The folks at NetherRealm have just dropped a rather intimidating teaser over on the official Injustice 2 Twitter page. In this really brief clip we see the pre-match square-up and trash talk between Bane and Gorilla Grodd: two behemoths who look ready to tear each other to shreds.
"Villain versus villain... find out this Thursday, 3.30, that it's good to be bad." Well March 30 would be tomorrow and, as we reported this morning, tomorrow also marks the next new character reveal event for Injustice 2. That does lead us to wonder what this new villainous tease may be hinting at, and there are a few possibilities that seem likely to us.
First of all, Gorilla Grodd and Bane have already both been confirmed as playable characters, obviously. If they're going to have some time in the limelight tomorrow, we expect that it will be because we've yet to see in-depth gameplay footage of either of them. Perhaps we won't have to wait until the next Watchtower stream to see these hulking fiends in action; perhaps tomorrow, as part of the new character reveal, we'll actually get to analyze some high-level Gorilla Grodd and Bane gameplay. We can only imagine how brutal their super finishers are going to be.
It could also be that NetherRealm is teasing a villain theme for tomorrow's reveal. You'll see in our character reveal article that we think a Captain Cold reveal is likely on the way. In case you forgot, we got a very brief look at Captain Cold during the Injustice 2: Shattered Alliances Pt. 2 trailer, but we haven't seen or heard anything about him since. We have a pretty good feeling that it's the Cap that we'll be seeing tomorrow, which would fit right in with this villain theme.
Also, we have it on good authority that the initial Injustice 2 roster will contain 28 characters, and we've already seen 25; we've actually seen 26 if you include Captain Cold's Shattered Alliances cameo. That means that we only have one or two reveals left, and we're still expecting to see Scarecrow and Joker at some point. Perhaps we'll get multiple baddies revealed tomorrow?!
If you've missed any of the 26 characters revealed for Injustice 2 so far, you can get caught up with our wrap-up right here. Give that a look through, and we'll be back tomorrow morning to introduce you to your new character. Stay tuned!
