With less than five weeks to go, we’re finally in the home stretch of Injustice 2’s release. Following gameplay trailers for The Flash and Captain Cold, as well as a series of Watchtower livestreams, Injustice.com has once again updated–claiming that the next character reveal will be taking place on Friday, April 28th, a mere 18 days before the title releases.
With the revelation that Mr. Freeze would be a premier skin for Captain Cold in the “Your Battles, Your Way” trailer, and only 11 slots remaining on the Injustice website–10 of which are likely reserved for DLC characters–we could be looking at the final fighter joining the base roster.
All signs point to the Clown Prince of Crime, The Joker, making his glorious return; NetherRealm Studio’s Ed Boon even recently tweeted a vine of Tara Strong (who voices Harley Quinn in both the Injustice and Arkham series) together with Mark Hamill, the original voice of the animated Joker–who, despite stating he’d retire from the role after Arkham City, has returned to voice the character in a few other projects. Richard Epcar voiced the Joker in the original Injustice, however. You can view the tweet below.

Or perhaps this is elaborate misdirection? Either way, we’ll find out in a few short weeks. In the meantime, don’t forget to tune in to today’s Watchtower live stream, featuring character breakdowns for Gorilla Grodd, Scarecrow & Firestorm!
