DC is still kicking Marvel’s butt when it comes to their animated series and films and the first look at Injustice shows a an alternate universe take on the Justice League that blows away anything we’ve seen from What If? on Disney+. In the new animated feature, based on the popular game, Superman murders The Joker in retaliation for the killing of Lois Lane. This sends Kal-El down a dark path and basically turns the world on its head.

What results is a war between Superman and Batman and the allies they’ve gathered as they go into battle. The red-band trailer doesn’t hold back on just how dark the film gets, showing off Superman as he takes out several DC characters. We can’t wait to see the finished project when it is released on October 19, 2021.

An unthinkable tragedy propels Superman into a dangerous new mindset, ultimately pitting Justice League members against each other in Injustice, an all-new DC Animated Movie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, the feature-length animated film is set for release on 4K Ultra HDTM Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-rayTM and Digital on October 19, 2021. Inspired by Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios’ popular video game, and the best-selling DC graphic novel based on the video game, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One by Tom Taylor, the animated film Injustice finds an alternate world gone mad – where The Joker has duped Superman into killing Lois Lane, sending the Man of Steel on a deadly rampage. 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?
