NetherRealm Studios polls fans to determine 'Injustice 2' guest stars

injustice 2 twitter polls seek out potential guest stars injustice2guest
NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon is polling his Twitter followers regarding expanded roster additions for the upcoming fighting game sequel Injustice 2, revealing that guest stars from multiple comic book universes and the Mortal Kombat series are under consideration.

Boon divides his nominees between comic book stars and Mortal Kombat veterans, making it likely that Injustice 2 will feature a slate of playable characters hailing from outside the series’ established DC Universe setting.

Injustice 2 is a planned follow-up to 2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us, a one-on-one fighting game featuring DC Comics characters including Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. The series debut allowed players to pit their favorite superheroes against one another in brutal battles for supremacy, while an alternate-universe story mode featured villains like the Joker, Doomsday, and Sinestro.

The original Injustice also allowed players to assume the role of Scorpion, an undead ninja featured throughout NetherRealm’s Mortal Kombat series. Injustice 2 will follow suit by offering up its own Mortal Kombat guest star, and Twitter users can vote in Boon’s poll to determine who gets the nod.

Mortal Kombat stars up for consideration include the ice-wielding ninja Sub-Zero, lightning god Raiden, cocky movie star Johnny Cage, and bionically augmented soldier Jax. Currently, Sub-Zero leads Boon’s poll by a considerable margin, making him a likely lock for the upcoming sequel.

In terms of guest stars from other media franchises, Boon asks his Twitter followers to choose between Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy, the T-800 from the Terminator film series, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. As of this writing, the poll shows Spawn taking a decisive lead, with Hellboy trailing at a distant second.

As with NetherRealm’s previous games like Mortal Kombat X, Injustice 2‘s chosen guest stars will likely be available as paid downloadable content following the game’s worldwide launch. A release date for Injustice 2 is not yet known.
