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.

Edit

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

UPDATE

Here's one of his alternate costumes.

Everyone just plays Batman.

Whoah, Aquaman looks surprisingly cool! In fact, I think I wouldn't mind playing as him.

Not going to buy this game.

Why? Besides Wonder Woman, there's not one female in the game that's a REAL "god".

Harley Quinn and Catwoman really?

Bring out the real female gods like Cheetah, Circe, Zatanna.

I like that the character looks a little bit older than his recent appearances in comic books. It makes him stand out not just as a hero but as a ruler. He actually looks kinda weary as if he knows that he is responsible as a leader. Loving the use of the trident. This trailer seemed bloodier than previous videos the company has put out.

@ThunderKong:

Wait, how is Cheetah a god?

She's gone toe to toe against Wonder Woman and Flash. She has superspeed, superstrength, and incredible agility.

Can't say the same for Harley Quinn.

Cheetah would absolutely destroy most of the revealed playable characters.

WOOHOOOOOOO! Proud day for Aquafans

@ThunderKong: You know that they are not in how?

Was the game roster leaked?

Did you help make the game and you know who is in?

If so then please tell me the whole roster, I would love to know.

Very nice I must admit!

@ToferBooboo:

Of course I don't know for sure. But, the way things are looking right now (based on the revealed playable characters), it doesn't look good for fans like myself.

To be honest, I can't stand that so many of the revealed playable characters are Batman characters. Because none of them are "GODS". They should really rename the game. And BTW if I wanted to play as Batman characters I'd go play the many Batman games that are already out. Please, no more Batman characters. I'm sick of it.

You have to remember that this is a game that is catering to the Mortal Kombat fans first, this is being made by the people who created Fatalities and gore in video games. I do not think that a lot of them on the team knew of certain characters until they began making this game.

There was also a lot of chances for every person to speak their mind when it came to characters making the roster. You wanted a certain character in, then you should have been on their twitter/Facebook months ago talking to them about why you feel a character should have the chance to make it. They have said countless times in all of their interviews that they listened to all of their fans on who they wanted in, and they even replied to a lot of them.

And concerning the Batman thing, when it comes to the casual comic book reader, Batman is probably the biggest DC title and it has the memorable characters. You have Arkham Asylum/City, you have all the animated series', and you have like 6 movies all on Batman. The franchise is MEGA popular and recognizable to both children and adults who do not read comic books and know who people like Cheetah or Zatanna are.

Not everyone visits Facebook or Twitter, myself included. And besides, I had no clue at all that was going on, as did probably the majority of other people. Nice job spreading the word, NOT!

And trust me, I'm not the only one who is thinking this: I'M TIRED OF BATMAN! It's been done to death. Who cares if it's "popular" it's getting tiring.

Who cares if they don't know who Cheetah, Circe and Zatanna are? Why can't they just be introduced to them? Do they really need to know every single character in the game? And besides, these 3 characters are known from various outlets as well.

Cheetah has appeared in cartoon films and TV shows including Justice League: Doom and Justice League (Animated Series).

Zatanna was shown in the Justice League Animated Series as well, also in Smallville and Young Justice.

Circe also appeared in the Justice League Animated Series.

All three ladies made appearances in various different Justice League games and on DC Universe Online, where Circe is a major character. Zatanna and Cheetah also appear in Lego Batman 2.

1. They spread that news like crazy, if you didn't know about it then you obviously just didn't follow the game at all.

2. It doesn't matter if people are tired of Batman being popular, because he IS popular, nothing you can about that. He is going to be in everything as are the characters that everyone loves because EVERYONE loves them.

3. It does matter if they do not know who they are, because if they do not know who they are then they do not know who to put in. If a fans do not request a character that they do not know then why are they going to put them in their game? It is theirs and the fans that make a game happen, they listen to the people who are going to be buying their games.

If 400 different people asked for a character then there is a high chance that a lot of fans want this character in, if only 50 asked if a character was going to be in the game then there is a lower chance that the character would appeal to the casual/pro gamer and the casual comic book reader. It is a video, they are limited on what they are putting into the game. I can understand your points completely, because they do make sense, but at the same time you're being completely unfair and close minded about a VIDEO GAME COMPANY'S decision on comic book characters.

Aquaman's finally grown a pair of balls! thanks Geoff Johns for making him cool again

So happy to see NRS made AM look like a badass! And DC's New 52 too! Props to them both.

Also, you guys notice Cap Marvel's alternate? Looks pretty bad-A.

I like how NRS are DC fans themselves plus, between their MK style the darker photorealistic style fits DCU IMO, namely the Batman characters. I just think this game looks great as oppose to seeing anime comic book characters(that Marvel games prefer)

Pretty much there's no way to please "everyone" no matter what the game but I think so far NRS and DC working together have done a great job just from the previews, if this game doesn't go down as DC's best fighting game much less one of their best DC games in general I'll eat my hat.

I hate that voice, possibly the worst modern Aquaman VA I can think of.

Regardless, I might hafta start playing games again.

Nice!!

Posted by SNascimento

Wait, I'm confused. There was already a alternative costume to Arthur... the flashpoint one is the third. Is it from a DLC or chracters have three difference costumes instead of two?

Posted by BlackWind

Pass, don't like Flashpoint Aquaman.
