New 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' Video Reveals Lex Luthor and Story Details

Check out Lex Luthor's special moves!

The DC fighting game by NetherRealm Studios is almost here and I'm ridiculously excited. Every little bit of info they throw our way right now is something to get giddy about. The lucky folks over at CVG got their hands on an exclusive new video. The sweet cinematic reveals more about the story (who's on which side and why) and reveals some of Lex Luthor's attacks!

Enjoy keeping this one on loop for the next hour or so.

As you might recall, Lex Luthor and Bane were previously announced via a magazine. While I'd love to see a video of Bane in action, I'd prefer a new reveal or two instead! If you're excited for the game, don't forget to check out the prequel digital comic every Tuesday!

'Injustice: Gods Among Us' will come out April 19th and, if you have the cash, there's a fairly awesome Battle Edition and Collector's Edition available.

Yay! Batman is Kevin Conroy and Superman is Tim Daily!

Nay! Joker is not Mark Hamill and Lex isn't Clancy Brown (but if that is Michael Ironside like I think it is then....SQUUEEEE! Even though he would make a better Darkseid....)

@SHARKBEARAGATOR said:

Aw man no Clancy Brown :(

I feel you man! Come in for a hug...

Superman's voice sounds off and the Joker isn't Mark Hamill... Still looks good though.

Probably going to have to wait until a price drop for this one.

That's definitely Tim Daly as Superman though. Mark Hamill retired from doing the Joker. No one thought he was serious, but I guess he's staying true to his word. :(

it's George Newbern And not Tim Daily sadly.

Yeah, Gregg! I have to agree with you! I would love to see more reveals as well! However, I'm still excited about this game! Can't wait until it comes out! :)

Really? Wow. Well at least he does a good enough job to sound just like him. He had me fooled.

I also would've preferred Nathan Fillion as Hal Jordan instead of Josh Keaton (he does a pretty good Hal on the Cartoon Network show though.) I just associate his voice with Spider-Man more.

Why is that so hard to believe? I've never known IMDB to be wrong. They are a very reliable website and their cast lists are pretty much as official as they get. All the other characters are credited correctly. Also, why is Charlie Schlatter voicing Flash evidence of their lack of credibility? He's played Flash before (in The Batman TV show, and in Lego Batman 2.)

Imdb has never been right any time ive gone there pre-game movie launch unless the character's voices have already been announced. besides Flash's voice is displayed in the trailer and its clearly isnt Charlie Schlatter.

Susan Eisenberg, George Newburn, Kevin Conroy! Perfect Trinity. Childhood, welcome back.

Really!? That's never been my experience.

Well I guess I wouldn't know because I don't actually know what he sounds like. I've only heard him on Lego Batman 2 and I can't remember what his Flash sounded like.

EDIT: After hearing Charlie as Flash on youtube and re-watching the reveal trailer. I guess you're right. Flash sounds more like Nolan North (which is who I thought it was immediately upon hearing it.) I guess I put a little too much faith in IMDB. Josh Keaton could still be GL though...

Agreed, with this whole "superman is evil" crap i already know the story wont be good (or at least enoyjable for me) but at least the game looks cool

@JakeN7: Hugs "I just miss him so much, he was perfect."

It's just not the same when Mark Hamil is not doing the voice of the Joker.

Posted by Mega_spidey01

its only worthy of a rent for me.

Posted by thebluedragon07

Hmm it looks like Batman is working along side with Lex Luthor.

Not a bad portrayal I say!

It seems that it's another story of Superman going bad? How about one where Batman goes bad.

Can't really do that I mean how many heroes could easily kill Batman if he went nuts? hundreds DC just wants to keep pushing that Batman is now there star player so how to so we show that in this have him go against the evil Shao Khan ......I mean Superman.

Well since the game finds ways for them to be able to fight that wouldn't be a problem here. As for comics they could easily do a story where he went bad and people didn't find out until after he acted to take measures.

Oh I agree with you its just DC will not do that. Its clear that the DCU is now focused on Batman not Superman like how its supposed to be IMO

So the "bad guys" are Supes, WW, and Flash.

Ignore the plot. NetherRealm Studios isn't known for making good or logical stories. They do however make awesome fighting games.

The new Mortal Kombat game would like to have a word with you.

Uh.... does it matter? Superman wont ever turn evil, lois lane was killed by the joker (hmm sounds familiar) in kingdom come and i didnt see superman dominating the world in that story
