The upcoming animated film Injustice tells the story of a world where Superman goes off the rails after the Joker kills Lois Lane and his unborn child. This leads Batman to lead a fight against a newly despotic Man of Steel. But before the two “World’s Finest Heroes” became bitter enemies, they were the best of friends. Along with Wonder Woman, this version of the “DC Trinity” led their Earth’s Justice League. But when tragedy strikes, their world is forever changed.
In this exclusive clip from Injustice, we see Batman (Anson Mount) in Metropolis, following a lead on the Joker. He’s taking out a bunch of thugs in the process. He encounters Superman (Justin Hartley), who has some big news to tell the Dark Knight. You can watch the scene from Injustice right here in our exclusive clip:
One thing fans notice right off the bat (no pun intended), is that Kal-El’s costume, even before he goes full dictator, has a high collar. This look suggests he’s already leaning towards a more militaristic, even fascist approach to policing the world. It’s our first indication that this Superman is not exactly the same Superman we’ve always known. And Bruce might get a little gruff with Clark, but you can tell from Anson Mount’s performance that he genuinely does respect and care about his Kryptonian BFF.
