Don't forget, it also showed of SHAZAM in action as well! Even if it was just a wee bit. :)

best looking so far

Posted by ccraft

@ravisher: No, but it would be cool as an alternate or DLC

Posted by Grey56

This is welcome news, thanks for the share.

Edited by ccraft

@WilliamJBatson: yeah, but his alt costume was a bit weak...

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

Not surprised by the announcement, but happy to see that Aquaman will be in the game

Aquaman looks really cool and his fighting style looks very sleek and water-filled (Kind of like Rain from MK9). Best looking so far I think. Shazam on the other hand looks a bit weird.

Am i the only one who finds his voice a little off?

Sounds to me like Phil Lamar (Hermes Conrad, Samurai Jack, etc).

Did anyone else think that boot at the end belonged to Orm?

Posted by Samimista

Yes!!!!!!! I'll be playing this for sure now. =D

I love this so much.

You, you're going to be my new best friend.

Also, I really do not like how lifeless his eyes look.

They're almost not there at all.

in words of miley "that's pretty cool"

Posted by DMXN

So Shazam(or whatever Captain Marvel is called now) and Flash are following the regime and siding with Superman?

Posted by batman_begins

KING of the SEAS is here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whoo-hoo! Now c'mon, Black Manta and Black Adam!!!

Posted by AlKusanagi

Make game with 52 characters.

Everyone just plays Batman.

Posted by Bobsjonjon

Lol@ pretty cool... Can't wait!

Posted by Vitalius

I think this Aquaman´s version is good because has atribute of image of some people have (the fish guy) and the bad ass image of Aquaman that people know if trully know about what Aquaman is. I love the shark attack even people call him "fish guy" commanding a White Shark to attack him it is pretty bad ass.

That was awesome.

I am excitement.

I approve. Some of the costumes still look a bit too fancy for my taste, though.

yea the costumes have been bugging me for a while, i haven't seen a character design i like yet which is so weird

Posted by Black_Claw

This is seriously awesome. But I was expecting his special to be him summoning Cthulhu. Oh well, at least he has an army of giant crabs.

Posted by kid Apollo

@AlKusanagi: hahahaha

Posted by Wardemon32

You mean to tell me Flash is on Superman's team? This makes no sense because Flash looking liked he was on Batmans side inthe Story Trailer.

PSYCHE! Who's useless now, bitches?!

Oh, I hope this is his super attack:

He is honestly the greatest thing to happen since the New 52.

? was that Black Adam? Am I missing something?

And I really enjoy Aquaman's look. I haven't liked most of the costume designs so far, but Aquaman's is great.

Posted by CitizenJP

That was epic.

Posted by gcmoreno

NEPTUNE'S BEARD!!! He's voiced by the guy who did John Stewart in JLU
