The Injustice games from Netherrealm became one of the biggest DC games of its time, and in fact, has become one of the best-known fighting games. It was quite a change of pace to have a game where everyone's favorite superheroes are violently brawling it out.

That's what happens when the Joker kills Lois Lane and turns Superman into a dictating tyrant in order to protect the world in a way he wasn't able to for Lois. The story captivated everyone who played it and became one of the more famous recent DC Comics storylines.

In fact, a critically acclaimed comic series even spun out of the game franchise, which explored events that happened before the first game and in between it and the sequel. The comic series shined a light on corners of the mythology which never made it into the game—not to mention the brutality that went even further than the game could.

Well, Warner Bros. has seen fit to adapt the storyline into one of its animated DC films. While a trailer has already been released for the project, a new red band teaser has now been unveiled, teasing some of the intensity in store for fans.

As viewers can see, Injustice isn't the average DC Comics story. It is, however, reminiscent of recent storylines in the DCEU.

Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman, besides being an adaptation of The Dark Knight Returns comic line, bears a lot of the same sentiment; Batman fears Superman's potential to break and become an unstoppable force.

Synder's plans for the future were even closer to Injustice, with Superman bending his will to Darkseid after the loss of Lois Lane. This led to the many nightmare glimpses that fans got throughout the films including the more recent Zack Snyder's Justice League.

While those ideas will never come to passInjustice is a done deal, and fans will be able to watch it when it releases on October 19, 2021.
