The world of Netherealm Studios' DC Comics fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us is set to receive an animated feature film adaptation. The alternate reality story will be the next release from Warner Bros Animation, revealed inadvertently in details for their upcoming project.

IGN reported the news, which came via Warner Bros' announcement of details for the upcoming release of Batman: The Long Halloween, Part 2. The home movie animated sequel to the adaptation of Jeph Loeb & Tim Sale's 1997 comic book masterpiece will include a trailer for the Injustice: Gods Among Us movie.

There are no further plot details about the Injustice movie available at this time. The game spawned a 2017 video game sequel and continued to expand upon its backstory in a series of popular comic book tie-ins. Injustice features a world where Superman is driven to establish a dictatorial regime after his wife Lois Lane, carrying their unborn child, is murdered by The Joker. He's opposed by a faction of rebel heroes led by Batman.

The Injustice movie is speculated to be coming before the end of 2021, and will follow in the footsteps of last year's NetherRealm animated feature Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge. A sequel is expected. You can watch the red band trailer and discuss more MK in the Media & Merchandise forum.

NetherRealm Studios returned to business at the start of the year to work on "the next show", and rumors of another DC Comics project have been widely speculated about, even as the developer's status becomes less certain.
