UPDATE – An Ed Boon tweet from earlier tonight has revealed that the next downloadable character will be revealed tomorrow, so stay tuned! Below, you’ll find the tweet in question as well as a couple more hints that he’s provided about this upcoming fighter.

 

NetherRealm Studios founder Ed Boon recently tweeted a teaser regarding the next downloadable character for Injustice: Gods Among Us. His message shows a Youtube video with music from William’s 1990 pinball game Funhouse.

Who this DLC character is will be revealed this week with a gameplay video. Until then, feel free to speculate on who it is in the comments.

    the spirit?

  • theSN3S

    I have a feeling I might not like this….

  • RomanceHD

    The motherfucking Toyman!

    • SavingPrincess

      Actually it’s the motherfucking Zatanna

  • Earl Grey Summers

    Ed Boon is the voice of Scorpion from Mortal Kombat… AND Rudy from Funhouse Pinball. And since Scorpion is already revealed… I hope everyone likes Chucky doll-looking puppets :-

    It’s one of 5 chars:
    1) Midnight: in video at around 7:00 that’s the theme played. (Would buy him)
    2) Beast boy: (says Wild Boy at mid left). (Would buy him)
    3) Toyman: (pretty obvious one). (Would return my CD)
    4) Plastic man: (that’s what a toy man is). (Would buy him)
    5) Phantom Stranger: (Cryptic vanilla Ed Boon message based on (1)). (Would buy him)

    • a real ghost

      plastic man after martian manhunter (considering his trait) would be a bit… strange.

      • Martini Whoelse

        His trait could be different.
        Even with the same trait, if he has different normals that changes things.

  • Gabriel Larkins

    Pinball –> Pinball Wizard –> Magician –> Zatanna.

    You heard it here first, folks.

  • d3v

    Personally, I’m hoping they do the Ventriloquist. There’s one character archetype that NRS hasn’t done yet which is the character that controls a sub-character.

    That said, it’s probably Toyman.

    • SavingPrincess

      It’s Zatanna

      Clue 1: this video tweeted out by Ed Boon: http://t.co/zLE1822BPb

      Clue 2: “Olivia Newton John”

      Clue 3: “I heat up, I can’t cool down”

      Clue 1 is a video for the soundtrack to “Pinball Wizard” which was released in 1990

      Clue 2 if you Google “Olivia Newton John” and “1990” the top results are performances for her song “Magic”

      Clue 3 are lyrics from the Steve Miller Band song “Abracadabra”

      Wizard, Magic, Abracadabra
      Zatanna

  • Trevor Clarke

    Yooooooo are we forreal about to see Toyman though?

    I’m hype

  • Joe’SoopaMan’Walker

    Toyman

  • Andrew Becerra

    In an interview with Kristyn mass (voice of Zatanna in that) she says her favorite game is pinball “Funhouse”!

    • Andrew Becerra

      her twitter handle is @ohnobones.

      Mystery solved.

    • Andrew Becerra

      Its Zantanna

  • Gojira Twit

    It’s Zatanna. Running back down the clues:

    1) Big fan request – before the game’s release, half the wishlists on youtube had Zatanna.
    2) Cars – they had a song called “Magic”
    3) Upside-down – Zatanna’s magic is themed around inversion
    4) Funhouse – a funhouse has mirrors, see #3
    5) Olivia Newton-John – again, had a song called “Magic.”

    • SavingPrincess

      You’re right, but you’re overcomplicating it:

      Clue 1: this video tweeted out by Ed Boon: http://t.co/zLE1822BPb

      Clue 2: Tweet by Ed Boon “Olivia Newton John”

      Clue 3: Tweet by Ed Boon “I heat up, I can’t cool down”

      Clue 1 is a video for the soundtrack to “Pinball Wizard” which was released in 1990

      Clue 2 if you Google “Olivia Newton John” and “1990” the top results are performances for her song “Magic”

      Clue 3 are lyrics from the Steve Miller Band song “Abracadabra”

      Wizard, Magic, Abracadabra
      Zatanna

      “Big fan request – before the game’s release, half the wishlists on youtube had Zatanna.”

      ^Same here, figured she’s fit right in this game. And the character selection so far needs to balance itself out with another female JL character after Batgirl etc.

    “I though we were pals”

    I miss the old pins…Had some decent skill back in the day… I spent quite a bit on funhouse too… had such a great creepy factor I loved it…

    and yeah: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O27E13WFqzI

    If I had an extra 2-4k I would have a few pins…Wondering how this is gonna pan out with injustice though. Hope they keep in the spirit of the game and not just put in a character to bring in one… (ahem scorpion)

  • SavingPrincess

    Uh duh guys, it’s obviously Pinball Wizard

    http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Pinball_Wizard_%28Earth-One%29

    … but seriously, Fast Forward to 8:00, the music gets pretty awesome.

  • SavingPrincess

    It’s actually Zatanna
    – “Pinball Wizard” was released in 1990
    – If you Google “Olivia Newton John 1990” the top results are performances for her song “Magic”
    – “I heat up, I can’t cool down” are lyrics from the Steve Miller Band song “Abracadabra”

    Wizard, Magic, Abracadabra.
    Zatanna

  • Leandro Moreira Duarte

    If it is indeed Zatanna… Great character, great choice.

  • jlb85

    You guys are dumb. It’s obviously going to be Spiderman. And I only needed the above clue from Twitter to figure that out.

  • N.m. Ash

    Williams Arcade game music was EPIC. Terminator 2 was fuckin’ excellent.

  • Skelephant

    “I heat up, I can’t cool down” are the lyrics to the Steve Miller Band’s seminal 80’s classic “Abracadabra.” It’s Zatanna!

  • d3v

    If it’s Zatanna (and it probably is) here’s hoping that they don’t deviate too much from her classic costume (and give her a man face).

    • RomanceHD

      Lol cheers to that. Zatanna is to cute to have a Wonder Woman or Jade face. Still salty that NRS screwed up Jade’s face after her lookin fine on those 3D games. Zatanna should at least be on par with Cat Woman

    • o ChocolateMilk o

      of course she’s going to have a manly face, it wouldn’t be injustice if it wasn’t

    • Ragada Blaze

      Dude this is NRS we’re talking about. When have they not had manly-faced females in their games? (OK Kitana and Jade in the 3D era looked pretty good)

  • Jared Powell

    Apparently we’re getting Sugar Ray as DLC.

  • Michael Maman

    It’s Zatanna. Her gameplay video has been released
