DO NOT REUSE!

While we still haven’t seen a reveal trailer for Starfire — who will complete Injustice 2’s Fighter Pack 1 for Digital Deluxe and Ultimate Edition owners — it seems that leaks have already begun to spring for the upcoming Fighter Pack 2.

Earlier today, CabooseXBL, a notable YouTuber who covers NetherRealm Studios’ games, has reported in his latest video that the Xbox Live Marketplace has leaked Black Manta as a future DLC character, with a tab on the Xbox One’s dashboard that simply reads, “Fight as Black Manta in Injustice 2.” Though we’ve seen a very convincing silhouette of Aquaman’s nemesis, who currently only exists in the game as part of the Stage Transition in Atlantis, we’ve yet to hear anything about any of the other 6 DLC characters coming to the game after Red Hood, Sub-Zero, and Starfire have all been released.

Though any big NRS news was absent amidst the tidal wave of announcements on Sunday at the Evo World Finals, Ed Boon Tweeted earlier this month that WB Games will have a presence at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con this weekend, where last year they revealed Wonder Woman and Blue Beetle for the DC brawler. Could we be seeing a gameplay trailer for Starfire, as well as a Fighter Pack 2 reveal in just a few short days? Only time will tell. But for now, fans of Black Manta can rest assured that he will be coming to challenge Arthur Curry for control of Injustice’s seas eventually. You can see the full video — which includes a shot of the dashboard leak — as well as Ed Boon’s Tweet, below.

San Diego Comic Con takes place from July 20-23 at the San Diego Convention Center.
