Batman Vs. Robin: Dawn of Injustice 2
Gamers all over the world are buzzing after the release of the Injustice 2 trailer. The next adaptation of this Elseworlds version of our favorite heroes from DC Comics promises to turn an already-bizarre world on its head. If you need further explanation, check out this new trailer that features Batman versus the Boy Wonder himself, Robin.
It’s pretty easy to deduce that this is Damian Wayne, the son of Bruce and Talia al Ghul. What’s unclear is why he’s returned to the role of Robin after the events of Injustice: Gods Among Us. (I won’t spoil what happens in case some of you haven’t played the game and want to catch up!) It doesn’t appear that he and his father have repaired their relationship at all. We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but it’s been a pretty interesting plot line to follow for fans of the Gotham universe.
Unofficial Synopsis (via the Injustice 2 Wikipedia page)
Injustice 2 continues the storyline established in Injustice: Gods Among Us. According to Cinematic Director Dominic Cianciolo, the story from the first installment provided a solid foundation for adapting the canonical histories of the game’s newer cast, allowing the writers to fit their stories within the Injustice universe. The biggest challenge presented to the writers was extending the series’ narrative without repeating the core Batman versus Superman conflict. This led to the inclusion of Brainiac as the game’s central antagonist, as there were few characters in the DC Universe that could top “Dictator Superman” as a foe for Batman.
Injustice 2 will be released on May 16th, 2017 for both Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.
