All the way back in 2013 NetherRealm Studios and Tom Taylor brought the DC Universe into its ultimate clash, the Injustice storyline. The game was released alongside a comic, written by Taylor. With over 150 issues it was a mega-hit, bringing Batman and Superman head to head and splitting the DC Universe down the middle. The franchise would go onto score a second game as well as yet another comic that would run for another over 70 issues continuing the story from the first game.
A while ago it was announced that an Injustice animated adaption would be coming from WB Animation, DC, and WB Home Entertainment. The film would bring to life the best-selling first installment in the franchise, showing us the murder of Lois Lane and the fall from grace for Superman, as the Regime and Insurgency form.
