Captain Marvel in 'Injustice: Gods Among Us'

Check out what the powerful hero looks like in the upcoming fighting game!

The game is still about two months away and there's a lot of spots left in the roster, but we can now say that Captain Marvel is definitely in the game! ComicBookMovie was able to get their hands on a picture taken directly from an issue of @Gamer magazine. According to them, Shazam is indeed a playable character!

Viners, what do you think of the costume? Additionally, what alternate costumes would you like to see for him?

Be sure to check out Billy Batson's Comic Vine bio for more information! Injustice: Gods Among Us will come out April 16th.

This is a GameStop pre-order exclusive. Not sure when it was announced but it's pretty dang cool. Could this game get any better?

I'm definitely excited that he's in the game. I think the lightning bolt looks a little weird, though.

Goodness, rounding up the rest of the MK vs DC cast I see, We better have Black Adam in there too! C'mon, Aquaman would be perfect as these armored look would go well with Atlantean scaly body armor! Black Manta needs to be here as well as Sinestro! One character I don't think anyone's mentioned is Dr.Fate. With all the fantasy element in Injustice, it'll be nice to see Fate in action.

Sinestro's gonna be in the game. In one of the more recent trailers, he's been spotted (although we don't know if he's playable or not). Aquaman has been semi-confirmed, but I want to see it for myself, dammit. Black Manta and Dr. Fate would be amazing.

I liked it. I tend to prefer costumes that look more like armor than, well, costumes.

@evilvegeta74: I keep hearing that Hawkman won't be in the game, because one of the creators said no or something. I've seen his tweets he doesnt want him in the game. I also forgot the dudes name.

That is not cool man.

Yeah. Ed Boon confirmed months ago that we woudnt be seeing Hawkman in the game because some old Justice League comic reminds him of his old company going under. Im cool with it personally as long as Hawkwoman is playable

He still has a small head. They need to add Martian Manhunter and have the 3 most powerful DC heroes in it. Plus Darkseid. They need someone to pose a real threat besides just Doomsday.

Its not bad, and Im usually a fan of the more realistic/armored superhero costumes, but this game really takes it to the extremes.

The costumes in this game look terrible. I'm sick of the armored new 52 look.

I'm not the biggest fan either. I think it's because they seem overly elaborate.

It would probably look good to me if... he didn't have that Hood.   I keep thinking Assassins Creed (+)

It be cool if they had Mar-vell in the game. Then we could see some Captain Marvel on Captain Marvel action.

i like the Red Sun dlc pack, they look good. i dont like Shazam's costume, the boots and all the strips dont do it for me, less of the strips would be better imo. if hes gonna have altenate costume one of them better be BLACK ADAM
