Now that the cat’s out of the bag and Injustice 2 has been officially announced, it’s that time when people start speculating which DC characters will be added to the cast.

To add some more fuel to the fire, NetherRealm’s Ed Boon has recently gone on Twitter with a poll, asking players to vote for who they would like to see the most in the new game. This particular poll includes only three character choices: Blue Beetle, Captain Cold, and Swamp Thing.

Blue Beetle has always been a favorite among DC fans. More importantly, his magical scarab-powered battle suit could fit in well with the game’s gear mechanic.

Captain Cold, on the other hand, is one of the Flash’s villains–one of his more popular ones at that. Some fans have noted that parts of the trailer already hint at his appearance in the game, so his inclusion in the poll is noteworthy.

Made popular by legendary creator Alan Moore, Swamp Thing is an elemental entity that can animate any plant and vegetable matter near itself. As with the Blue Beetle, this could play well into Injustice 2’s gear mechanic.

Injustice 2 is currently set for a 2017 release date. We’re bound to know more about it and its cast in the months to come.
