This week the 'Battle Arena' placed Sinestro against Superman and Hawkgirl against Green Arrow. Just like every other week, the bracket is determined by your votes. Voting closed yesterday and today they've released a gameplay video for both battles. Check 'em out to see who wins as well as get an extensive look at the special moves for each character! You'll also spot a cameo from Atom Smasher, Giganta and Darkseid!

What do you think of Sinestro and Hawkgirl now that we've seem more of them? Also, do you agree with the outcome for these two fights? Injustice: Gods Among Us comes out April 16th.

Looks awesome. Yet two more solid reasons to invest in this already-promising game.

I like Hawkgirl. Sinestro... not so much.

#7 Posted by BlueLantern1995 (2881 posts) - - Show Bio

I knew Sinestro would lose but I wish he won. I like Hawkgirl's gameplay and Sinestro's for that matter. Now Green Arrow's winning was really ridiculous.

That was definitely Darkseid, not Mongul.

@k4tzm4n: It also looks like Doomsday is present for the Sinestro/ Superman fight

Was that Tim Curry as Sinestro?

@The Average Bear: Yup, though I didn't include that info because we've seen the stage and his presence before.

Yep. I'd recognize her voice anywhere.

Green Arrow had no business beating Hawkgirl. Wow, just wow. Fan voting is horrible, we've known that since the 90s DC Marvel crossover. Lex loses to the Joker, and now this travesty. And of course Bats will beat WONDER WOMAN, and the Joker will probably BEAT THE FLASH! I dont think I can contain my nerd rage if that happens. Really, based on the brackets they set up, the final match should have been Superman v Flash, and I cant say who should win that, whoever has the fight on there terms (ie. Flash has to go to Supes or Vice Versa).

But, on a lighter note, knocking an opponent through a Boom Tube to Apokolips?! And then said opponent getting thrashed and Omega Effect'd by him?! That is ridiculous, inane fun. I love the level of interactivity, the fan service, the Super Attacks, and the speed and visceral feeling in the combat.

Batman fights Superman and wins the tournament. There, I just saved you the trouble of watching 7 more videos.

I have to agree, this game is ridiculously over-the-top and I love it for that.

Sounds like Cam Clarke doing Sinestro's voice and Jennifer Hale as Hawkgirl. These super moves seem kind of unimpressive. I think some of them could have been a bit more creative than they look. My excitement for this game has already peaked and these videos are just icing on the cake.

Green Arrow celebrating a win next to a bust of Orion while Atom Smasher slugs it out in the background?

YESSSSSSSS! YESSSSSSSS! This game is the greatest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Other people may have already noticed them, but if you look in the background of the Green Arrow and Hawkgirl video at 2:11, you can clearly see a few JSA members.... Starman, Dr. Mid-Nite (I think), Sandman and Dr. Fate (or at least their costumes). Taking this into consideration, and given that Atom Smasher is fighting in the background, I wonder if the JSA (or their descendants) will play a role in the story....  

We know that the Fourth World will play a role in one form or another, but on the pillars at 1:03, there are statues of Mr. Miracle and Big Barda and at 0:28, there is a giant bust of Orion. Of course, you can't really miss the Darkseid appearance.... 

I know that there are plenty more characters and statues, but most (if not, all) of them have been confirmed or referenced in one way or another, as far as I'm aware. 
 
EDIT: Stargirl at 0:34

My only disappointment is that it looks like Darkseid won't be a playable character since he's a stage hazard.

That final fight was BS. As soon as Hawkgirl smashed Ollie in the face with her mace, that would have ended the fight. Ollie over Hawkgirl? The people who voted that were plain nuts.

The Green Arrow/Hawkgirl fight had probably one of the coolest interactive environments I've ever seen in a game. Who was that robot standing there in the beginning?

Just saw Darkseid! Awesome, even if that means he isn't playable!

Not a fan of DC Comics, but I am definitely getting this game. Now, if they only can hurry up and make the MK sequel.

The whole thing is gonna be BS. It's been a popularity competition from day one. Either way it's a fighting game with smoothed out power levels and any of these characters could potentially wreck any opposing character on the roster. One could brainstorm for 5 minutes and figure out a way for Harley Quinn to beat Superman because that's just comics.

No problem. At first i didnt notice mostly because i wanted darkseid to be playable, even as a secret character

Makes me wonder if theres gonna be any secret characters in this game tho

Well, I bet that there will be some DLC characters.

#41 Posted by Stormbox (2001 posts) - - Show Bio

@mk111: Well yea, but i meant unlockable characters

A lot of people are worried their favorites wont be in the game but they havent considered that they may be secret

Although judging from the last game the only secret character will probably be cyborg batman or zombie joker

Loving Sinestro and Hawkgirl. I think I know who I am picking up first.

The highlight of this fight for me in the map. It look so great and so imposing with all the statues. The guys who designed this level did an outstanding job. My favorite by far.

Pretttttty much all of this. Lex losing to Joker? Arrow beating Hawkgirl? Flash beating Shazam? Okay - and I'm Goldilocks.
