Injustice 2 story trailer introduces Brainiac as Batman's new foe

And he still needs to watch out for Dictator Superman as well.


Injustice 2 will pick up where Injustice: Gods Among Us left off, With batman and Superman still squaring off against each other. Both are in need of new allies, as the war of attrition has taken its toll, so developer NetherRealm Studios is adding a new character to the mix.

Enter Brainiac.

"Brainiac possesses superior intelligence, impossibly advanced technology, and inexhaustible resources," Dominic Ciancolo, cinematic director on Injustice 2 for NetherRealm, said in a blog post. "The overwhelming threat he poses to Earth forces Batman to question everything he knows. It also makes him consider crossing lines he’d vowed to never cross."

Ciancolo said that the team wanted to move the story forward without repeating the previous narrative. They had a lot of fun developing the characters in the first game and wanted to do the same in the sequel. The new threat will test both Batman and Superman, even in their adversarial relationship, he said.

Injustice 2 comes out on May 16 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

      That doesn't even make sense, Brainiac would obliterate Batman, even super strength Batman. Why do they keep doing this?

        comic book logic says brainiac would never obliterate batman.

      Don't forget, Batman got hit by Darkseid's Omega Beam and instead of dying, he traveled back through time!

      Injustice 2 looks so good and insane, NetherRealm makes the best fighters. FOTY 2017 no question.

      Fuck, this shit always looks so cool but I'm not really into fighters. Don't like em really at all. I wish they made more super hero games other than fighters and lego games. :(
