Injustice: Gods Among Us is getting an animated adaptation but the announcement was stealthy and without marketing.
Injustice games each have over two hours of cutscenes, making them movies and fighting games fused into one. We are not talking just some random filler to get the players to keep fighting opponents, both games feature gripping stories of the calibre that DCEU movies can only wish they had.
It is for this reason that WB and DC Comics keep surprising fans with weird and illogical decisions, such as not announcing an animated adaptation of Injustice: Gods Among Us properly.
NetherRealm Studios did their job extremely well and set up the symbol of hope himself as the tyrannical villain for the series in a manner where his motives had more depth than the overused mind control gimmick.
On top of that, animated movies based on DC Comics have always been top-notch and coupled with the intricate plot of Injustice, this just looks like a match made in heaven.
As such, it's hard to fathom that the Injustice animated movie wasn't marketed yet but only announced in a bullet list of features, in a press release for Batman: The Long Halloween Part 2.
There is currently no release date but at least we know the adaptation is coming. If it lives up to half its potential, we are in for a treat.
