Fans of super-person pile-ons and animated stuff are in luck; developer Netherrealm’s acclaimed superhero fighting series Injustice: Gods Among Us is getting the animated movie treatment courtesy of DC and Warner Bros. Animation.
That’s according to the Hollywood Reporter, which says the film – to be released under the DC Animated Movie banner – will draw inspiration from Netherrealm’s video game titles as well as writer Tom Taylor’s Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One, a comic book prequel to the games.
Its animated action will reportedly unfold on an alternate version of Earth where the Joker has successfully managed to trick Superman into killing Lois Lane, sending the superhero on a rampage of destruction. “This unhinged Superman decides to take control of Earth for its own good,” says the Hollywood Reporter, “leading Batman and his allies to attempt to stop him.”
