I think Martian Manhunter is going to be dlc cause in ed boon's crossword puzzle you can find the words (no mmhunter). Im hoping that Raven,Zatanna, Black Canary or Starfire get revealed next

Is Hawkgirls VA the same one from the DCAU?

Sinestro will be demolished by Superman.

Also wouldn't Sinestro just be a Hal Jordan Green Landern clone but with a yellow costume/skin?

Voted for Superman & Hawkgirl.

I'm so excited Hawkgirl is in the game...looks like she'll be my main, that is of course if they reveal Black Canary, Zatanna, Starfire, or Poison Ivy...then I'll have a really hard time deciding who to main.

P.S.

Wouldn't it be awesome if next weeks battle was Catwoman vs Black Canary?

That was a great design for Hawkgirl, can't wait to use her in the game :) I wonder if they'll reveal or eventually include characters like Red Hood or villains like Hush or Grodd?

Dissapointed with these choices tbh.

I want Sinestro in the game, but as an alt skin for GL, with maybe a different final move and some more "feary-like" attack graphics, the same core attacks, but not as a seperate character no.

Hawkgirl I could care less about, though I'm happy for the people for the people who wanted her.

Really hope they add Swamp Thing, it really is my only request.

Sure Red Hood is cool, sure Mr Freeze and Poison Ivy have cool methods of attack, but Swamp Thing is just so different from any other character that he is a must have.

Hawkman > Hawkgirl lol

Great reveals though, I'm glad Sinestro and Hawkgirl are in the game.

Winners: Superman & Green Arrow

I agree, I'd rather see Hawkman but good nonetheless!

@SNascimento:It was said 24 slots minimum a while back but with the battle area fight bracket in place one of two things will happen, either Nightwing, Deathstroke and Catwoman; along with any new characters will not get a battle arena fight...

or they will open a second tournament bracket in coming weeks.

sadly it is more likely they won't be more brackets for the battle arena since the entire justice league is already in the first :(

Sinestro and Hawkgirl, nice!

I wonder if they pitted Deathstroke against anyone yet?

EDIT

Nope! Sorry. My bad.

Who the hell wants to play as Hawkgirl? That's like shitting on Hawkman. Sinestro tho? Happy Happy. His shoulder pads are stupid, but I'm happy he's in this. I would have liked to see a GL DLC with other ring characters. Kyle, Larfleeze, St Walker, Guy, Atrocitus. Well that's one rumor taken care of. Next up, Black Adam.

Hawkgirl and not Hawkman? Well that's crap.

Its not that bad. Hawkgirl is awesome.

But I'd rather have Carter seething with rage and smushing pepole with a giant axe

Hawkgirl can be rage-y too....kinda. and she's smooshing people with her mace, so thats something.

Only surprising given how much we all know Ed Boon hates Hawkman.

I'm sad that they're going for popularity as the main factor when deciding what character to put into the game, there are many other characters that would bring a lot of diversity to the roster, like Martian Manhunter, Mirror Master, Plastic Man, The Creeper, The Spectre (a tad nerfed though to fit into the game), Scarecrow, Lobo, and others, but being that they're not that popular they'll probably wont make it into the roster (maybe Martian Manhunter).

Yay for Hawkgirl ehh for Sinestro, I wanna see more diversity throw in Vixen, Zatanna, Martian Manhunter, Black Canary and Batwoman. Not to mention more villans not related to Batman, Ares, Cheetah, Circe, Captain Cold they have plenty of options. Maybe some will come out as dlc.

@SNascimento: I'm glad Sinestro is in the game, but you do make some good points. Injustice needs more girl playable characters.

Didn't think I could get more pumped for this game until now. Could not care less about random testimonials but the game looks like it's going to be awesome.

I'm not fan of Hawkgirl, but don't see a problem with her being playable... Sinestro though, we already have Hal Jordan, wouldn't his space be better occupied by someone like Zatanna? I'm still hoping her, Black Canary, Huntress and MM being playable. Although I don't know how many slots are left.

By MM, do you mean Mirror Master? Because if so, I agree.

im pretty sure he's talking about Martian Manhunter. there is a big demand for him in the game.
