If you are a comic book or a superhero fan, you’re absolutely gonna love this piece of news. As everyone knows by now, Suicide Squad is the movie of the summer, or maybe even of the year, whichever way you choose to look at it. It was a huge box office success and probably grossed in the biggest amount of money ever generated by ticket pre-ordering. Even though most of the critics gave it bad reviews, let us rephrase, the baddest reviews given to a movie in a long, long time, the comic book community loved it and embraced it with open arms. Hell, they loved it so much they made a petition, signed by a ridiculously large amount of fans, to shut down Rotten Tomatoes (if you can believe that) because of the brutal reviews the site gave their beloved movie. If you think about it, the fans do have a point. I mean, isn’t the movie made purposely for them? Who cares if a movie critic doesn’t like it, or if the movie isn’t Oscar material?!
Suicide Squad’s success rests mostly on one character it had, or maybe two. There is no doubt that Harley Quinn, a former psychiatrist by the real name of Harleen Frances Quinzel, stole the show with her crazy personality, funny lines and. of course, good looks. Margot Robbie’s performance surely had something to do with it as well, as she really got into character and will probably be remembered for this role for a long time. The other character loved by the fans was Deadshot, played by global superstar Will Smith.
To get to the point, if you love all this comic book, superhero, video game hype, you’ll be pleased to know that these 2 characters, Harley Quinn and Deadshot will be the stars on Injustice 2, as we can clearly see in the trailer that has just been made public by Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment. The 2 characters have previously made brief appearances in Injustice: Gods Among Us, but their personalities and flashy looks weren’t this good or well emphasized.
Injustice 2’s roster is fully packed with high profile superheroes like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman or The Flash, but given the success of Suicide Squad, brought mostly by Harley Quinn and Deadshot, these 2 super villains are set to shine and steal the spotlight from the old heroes. We’ve learned that Harley Quinn will have her notorious baseball bat and her hammer, plus 2 pistols. If you’ll choose her character in the game, you will also be assisted by 2 dogs that will help you in combat. She will have a varied wardrobe as well, gathered from her previous appearances in comic books, games and, of course, cartoons and movies. In the same trailer, we can also see Deadshot beating the living crap out of Batman, so you know these 2 anti heroes will be the heart and soul of the upcoming game.
The developers have not made any statement regarding a release date thus far, but it is rumored that Injustice 2 will be coming out sometime around March of next year. Are you hyped, or what?
