Xbox Achievements from Injustice 2 confirm The Joker will appear in the game

Injustice: Gods Among Us opened with The Joker detonating a bomb in Metropolis. Superman flew into a rage after learning that Lois Lane (and their unborn child) was killed in the blast… ultimately murdering The Joker and taking control of the world with the help of his Regime. Years later, The Joker from the original DC Universe was pulled into the Injustice universe and caused a bit of havoc, but he was sent back to where he came from at the conclusion of the story.

But you didn’t think The Joker was really dead, did you? According to Xbox Achievements, two Achievements in the upcoming Injustice 2 point to a resurrection for the Clown Prince of Crime:

I Love You, I Hate You (15)
Harley must defeat Joker with the final hit coming from Go Night Night

Why Aren’t You Laughing? (15)
Joker must defeat Batman with the final hit coming from Not So Funny Is It?

NetherRealm Studios will unveil another new character from Injustice 2’s roster this Friday, April 28, and there’s a chance it could be The Joker. But even if it’s not, we won’t have to wait much longer to find out if he’s in the game, because Injustice 2 will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.

Brainiac does his best Doctor Octopus impression in this new Injustice 2 trailer

After appearing in comic books for more than 50 years, and with a headlining role in 2004’s Spider-Man 2, Marvel’s Doctor Octopus and his metal tentacles are inseparable in the minds of most comics fans. But DC’s Brainiac will borrow the handy appendages for his appearance in Injustice 2:

Brainiac is a megalomaniacal genius who roams the universe, collecting knowledge to increase his intellectual and scientific prowess. Obsessed with establishing his superiority, Brainiac captured Krypton’s greatest cities, then eradicated what remained…or so he thought. Tales of the “Last Son of Krypton” have reached far into the stars. Now, the Collector of Worlds comes to Earth to finish his accumulation of Krypton — and discovers a new world worthy of his collection.

Set to serve as the final boss in Injustice 2, Brainiac was first spotted laying waste to Earth in last week’s “Shattered Alliances Part 5” trailer. His new “Introducing Brainiac” trailer, which includes almost two minutes of gameplay, has been embedded above.

NetherRealm Studios plans to reveal 11 more characters for Injustice 2, but they better hurry, the game will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.

Brainiac invades in Injustice 2’s “Shattered Alliances Part 5” trailer

The heroes are trying to pick up the pieces of a broken world as Injustice 2 opens, and we’ve gotten a glimpse of their progress thanks to NetherRealm’s “Shattered Alliances” series of trailers. But Part 5 takes things a step further with the introduction of Brainiac.

Brainiac will likely serve as the final boss to Injustice 2, and his goal for Earth is nothing less than total destruction… starting with Superman. Can the Man of Steel be redeemed? And will he be able to fight alongside Batman to protect the Earth? We’ll all find out together when Injustice 2 launches in less than a month (on May 16) for the PS4 and Xbox One.

Poison Ivy delivers the kiss of death in her Injustice 2 trailer

In a fun little nod to Batman & Robin, NetherRealm Studios pitted Poison Ivy against Bane and Robin in the newest Injustice 2 trailer.

Dr. Pamela Isley’s affinity for plants has always given her skin a healthy green glow, but the supervillain actually has a pair of extra appendages in the upcoming fighting game. The two venus fly traps that frame her face probably aren’t an angel and devil on her shoulders, but they can be used as a makeshift or to fling a noxious gas cloud at her opponent.

Injustice 2 will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16. And in case you missed any of the previous “Introducing…” trailers, now’s a great to look back at Scarecrow, The Flash, Captain Cold, Catwoman, Cheetah, Firestorm, Doctor Fate, and all the rest.

Scarecrow is frightening in the newest Injustice 2 trailer

In the various Batman comics and cartoons, The Scarecrow isn’t usually portrayed as an offensive powerhouse. Just look no further than the tasering he receives during the finale of Batman Begins. But NetherRealm Studios has different plans for the “Master of Fear,” which are on full display in the character’s “Introducing Scarecrow” trailer.

In Injustice 2, Scarecrow will become a hulking beast (in the eyes of his opponents) thanks to a dose from his Fear Toxin. And after his transformation, the character will deliver a stinging series of blows from his whip-like scythe. It’s going to take a lot more than a stun gun to drop this version of Dr. Jonathan Crane.

Injustice 2 will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.

The Flash shows off the greatest Super Move of all time in this Injustice 2 trailer

The Flash has reformed his evil ways after the events of Injustice: Gods Among Us, and he’s ready to jump back into the fray in the latest trailer for Injustice 2. The Flash continues to use his super speed to baffle opponents in NetherRealm’s sequel, but the Scarlet Speedster’s “Super Move” has to be seen to be believed.

As part of his “Super Move”, The Flash drags Gorilla Grodd into the Speed Force and first travels back to ancient Egypt to smash through the Sphinx, before also visiting a prehistoric park to use a Tyrannosaurus Rex as a battering ram. The superhero finishes by coming back to the present a few seconds before he left to throw Grodd INTO HIMSELF for the knockout.

The Society emerges as a threat to the Injustice 2 universe in “Shattered Alliances Part 4”

After Superman’s Regime came to power in Injustice: Gods Among Us, they managed to end all crime on Earth by executing any supervillain that fought back.

Naturally, this lead to some sore feelings, and now that the Man of Steel is in prison, the supervillain community has roared back in Injustice 2 as a terrorist organization known as “The Society.” Gorilla Grodd is leading Bane, Cheetah, Catwoman, Captain Cold, Deadshot, Scarecrow, and others against Batman’s forces, and it’s going to be a bloody confrontation.

You can learn all about Grodd’s machinations by viewing the “Shattered Alliances Part 4” trailer embedded above, and catch up with the rest of Injustice 2’s story in “Part 1,” “Part 2,” and “Part 3.”

Injustice 2 will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.
