Warner Bros. has finally revealed more about its animated Injustice: Gods Among Us movie it announced in May. The film, based off the popular 2013 NetherRealm Studios-developed fighting game that got its own comic series, received its cast as well as its release window. Warner Bros. didn’t give a specific release date for the movie, but it is set to come out physically and digitally this fall.
TheHollywoodReporter reported on the whole cast list, which contains a lot of familiar animation names. However, no one from the video game series reprises their role here. Here’s the full cast list:
- Justin Hartley as Superman
- Anson Mount as Batman
- Laura Bailey as Lois Lane and Rama Kushna
- Gillian Jacobs as Harley Quinn
- Anika Rose as Catwoman
- Janet Varney as Wonder Woman
- Kevin Pollak as Joker and Jonathan Kent
- Zach Callison as Damian and Jimmy Olsen
- Brian T. Delaney as Green Lantern
- Brandon Michael Hall as Cyborg
- Edwin Hodge as Mr. Terrific and Killer Croc
- Oliver Hudson as Plastic Man
- Yuri Lowenthal as Mirror Master, Flash, and Shazam
- Derek Phillips as Nightwing and Aquaman
- Reid Scott as Green Arrow and Victor Zsasz
- Faran Tahir as Ra’s al Ghul
- Fred Tatasciore as Captain Atom
- Andrew Morgado as Mirror Master Soldier
While the voiceover talent from the game didn’t carry over to the film, this Injustice: Gods Among Us movie does have some creative talent from the two Mortal Kombat Legends animated movies. Rick Morales will the producer.
A few others have transferred from other DC media. Matt Peters, known for directing Justice League Dark: Apokolips War and his artistry on many other DC animated films, is directing Injustice: Gods Among Us. Batman: Hush and Justice League: Action writer Ernie Altbacker is writing the script. Warner Bros. Animation President Sam Register and Green Lantern: The Animated Series Producer Jim Krieg are executive producers.
This is not the only film based on a NetherRealm Studios franchise coming out this year. Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms is slated to come out on August 31, 2021 through digital and physical storefronts. But it’s still unknown what game NetherRealm is working on as it recently ceased support for Mortal Kombat 11 in lieu of its next mystery project. Rumors have floated around saying it was a Marvel fighting game, while the studio’s pattern might point to Injustice 3. It might even be something else entirely, but the Chicago developer has not said either way.
