Alright, I definitely think 1:47 is Batman wearing a yellow ring.

I agree but also think that it might just be the aftermath of the fight between Bats and Hal, because at 1:36 you can see Hal confronting Bats as a yellow ring bearer.

Absolutely. He defeats Hal and then takes the ring for himself (or it chooses him).  That's going to be awesome if that's the case.

My guess is that most of the heroes go "bad" except batman. Then of course Batman needs to knock some sense into each hero to bring them back to sanity. So basically this over and over again. Game of the YEAR!!

Actually the dude in yellow is most likely DS. 
Look at his armor in the gameplay vid and you can see there's just enough yellow for it to be him.

No i think Hal defeats him,and takes his suit,but not in that fight,i think the scene with the cowl on the table is from a earlier part of the story.Because Bat's is wearing a different suit when they confront each other at 1:36.The suit looks more improvised,with military armor parts instead of what we've seen so far.Try going frame by frame on that part and tell me that i might not be right.

Also,Joker trying to stab Harley at 1:54,who's side is he on anyway? Can't be Superman's,but Harley on team bats,confusing confusing confusing.

Hawkwoman is all I have to say awesome

I don't need to go frame by frame to tell you that you "might" not be right.  Unless you're working on the game and can tell us for certain, then yes, you might not be right ;) 
 
The costume certainly does look modified when he confronts Hal (most notable in the arms and shoulders), but later we only see the cowl (which appears the same) and belt (which appears the same and can be seen in the final frame when he walks at Hal).  There's extra pouches on the side when he confronts Hal, but that's a very minor detail difference and could even have been placed over the belt. 
 
You might not be right.  I might not be right.  We won't know for sure until we play it. For now, the thought of a maskless Batman with a yellow ring taking on Superman is awesome, so in the meantime, I'm a happy camper hoping that happens.

  1. How do you know he's a ruthless dictator?
  2. Similarities, sure, but they've said this game will have "33%" more cutscenes than MK9's story -- and as I'm sure you know, that was an extensive story. We barely know anything about what happens yet.
  3. The combination of the fear gas and the kryponite was obviously overwhelming and that took over.

Well lets see first you have the crust the flags and the throne pretty sure they took that from famous dictators like Hitler so right there off to a bad start if you want him not to be a ruthless dictator.

The MK9 story was pretty good up till the end were they kind of messed up to set it up for the sequel I mean does Ed Boon really think that people will care about MK10 if the only returning characters will be Sonya,Johnny and Raiden? I doubt it people want to play there favorites and many of the new characters they have introduced over the years were one and done characters. So I do see your point but still I have to see some glimmers of hope to buy it. I do not want to play threw a story that is only dark and depressing.

I guess you are right but if that is true how pathetic does that make Batman for just letting Joker go to Arkham so many times? he could of stopped everything before it happens guess that will be touched on?

MK9 story was epic, and it's already going to have a sequel MK10 will cover MK4, MK DA, MKD and possibly MKA's storyline...only thing is Boon said and hinted at "new characters" so I'm pumped for that, but I do believe they have to resurrect Sub-Zero have the Elder Gods resurrect him some how or have a new Sub-Zero all together, you can't have an MK without Sub-Zero.

But Injustice looks even more epic, telling you when it comes to storylines in fighters nobody does it better then NRS/MK team...compared to Tekken, SF, etc there's simply no comparison overall.

Ummm,yeah sorry after reading that that makes me sounds douchy.Sorry about that,it just seems very likely to me that might be the outcome,taking away the suit risks his secret identity being revealed to the world,because the suit i was mentioning looks a lot more improvised(even though he has the same cowl and maybe belt...don't know how many of those he has lying around)than his usual injustice batsuit.About the belt and cowl,i was trying to say that i think that's Hal taking those from batman,maybe as a trophy,but who really knows,none of us,yet.Also Nightwing on team Superman? Fighting Green Arrow,who's most definitely(or most likely) on team Batman.Can't wait to make Nightwing Beat Bat's down!

The story was pretty good in MK 9 but I did think the ending was lack luster. You have to resurrect the majority of the characters that died in MK 9. They have tried to do games before without Liu Kang and they never were as big as this one or the previous installments. The way I believe it will happen is Shannok will have an army of the dead warriors and by the end they will be brought back to life.

I liked it, I just hate the cliffhanger endings(but that's how games are lol) they're not like comics where they're weekly or monthly.

That's one interesting theory, mine is since the Elder Gods are God more or less of MKU, and can do anything I'm guessing Raiden will ask them to resurrect certain people but honestly I can live if they keep some people dead. I just hope Sub-Zero comes back and Ermac(Ermac didn't die and should be good now that Kahn is dead) Sonya, Cage, Raiden, Scorpion, QC, Shinnok have to come back. I suspect some 3d MK guys like Dairou, Hotaru, Havik etc will show up plus some new characters all together.

