Injustice is an animated movie inspired by Netherrealm Studios’ fighting game and the DC comic series from Tom Taylor called Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, and DC, the upcoming animated tale will transport fans to an alternate Earth where Joker turned Superman’s inside out.
Announced via The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming animated film takes place in a world where the Joker tricked Superman into murdering his beloved Lois Lane. We know how this story plays out: Superman goes berserk and aims to control Earth in its entirety while deep within his spiral. Can Batman and company stop him before it’s too late?
