Bane and Lex Luthor Playable in 'Injustice: Gods Among Us?'

The two famous villains could be on the roster according to a new leak!

This has me filled with joy. Over at Comic Book Movie, someone has posted pictures of what appears to be a magazine article for the upcoming fighting game. As you can see, it says the man who broke the Bat and the famous Superman villain will be part of the "well-stocked roster."

According to the description, Bane will serve as a powerhouse, focusing on grappling moves and raw strength. Basically, he sounds like an amped up version of Zangief. And as expected, Luthor will be in a power armor that will likely grant a whole variety of attacks including missiles and a defensive shield.

The website didn't provide a source for these images and again, this isn't technically confirmed, but it looks pretty legitimate to me. Also, does anyone else think Lex looks an awful lot like a certain A-list celebrity that enjoys saying yippie-ki-yay?

They could of had one of like 200 better villains then Bane. Never understood how he was a treat to anyone other then Batman.

For the same reason we have Harley,Joker,Catwoman,Nightwing,Batman,Deathstroke,there are like 2000 characters who would wipe the floor with them

me: (to Bane) Awesome!

me: (to Luthor) ....ugh.

Swamp Thing, please. Maybe Manhunter, Sasha Bordeaux, Deadshot, Catman..just some ideas.

Most importantly. This game needs multiple costumes for the characters.

I'm not a fan of the costume either but I imagine there will be at least one or two alternate costumes.

This. It's the bit with Superman using his Heat-vision. So, his reveal is kind of a non-surprise. Bane, on the other hand, is awesome. Glad they put him in.

We're getting close to release now, how many more characters have got to be revealed? I'm going ahead and predicting that Aquaman will be the next reveal and another villain....I would say Zod, but he'd play too similar to Superman. Braniac? Darkseid? (optimistic....)

@RedQueen: When I had the chance to speak with one of the game's producers, he said they were attempting to "go bigger" than MK9 in every regard. That game had a default roster of 27, so hopefully this game will have at least that many to begin with.

Likewise. They did such a fantastic job with the latest Mortal Kombat.

Even as a batman fan, this is getting tiring

this, DC has so many other great characters yet they keep resorting to batman characters

I know right

Might as well make a batman fighting game

Edited by Birthright

Siniestro, Aquaman, Shazam and Doomsday Confirmed!!! There is a scan with better quality and in the story preview they mention them!

I know it's sooo valid, stupid DC why put in recognizable and popular characters, who cares about actually selling copies of the game? Throw in some no name's who are "underused" outside of comic books and watch the copies fly off the shelves!

Posted by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek

That looks awesome. Lex was awesome in the DC Universe Online cinematic. This should be good.

Deathstroke.

That is all.

Sure, so instead of pushing their other characters so they can have a universe as popular as marvels they decide to only push batman, whos already very popular, makes sense

And i dont know why you brought up dc, they have nothing to do with this game, the netherrealm guys have already said dc is not forcing them to include any characters or anything

There's a reason certain characters aren't popular, not everyone has mainstream appeal. It'd be like expecting a Wildcat movie to make as much money as a Batman or Superman movie. You can give a unpopular character all the exposure you want at the end of the day if a character isn't appealing they aren't going to become popular no matter what kind of push they get.

Lex Luthor Likely would good enough for this game..

Well, im not asking for a character like wildcat or ambush bug to be in the game, i do have realistic expectations. But each major character has a supporting cast to draw from, i dont want to have only one character's (batman) supporting cast featured and everyone else is just forgotten

Plus, i want to play with superpowered characters in a game where superman can punch someone out of orbit instead of a big bunch of street levelers that feel out of place for the most part

I rather like they have included Bane & Luther. Personally I'd like to see Aquaman, Captain Cold pre-DCnU), The Shade, Vic Sage (my illogical fanboy pick), Terry McGinnis (if they got rid of a couple of the bat characters already appearing or as DLC), Prisoner of War (would be an awesome character to play as).

This is a bit late, but is anybody kind of hoping that one of Bane's alt costumes is the outfit from TDKR? I'd personally love that.

We've only seen one alt costume so far and no, it wasn't from TDKR.

@k4tzm4n: Oh, what costume did they reveal? And they usually have more than one, so I'll keep up the hope.

@iragulasuperbia:

I reaaaaaaaaally hope he has more costumes. I'd love to see his classic Knightfall one.
