Batgirl Likely Playable and New Wonder Woman Skin Revealed in 'Injustice: Gods Among Us'

Check out the first image of Batgirl, Wonder Woman's alternate costume and figure out when you'll be able to get (yet another) new Batman skin!

Well, looks like someone made a bit of a mistake today! New downloadable content hit XBLA... and it was Batgirl! You obviously can't download her yet (with Lobo it would reach 99% and never complete), but it looks like this is pretty much confirmation for the next playable character. Or, they're pulling an amazing joke on us, which I sincerely doubt. That's two DLC characters down, two to go. Who do you think the remaining characters will be?

In other Injustice: Gods Among Us news, they revealed yet another new outfit today. As we all guessed, it's the costume from Wonder Woman #600! They also informed us the Batman Flashpoint skin (which we saw in the Lobo video) will be free with May 7th's compatibility pack -- this is also the day Lobo becomes available.

Viners, are you thrilled Batgirl is likely the next DLC character or are you part of the crowd that doesn't want more Bat characters in the game?

Batgirl is an awful choice. And I guess we already know who the other two guys are: Playable Movie Advertisement #1 and Playable Game Advertisement #1.

I'm apathetic unless she has a Stephanie Brown skin. Or is just Stephanie Brown.

Lobo, Batgirl, Zod, Scorpion (from MK). That's the (underwhelming, uninspired, what have you) list.

We need Black Manta...

What a waste, I hope it's just a skin, or a photo shop!

I would prefer to see a different style of character. She is a Harley Skin to be sure.

Posted by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek

Happy about the skins.

Not about Batgirl...

Simulating Killing the joke who would be so cruel.... Meeeee! Also I want atrocious

Posted by ccraft

I feel like this is fake, you know? Ed got ton of messages for MM to be DLC, so I feel that this might be fake to go a long with the rumored codes found in the game for Zod, Scorpion, and Batgirl which they could be placeholders.

I'd love it if DC decided to put Animal Man in the game, that's all I want!

Cmon Batgirl? Really? First Lobo now Batgirl? Terrible choices Netherealm...

Posted by Omega-Man

AH NO That means Scorpion and Zod are the last two characters damn it Boon you cop out, why Scorpion? THIS game is a DC comics game NOT Mortal KOMBAT!!!! if I wanted to play as Scorpion I'd buy MK9.

Posted by Black_Claw

@scarlet_spider_forever: Hey Lobo was one of the most requested characters for this game. Batgirl on the other hand....

Posted by Ghidoran

@scarlet_spider_forever: What? Lobo was an amazing choice and one fans have been wanting since long before the game's release.

Posted by telepathic666

I would like something a little less...batman, other people have villains too, and i want zatanna to be in this game so badly but she probably...sadly.

Posted by DarklyDreamingDeadpool

remember the good old days? when you could unlock new characters and skins by just playing the game? i hate it if a developer release the game in little pieces like this. though i want this game really bad, i'll be waiting for some kind of "complete edition".

So was Martian Manhunter, that's why I think this is fake.

Now I'm sure the guys at Netherrealm Studios can really make her awesome and make her a character that people will want to play as, but in all honesty, I am with the good number of people who are disappointed in this character choice. Nothing against Batman and the Bat family, but this game already has, like what, 5 characters relating to Batman alongside Batman in it already? Do we really need any more? Martian Manhunter has been requested since day one alongside Powergirl judging by the fan-polls, why not either of them? Shoot, off the top of my head I think that Etrigan and/or Huntress would make for more satisfactory additions over Batgirl.

But hey, I'm sure she'll play fine and I'm sure that she'll be great fun to play as...just wish we weren't getting so much Bat-saturation whereas the most character/title representation we'll get from other characters here is...like, what, 2-3? I do mean really, 7 Bat-characters...

I love Batgirl as a character and I am not upset. But when they announce Scorpion officially, I'm going to be let down because that slot COULD have gone to Red Hood. Ultimately, the line up I was hoping for even before Lobo was announced was:

1. Red Hood

2. Supergirl

3. Lobo

4. Brainiac/Martian Manhunter/Zatanna/or Black Canary

But, we're not getting any of those save Lobo. We will however be getting Zod.

And is it me, or was Solomon Grundy a waste of a slot!? If they wanted a dumb mindless character, they should have made it Bizarro. Oh well, fingers cross for part 2.

Posted by ZombieMowlcher

I agree with whoever says black manta. I would like to see He-Man and skeletor.

Edited by evilvegeta74

There should be an option of whether we want to download the characters or not if you bought the season pass. I think it's only fair that if you have paid you should have the option to choose any 4 DLC characters to download. Characters like this should not be shoved down our throats.And where's my Red Lantern Ring.

Posted by cellophaneshield

Unless we get a surprise and Black Manta, Martian Manhunter, Black Canary, Mirror Master, Beast Boy, Circe, Poison Ivy, or Zatanna find their way into this list... I think I'll stick with the original cast of characters....

Posted by csantilli27

I'm a huge Batman fan and even I have to say this was a huge let down. There are so many other better choices than Barbara. Looks like the rumors are true and Zod and Scorpion (who isnt even a DC character! come on!) are next to be revealed -.-

Yes!!

Edited by Onemoreposter

Batgirl? Eh. Hopefully there is a Cassandra Cain skin. Otherwise it's a complete loss.

Posted by YoungJustice

Black Canary would be a horrible choice.

Can we have some respect from this awesome story.

Posted by Lightburst

Batgirl...ugh no hope at Jason Todd now, welp maybe there is a Cass Cain skin :/.

Edited by Perfect 10

batgirl? they really want me to buy this game, but sorry only get used a year AFTER. i refuse to pay more than 40 bucks for a game

Posted by StrangeMan

I think I'm more dissapointed that it's Barbara, nothing against her or anything, but it would be WAY cooler to play as Cassandra...

Posted by arnoldoaad

BOOOOOOO!!

We want Cass Cain!

Edited by evilvegeta74

I share this with everyone.

Posted by JLDoom

Well damn, this sucks.

Posted by BatWatch

BatWatch.net had this story five days ago. According to the same article that leaked Batgirl as the next character, Scorpion from Mortal Kombat and General Zod are the next two characters after Batgirl. Here is the story on BatWatch.

Blue Beetle Jamie Reyes would be perfect for this game, and he's not a Lantern, Batman, or Superman character. If there is any Superman character I'd like to see it would be Metallo. He just seems like he'd work.

Edited by Fantasgasmic

I was kinda hoping for Ocean Master. Like how GL and Sinestro are similar. It's a great trend in fighting games dating back to Ryu and Ken.

that, batwoman and cassandra cain.

Posted by ZombieMowlcher

I would also like plastic man.

Posted by BR_Havoc

Netherelm really dropped the ball on the DLC characters. I kind of wish I did not waste my cash on the season pass. Scorpion should not be in the game period, Zod is BORING he will just have the same move set as Superman and Batgirl is just unless we have Nightwing we got Batman that is enough of the Bat family that spot should of been Black Canary. As for Lobo that was a decent pick so there 1 of 4.

Posted by Black_Arrow

i hope that batgirl it is a skin for batman

Posted by RoTheKid

*Sigh*....so, I guess the rumors may be true. The next DLC characters will be Batgirl, General Zod, and Scorpion. I was looking forward to other characters such as Martian Manhunter, Black Canary, Blue Beetle, Static, or Swamp Thing. :(

@zombiemowlcher: They're not really apart of the DC world. That's like them putting a WoW character in there simply cause DC publishes their books.
