RUMOR – Aquaman, Black Adam, Shazam, Sinestro, and Ares to Appear in Injustice: Gods Among Us

While rumors regarding the cast of Injustice: Gods Among Us have been trickling out since the game was first announced, a recent article in the Australian edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine has unleashed a deluge of information. During an interview with Adam Urbano of NetherRealm Studios, they were given a sneak peek at a few of the game’s cinematics, which featured a number of new faces fighting alongside (and sometimes against) previously revealed characters like The Flash, Green Lantern, and Batman.¬†Aquaman, Black Adam, Shazam, Sinestro, and Ares are among those they saw, as well as Doomsday, whose face was recently spotted taking up valuable real estate on the game’s Battle Edition arcade stick.

Though they were seen in the game’s cutscenes, it still remains unclear as to whether they will be playable members of the cast or merely cameos in the extensive storyline. We’ve included photos of the OPM article below and transcripts of the juicy bits for those who would rather read them that way. No images or videos of these characters exist as of yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as news on their status in Injustice is revealed.

Let us know in the comments what you think of these developments and how you expect the characters to fit into the DC Comics fighter.

Let’s address the 6’1″, 325lb fish-man-shaped elephant in the room straight away. Aquaman is going to star in the next fighting game being made by Mortal Kombat¬†creators, Netherrealm [sic], alongside Batman, Superman, Cat Woman, Wonder Woman, and a clutch of other famous superheroes and villains from the DC stable.

However, it is arresting, strewn with characters from DC lore. The Flash shares a quip with the Green Arrow. Black Adam fights Shazam. Sinestro battles Green Lantern, and Doomsday fights Superman. We even see a flash of Ares. It’s a visual barrage, and their appearance doesn’t guarantee that they’re playable.
