Captain Marvel in 'Injustice: Gods Among Us'

Check out what the powerful hero looks like in the upcoming fighting game!

The game is still about two months away and there's a lot of spots left in the roster, but we can now say that Captain Marvel is definitely in the game! ComicBookMovie was able to get their hands on a picture taken directly from an issue of @Gamer magazine. According to them, Shazam is indeed a playable character!

Viners, what do you think of the costume? Additionally, what alternate costumes would you like to see for him?

Be sure to check out Billy Batson's Comic Vine bio for more information! Injustice: Gods Among Us will come out April 16th.

Update

Michael (MANofSHAZAM) sent this over to G-Man via Twitter:

This is a GameStop pre-order exclusive. Not sure when it was announced but it's pretty dang cool. Could this game get any better?

Isn't his name SHAZAM now?

Posted by G_Money_Christmas

His head looks tiny compared to his body. I think I'd prefer him without the hood but the rest looks awesome.

Posted by EnSabahNurX

Looks odd with the lightning bolt going into his belt O_O This design is meh, nothing great the other characters look better.

Posted by RedQueen

Called it! Have to say this costume doesn't differ too much from the New 52 design. Might be more armoured. Looks good :D

Am I the only one not liking the Injustice costumes?

Posted by ccraft

Too armory, they should have made it more smoother. But its not that bad.

Posted by JonSmith

I've liked the armored version of the other costumes, but I don't much care for this one. It just looks like someone cut off most of his skin and threw a white hood on him to me.

Bring in Black Atom, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter and I'm sold!!!

You know the earth has like, over 1000 people on it, or something close. Chances are SOMEONE else doesn't like the costumes.

not liking it but i guess this is netherrealm's way of making captain marvel not look like a palette swap of superman

The latest story trailer has a hint that Aquaman could be in it (there's a wall of water).

@Decoy Elite: Are you sure about that? I've never seen more than about 50 people at one time, and I extrapolated that as big as the earth is there is about 1000 total, give or take a couple. I think you better recheck your numbers.

Edited by iaconpoint

@Crackdown: It's SOOOO funny! *giggle* We'll let him figure it out.

Idk, I've always liked the name Captain Marvel but after the better part of 30 or 40 years of having a "Captain Marvel" in both DC and Marvel with Marvel owning the title rights, it makes sense that DC would finally make a change.

As for the outfit, he looks like the bastard love child of Superman and the Flash lol.

Depends on the character. A lot of them look fine, but Flash is just plain awful.

Yeah Flash's really is kinda off putting for me as well.

YES! Now I want black adam

Posted by Billy Batson

Bah, they kept the hood <_<

Posted by Smart_Dork_Dude

LOOKS AWESOME!!!!!!!!! Let's see Black Adam now!!! Also, YES!!! Finally I can have Superman VS Captain Marvel with moves that really would happen!! Seriously I can't wait to see what his moves are!!!

Posted by sentryman555

I'm not sure for alternate outfits for him. His new 52 costume is pretty much the same without all the lines. I would like to see the outfit when he became the new wizard. The completely white one and the blue one that freddy uses.

Posted by Cafeterialoca

@sho3s22: Wouldn't he play the same as Captain Marvel?

Posted by Kneepawn

He looks like a cyborg now with all that electricity under his padding lol

Edited by natewhite192

i think the suit looks good, but i am not a fan of the hood

Posted by dreamfall31

Is BIlly in the Assassins Guild now??

Posted by zachkastner

YEEEEES. Captain Marvel! The BIG RED CHEESE.

(Even if he all hooded and New 52-like) I'm just happy to see him!

I do hope he's labelled as "Captain Marvel" in game, though that is probably never going to happen.

Posted by Vaeternus

He looks awesome!

Posted by WilliamJBatson

AWESOME! My costume looks absolutely epic! :) Well chuffed.

Posted by SmashBrawler

Fantastic. Looks like every DC character from MK vs DC is in now (well, except for Darkseid that is).

Posted by Mutant God

Alternate costume? Mary Marvel lol

Posted by SadiaVicious

He looks awesome, thank God isn't another Batman character in this game.

Posted by Or35ti

I'd like to see it in action before i judge. Right now it looks only ok. Not horrible but not great either. I think they should take it easy on all of the armor for some of the characters if it clearly doesn't work as well.

Posted by ccraft

@Decoy Elite: yes, yes you are :)

That's exactly who my mind went to ..and then I was like, no....it's DC.

Posted by ccraft

@evilvegeta74: I keep hearing that Hawkman won't be in the game, because one of the creators said no or something. I've seen his tweets he doesnt want him in the game. I also forgot the dudes name.

Posted by stu

woo hooo! i was waiting for that!

Posted by MB25

Another day 1 purchase for me

Posted by batman_begins

Goodness, rounding up the rest of the MK vs DC cast I see, We better have Black Adam in there too! C'mon, Aquaman would be perfect as these armored look would go well with Atlantean scaly body armor! Black Manta needs to be here as well as Sinestro! One character I don't think anyone's mentioned is Dr.Fate. With all the fantasy element in Injustice, it'll be nice to see Fate in action.

That is not cool man.

Personally I don't like the hood thing it works for Black Adam because Egypt use hooded wear where as Shazam/Captain Marvel is more Greek and often reminds me of Hercules (I know his strength is a power of shazam) so it would make sense he wouldn't wear a hood.

Posted by corpsecraft

This costume looks... wrong. I really like the n52 costume, but they made a buncha small changes to it and it all falls apart. The suit looks like he has no skin, the lightning bolt attaches at his neck and belt, and the hood looks too tight (compare it to the bust: http://www.toymania.com/newspics/0812_dcc_shazam.jpg).

Posted by Gambit1024

Yes! He better have his signature grappling movie, though.

Also, I kind of dig the costume, but the hood isn't doing it for me.

Posted by Loki9876

isn't it Shazam now?
