Set for release in 2013, the game will feature a pantheon of DC staples, with the currently revealed roster already including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Harley Quinn, and Solomon Grundy. The storyline will involve the traditional breakdown of DC's good guys and bad guys being blurred, as the initial trailer poses the question, "What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat?"

Development on Injustice is being handled by NetherRealm Studios, best known as the outfit behind the Mortal Kombat series of games. The team at NetherRealm already has experience adapting the DC universe to fighting games, having created Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe in November 2008, just months before then-publisher Midway went bankrupt and was eventually acquired by WBIE.
