DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announce Injustice, an Elseworld story about a superhero civil war between Batman and Superman. After the recent success of the Mortal Kombat Legends series, WB turns to their DC-based superhero one on one fighter: Injustice: Gods Among Us and the best-selling DC graphic novel based on the video game, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One by Tom Taylor (DCeased: Dead Planet, X Men Red), for inspiration. The animated film Injustice finds an alternate world gone mad – where The Joker has duped Superman into killing Lois Lane, sending the Man of Steel on a deadly rampage. Unhinged, Superman decides to take control of the Earth for humanity’s own good. Determined to stop him, Batman creates a team of like-minded, freedom-fighting heroes. But when Super Heroes go to war, can the world survive? Who would really win if Batman fought Superman or any other Superhero? Fans who have played both realize how very similar the Netherealm Studios video games are. If Injustice can capture the action and fatalities from the games as well as the animated Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms did, it is an instant hit.
An unthinkable tragedy propels Superman into a dangerous new mindset, ultimately pitting Justice League members against each other in Injustice, an all-new DC Animated Movie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The feature-length animated film is set for release on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray, and Digital on October 19, 2021, and of course, includes special features:
- Adventures in Storytelling – Injustice: Crisis and Conflict (New Featurette)
- The storytellers behind the new Injustice animated film discuss how all the intense drama and unabashed action was brought to life.
- DC Universe Movies Flashback
- The Death of Superman
- Reign of the Supermen
- From the DC Vault
- Justice League – Injustice For All, Part I
- Justice League – Injustice For All, Part II
