Black Adam confirmed.
Robert englund as scarecrow is just......ingenious
Even better, Injustice's Scarecrow was killed in the tie-in comic and now has somehow been resurrected as a sadistic, fear-inspiring undead entity.
Makes it a shame they couldn't get Englund to voice Freddy himself in MK9 - although that character may not have had any spoken dialogue.
Aside from that, 99% sure the final character to be revealed is Joker - since nearly all leaks point in that direction.
EDIT: Theory - Englund is good friends with Mark Hamill (he actually landed him the audition for Star Wars). Maybe the reason NR got Englund on board with the project was through Hamill -- so perhaps Hamill is voicing Joker in this game instead of Richard Epcar? I hope.
Well to be fair, 1) none of the DLC characters in MK9 were given full voice-overs, just generic grunts (presumably to save on money), and 2), the version of Freddy that showed up in MK9 was actually supposed to be based off of the one from then-recent 2010 reboot (even if all of Freddy's moves in that game were references to the original movies), so Warner Bros might not have approved of the idea of bringing back the actor who played the original version of Freddy and reminding fans about him, when they wanted people to get on board with the new Freddy.
Still, it's pretty cool that they managed to get Englund to just basically voice his most iconic role again, only as a comic book supervillain now. Funny enough, this isn't even the first time Robert Englund voiced a Batman villain, he was also the voice of the Riddler in the 2004 The Batman cartoon.
I kind of hope not. I know that Joker being dead in the Injustice world means nothing now that Green Arrow is back even though he died in the game's backstory (and technically, Black Canary was supposed to have been sent to another dimension in the Injustice comics), but I think we have enough Batman villains at this point.
I'm fairly certain Joker is next to confirmed. The leaked roster which accurately predicted every single other character has him down as the last unrevealed character. Although I do agree that the roster has plenty of Batman characters (I wish they would include more Flash villains, his rogues gallery is just as plentiful as Batman's. Fingers crossed for weather wizard or captain boomerang in the dlc).
RIP, Killer Frost. Replaced by Captain Cold.
Wait, so Scarecrow starts out as a normal guy in this game before he becomes Freddy Kruger?
If you look at 2:10, you can see that one of the alternate costumes for Captain Cold appears to be Mr. Freeze, seemingly confirming that Mr. Freeze will be a premier costume just like Reverse-Flash and Power Girl.
Damn, the developers managed to sneak another playable Batman character into this game.
So wait, the Joker isn't playable in this one because of some backstory thing?
It's widely known that he's the final character from the main roster to be revealed. The Joker in the Injustice universe died before the events of the first game, the Joker in that game was from an alternate universe. Therefore it's likely that the Joker in Injustice 2 will be from a different universe as well (they've already done the same thing with Green Arrow).
Scarecrow's full reveal shows he's not really an undead monster, just that he's dosed everyone with fear gas to make them hallucinate. Seems like Green Arrow isn't the only character to be resurrected with no explanation. :/
Already posted it just up above.
It looks like the 'Freddy Krueger' appearance is only created in his opponent's mind through use of the fear toxin, so in reality Scarecrow himself is still a regular guy. Just look at his intro, where he sprays himself with gas and then appears as his monster form.
She looks like she'd be a lot of fun to play! And they did an excellent job distinguishing her powers from Swamp Thing's.
I wonder if they'll even bother addressing that he was killed in the tie-in comics.
Swamp Thing vs. Poison Ivy!