But I can see Shinnok since he's the power of Netherrealm to use those souls to his advantage then perhaps Ermac and Raiden can free their souls or something(like Ermac did in Deception with their souls freeing them from Onaga's control) while freeing Liu Kang's Spirit too...

I could see Ermac being the main character for the first few chapters of the game. I do see him being key to freeing the heroes for lack of a better word souls.I could see that being one of the larger parts of MK 10s story.

We will see some of the 3d characters but I really do not know which ones many were not well received my guess is there will be Bo rai Cho, Havik would make sense if it takes place in the netherrelm but characters like Darrius and Kobra should never be seen again lol. There are many characters they need to have back like Kitana, Jade, Liu, Kung and the list goes on.

Well I love fighting games and I REALLY love DC so this is definitely a day one purchase for me. The only problem is the costumes are ATROCIOUS! They're far too bulky and just look very blech. Here's hoping for some more classic looking alternate costumes.

EDIT: anyone else notice that Hal is wearing a yellow ring at 1:36? That's definitely the sinestro corps emblem on his chest.

Posted by knightofthechronicle

This looks great, the only problem I have with this is the fact that the animation could be better, you know more along the lines of the Arkham games.

1.36 is Batman opposite Hal Jordan who's got a yellow ring, you can tell by the symbol on his chest. I haven't read the comments so I don't know if that's been pointed out yet...

I hate the Joker for trying to steal so much limelight, but this story might actually be worth something. I know the gameplay is going to rock, that's a given really.

You know, there's a point where you should just kill a man Batman.

And that point is when the Joker detonates a nuke cause he thinks it'll be funny.

Seriously Batman, the f*** is wrong with you?

There's nothing wrong about wanting to preserve life. Neither Superman nor Batman, out of the circumstances of this game would even consider it and it's far better to strive to the preservation of life rather than showing how killing is wrong. Besides you miss out the incapacitation or crippling arguments. And Joker is as unpredictable as hell so not even Batman can guess what he's going to do.

Which is true, but here's the thing that bugs me the worst in comics.

These serial killers' lives are worth more than soldiers. Any time a war scenario happens, heroes just go out and kill as many soldiers as possible, which is hypocritical cause they usually have lives worth living. So why is it that psychos who kill for fun keep living? (This might be directed more at Marvel).

Still, if Joker sets off a nuke? He deserves death. No question.

What I meant is a real reason as to why Superman is some kind of dictator, because killing Lois and their unborn son, and destroying Metropolis, aren't very good reasons for making Superman some tyrant, even if those are terrible things to endure. Even if this story has all kind of cool characters, epic moments and clever cameos, that won't win me over if the price is the utter destruction of one of my favorite characters.

And I didn't think MK9's story was that good, it was pretty entertaining, but I didn't really care about any of the characters.

@SmashBrawler: Well, I guess we'll just have to wait and see how Superman is really handled in the game and as digital comic continues. 
 
HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT? FIGHTING JOHNNY CAGE BECAUSE HE HIT ON SONYA WAS BRILLIANT, SIR! 
 
Let me clarify: I thought it was an impressive story for a fighting game.

how do we know he is a evil dictator like kim jong il. Could it be that he took over control because he wants and truely believes its the best for the people? Also, all those countless others agreeing with his stand like Wonder Woman, Flash and GL and etc are they also being utterly destroyed? Theres always 2 sides to the story and I think its better if we judge them only when the story is out.

After all, didn't Supes already did that in Kingdom Come.

Alas, how do we know the rebels team is the one that is right? Akin to Civil War, can we really say that one party is the wrong one and the other is the right one?

Its really just a fighting game and the story is for the heroes and villains to fight each other.

Let me clarify: I thought it was an impressive story for a fighting game.

Heh, I actually wasn't thinking of those fights that came out of nowhere when I wrote that. What was the deal with those anyway?

And well, when the other plots are stuff like "OHMYGOD GALACTUS IS GOING TO DESTROY EVERYTHING TEAM UP AND STAHP HIM GUYZ!!!1!!1" it's not very hard to top that :P

Well, I guess we'll just have to wait and see how Superman is really handled in the game and as digital comic continues.

I hate, HATE being part of the guys that judge something before it's out but I can't help but think any other possibility other than "Superman is angry so he takes over the world" is just wishful thinking.

@sethysquare: No, Superman didn't have his own army in Kingdom Come and he didn't take over the world. Completely different stuff.

Posted by Nightflash

I honestly dont think its sinestro because I just dont think he fits in the story and the guys at netherrealms said in an interview they had to cut some characters because they were to similar to others. For example they said proffesor zoom is not in the game because he is too similar to flash and same could apply for sinestro.

Posted by MidApollo

Why do people consider that if Supes does this whole regime thing than he is an evil tyrant!! I mean it is personal i think - he thinks he is right and he does what he believes in. I would definitely join his side... I don't think that there is an evil side and good side.. it's more difference of opinions between Batman and Superman that causes this "war" tbh

Just when I thought this game couldn't look any cooler, I heard the music from this trailer.
