DC Comics animated movies have spanned a wide range of different films, even more than that of their live-action films. Various animated movies have adapted popular comic book runs (Superman: Doomsday, Justice League: The New Frontier), anime interpretations (Batman: Gotham Knights), and weird crossovers (Batman Meets The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). You can now add video games to that growing list as well.
Injustice is a series of fighting games where DC Comics heroes and villains battle each other in a decaying world of chaos. It’s essentially the Mortal Kombat equal of DC Comics video games which is not much a huge transition considering there was already a video game of Mortal Kombat versus DC Comics. Now those games will be bringing their storyline of a ravaged universe into an animated film, partially based on the comic book run of the games as well.

Unhinged, Superman decides to take control of the Earth for humanity’s own good. Determined to stop him, Batman creates a team of like-minded, freedom-fighting heroes. But when Super Heroes go to war, can the world survive?
