The character trailers for the video game sequel Injustice 2 continue to roll in, and today one was unveiled for the biggest DC villain: The Joker. The video game is a fighting game and a follow-up to 2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us, which allows players to choose from a vast library of DC Comics characters and do battle. It’s basically Mortal Kombat for superhero fans.
This character trailer highlights The Joker, whose design evokes Jared Leto’s get-up in Suicide Squad. The joy is seeing Joker go toe-to-toe with Robin, who he takes particular delight in beating to a pulp.
