Green Arrow Confirmed for 'Injustice: Gods Among Us'

The Emerald Archer has joined the ranks of the upcoming DC fighting game.

We've been waiting for another character announcement for 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' and it's finally happened. Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive first look at Green Arrow in the game.

It makes sense that he'd be announced now as the new CW show Arrow debuts tomorrow night.

Injustice will be available in April 2013 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii U. We'll catch up with Warner Bros. Interactive this week at New York Comic Con to see if we can dig up any further information.

There is a non-embeddable video over at EW.com. Head over there to check out the gameplay. We'll post it here onsite when it becomes available.

This is awesome and so excited, but they could always release more than one character at a time.

OLLIEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

this looks good....it's too bad that I don't like fighting games

Posted by ccraft

Awesome, the suit looks cool, but I hope they make alternate costumes, maybe some Elseworlds costumes. Definitely New 52! I hope the next reveal is Green Lantern

Posted by Doctor!!!!!

Ollie get rid of that dopey beard... Or grow a full on Grizzly Adams beard.

Posted by MASFUEG0

yea thats not new 52 as I hoped but, I really enjoy this version more at times. Plus that bow with the dagger is sick!

Posted by cyberchop979

Bad. A$$$$$$$$$$.

Posted by EvanTheMexiJew

Hell sí! Can't wait to play this game. Even if its bad, at least it can't be as bad as any Marvel's games :-p

Posted by zachkastner

Yeeeessss, and his beard rules. This is my favorite Injustice design, it walks the line between new and old very well.

Great choice for the game!

I hope we see more announcments for the game soon.

Also, can't wait for Arrow!

Posted by sweetesttoaster

That's a cool redesign. Better than the New 52 one. So pumped for this game.

While he is definitively using different arrows in the game play footage, Im hoping he is more a speed character relying on his speed and agility than a gadget character firing different trick arrows. I think i would be a cooler take on the character too.

So far i think the speed characters has the smallest pool to pull from. The only definite speed character is the Flash. Im speculating Nightwing is speed character with his agility and motorcycle and Cheetah would probably be a speed character if she is included as a playable character.

I really like this look

Edited by xtremekidx

this ollie is better than anything i have seen in a while!the perfect beard,maturity and the green doesnt look too much!BW,that dagger on the bow is beyond cool!

Posted by Nerd Of A Hero

Not a fan of the character but this is exciting and they finally give him a shot. God, his costume looks bad@$$, sorta reminds me of Scorpion a bit.

Posted by TDK_1997

That's the way Green Arrow should look like and this is definitely my player.

Posted by Cavemold

Sweet. Looks great why can't the comic copy this ?

Posted by zackattack529

With the addition of green arrow i ask now...why are they keeping (green lantern(any) so secret and under the radar? i mean like he's a huge part of the justice league a very famous character, we know that one of the human green lanterns will be in the game but what's so special about the in-game character that the developers are hesitating to show us? is he too OP. because if that's the case superman shouldn't be here either.

Posted by Strafe Prower

Nice costume design!

I would have liked someone else to be on the game though :/

Posted by JamDamage

This was unexpected til I realized he has his own show. Makes sense. We all know Green Lantern will get a character, I'm guessing Deathstroke should be in here, but I wonder if Captain Marvel will left out. No way every character from DC vs MK is making the cut. Joker will get one too. How could they out Harley in and leave the Joker out. Actually I wish they left Harley out. To many better characters to have Harley in there. I think Blue Beetle would make a good character, but I doubt he's there either. As for DLC characters, I'm going to guess another G.L. will make the cut. Guy, or John Stewart as another minority character. A Green Lantern pack could be cool. St. Walker, Larfleeze, Sinestro, Atrocitus, Star Saphire.

Posted by SaintOfKillers

looks great. Tomorrow they're going to reveal 2 more characters, one is the joker but i'm not sure about the other one

Edited by SaintOfKillers

The second character is probably Hal Jordan

Posted by GR2Blackout

WOOOOOOO!

Please confirm Deathstroke and Bane next.... PLEASE!!!

Posted by JonSmith

Wow! Link buffed UP!

Posted by evilvegeta74

Ok, now where is Marvel and Aquaman!

Posted by NightFang

Cool, but they couldn't have gone for a better design.

Like the costume but I REALLY wish they wouldve dropped the beard.

Posted by JordanDrake

Does it look like he's wearing a big green diaper to anyone else?

Really? I always loved the beard look....though the beard looks a little robin hoodish in the picture...

Considering Hawkeye was in UMvC3 they are going to have to find a way to make GA's playstyle fresh, to which I wish them good luck.

Posted by thedrudo

Love Ollie but I hate that costume.

He's got a knife on his bow for starters ...  Plus this is an evil alt. universe.
