February 2, 2017Written by Jason Dunning

In the new Injustice 2 gameplay trailer today, Black Canary was revealed as a playable fighter by NetherRealm and Warner Bros. Along with her moveset, the video also provides a look at some of the different stages.

If you’re looking to play Injustice 2 before launch, Ed Boon said more beta codes would be going out today to those who signed up (registration is now closed). Current beta players can expect an update today that adds Blue Beetle as a playable character.

So far, the Injustice 2 roster includes Black Canary, Robin, Brainiac, Poison Ivy, Bane, Batman, Blue Beetle, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Deadshot, Gorilla Grodd, Aquaman, and Atrocitus. It looks like there will be 19 additional characters in the full game, to go along with at least nine DLC characters.

Here’s what the official website says about Robin and Brainiac:


Raised from birth by the League of Assassins, Damian Wayne has always struggled with Batman’s non-lethal code of honor. Now in direct opposition with his father, Damian seeks a new mentor in Superman – whom he considers to be more of a father than Batman ever was.


Brainiac is a megalomaniacal genius who roams the universe, collecting knowledge to increase his intellectual and scientific prowess. Obsessed with establishing his superiority, Brainiac captured Krypton’s greatest cities, then eradicated what remained…or so he thought. Tales of the “Last Son of Krypton” have reached far into the stars. Now, the Collector of Worlds comes to Earth to finish his accumulation of Krypton – and discovers a new world worthy of his collection.

Injustice 2 releases on May 16 in North America and May 19 in Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
