Ed Boon continues to tease fans with the possibilities of Injustice 2. After teasing Spawn and Mortal Kombat characters, he has now asked fans if they want to see Watchmen characters. Most fans regard Watchmen as the greatest comic book ever made, so seeing these characters in a DC fighting game would be cool.
Boon did not state if they would be guest characters or DLC, though the latter is likely. There are plenty of DLC plans for the comic book-based brawler, so this would be interesting. Here is hoping that they are also working on multiple game modes. They should not want comparisons to Street Fighter 5, aside from a good battle system.
Who Watches The Twitter Polls?
On Twitter, Boon’s poll for the Watchmen characters has gotten a 74 percent yes on wanting to see them as fighters. If the developers seriously consider the idea, comic book readers will flock to Injustice 2. Fans will want to see how Superman does against Doctor Manhattan or maybe pit Batman against Night Owl. The possibilities are endless.
While the idea of Watchmen characters in the game is nice, fans would rather see more DC heroes or villains. Here are the current characters that have been confirmed for the game thus far:
- Blue Beetle
- The Flash
- Gorilla Grodd
- Harley Quinn
- Wonder Woman
Rumor has it that Red Hood (Jason Todd), Captain Cold and Doctor Fate are also joining the game. Until they’re confirmed by Warner Bros, it’s a wait and see situation.
Injustice 2 DLC?
Considering that we don’t even know the Injustice 2 release date, it’ll be hard to say if the game will have Watchmen characters. DLC will likely be the way to bring these characters into the fighter. If this game has characters from Watchmen, Mortal Kombat and Spawn, it will feel like a comic book-style crossover.
While fans wait for the sequel, they can always pick up the Ultimate Edition of the first Injustice. It’s available on PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC. A Watchmen game for PS3 and Xbox 360 is also available, taking place before the events of the Zack Snyder film.
