The Joker Confirmed as Playable in Injustice 2, New Trailer

The Clown Prince of Crime is making his return as a playable character in Injustice 2, as you can see in this new trailer.

As you've probably guessed from all the rumblings and leaks this week, Joker is returning as a playable character in Injustice 2. NetherRealm confirmed this today, and released a new trailer that shows off some of Joker's moves and special abilities.

Some of those moves look kind of familiar from the last Injustice game, like the explosives, but that special finisher with the electric chair is awfully...involved. It's also interesting to see him wielding a knife this time around.

You can find out more about Injustice 2 by checking out the achievements list and the gear system explanation.

Injustice 2 is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.

Joker? Where?

I dont see any Joker.

Edit: Snark aside, the Injustice 1 Joker was mostly perfect...and he used a knife too.

This one wanted to be both Ledger and Leto...and is just the bad of both. Im afraid to even hear him talk.

Like this wasn't going to happen...

All I can think of looking at this Joker is that he is clearly made to attract those Tumblr/Deviantart Female artist where they will draw lewd, yaoi art of this Joker and probably ship him with Batman.

Because seriously this Joker looks like an Emo Boytoy for Horny Fangirls to abuse with said fanart and fanfiction.

...This Joker is fug ugly as all fugly hell. Unless people want to make vore porn out of it.

I am pretty sure this Joker is trying to be both Ledger and Leto...and both of those suck. Just have the same Joker they did in Injustice 1...its presumably the same guy.

I am really starting to think this game is going to be garbage.

Oh hey, I found some alpha models of this Joker.

Because of the art department its gonna be garbage? Wait until you actually do the gameplay aspect of a fighting game.

No, it is just a cherry of bad choices. Plus I mean, you arent exactly someone to criticize someone for being skeptical.

As for the gameplay, 1 was mediocre. It felt like a knock-off Mortal Kombat...minus a block button. I get that it is a side game or whatever, but MKX was so good.

And seriously, add a block button. Holding back to block sucks.

"I'm not Jason Todd!" *proceeds to get Jason Todded* :^)

But yeah, I know Joker's supposed to have a fucked up face but...what the fuck happened to his face? o.o

Is it odd that I feel some sort of not-quite-guilty-pleasure interest in this new Joker design? Makes me think that he's gotten brain-damaged so badly that he's trying hard to relive his teenage years with his new antics. The fact that they didn't commit fully to this new design and give him a new voice to boot kind of makes me sad, but I understand why. Faux-Hamill or Horrible Ratings, pick your poison.

To me, the whole design just screams 'guy who's obsessed with the way he almost died' and tried to keep the exact look he had at the brink of death, which is something Joker would probably do for fun. Sure, it doesn't quit line up perfectly with his original Regime universe attire, but c'mon, that's just a retcon away and a quick "how we got here" scene of a fist through the chest/stomach from being plausible.

God, I hope more effort to reflecting the worn down look vocally is given in the story mode, at least. He's got to show up so it'd be quite a waste to not show us this lovable maniac at his lowest point when he finally paid for a joke going too far.

You know what makes the Joker's look so timeless... He was never trying to look cool.

Either way I don't care for the Joker because faithful or not he is even more an Overrated DC character than Batman.

Why do people hold him in such high regard above all other DC villains?

is this the Joker or a guy pretending to be him I know Injustice Joker was kill by Superman. (what the hell is on his chest?)

And another attack on Batman. I agree with being overused, but its kinda becoming a pattern with your attitude towards it.

Mainly because Joker is a character that people sees as somewhat fascinating. A psychotic opposite of Batman who wants to cause chaos and havoc just for the fun of it.

To be fair, so was Jared Leto's lame version from Suicide Squad. Also as much as I enjoy Injustice 1, even its character designs were one of the biggest weaknesses imo.

Max Landis is hung.

The non-Evil Superman universe Joker survived. It was the Joker that made Superman go crazy that is killed.

Looks like he's scribbled "HA!" onto his chest, which is only marginally better than having "Damaged" on his forehead

THANK YOU.

I was trying to think who he reminded me of.

And all I have to say to any of this, is fuck you DCEU. It's bad enough your characters and designs are shit, but now it's bleeding into everything else. At the very least Leto's Joker looked like an adult. A adult in his 50's pretending to be 20-something, but an adult none the less. This Joker looks like he's taking fashion advice from emo loving teens.

By the way they have Darkseid on the youtube channel too

Isn't Darkseid a preorder bonus?

Huh, I actually like this Joker design. It looks like a toned down version of Letos crossed with old school Joker.

Or maybe I'm biased because almost anything would be better than Letos joker

If you have to draw inspiration from Leto's "Joker", then it's time to throw the bath out with the bathwater.

No, anything is better than Leto's.

Eh Psychopaths are overrate there is no charcater depth by just wanting to destroying everything becuase its fun, if anything Batman deserves a Lawful Evil Megalomaniacal villain like Lex Luthor than a Psychopathic Chaotic Evil villain.

There is no appropriate response to this other than intense sarcasm dialled up to a million.

I disagree. Lex Luthor works better with Superman as a stark contrast of values or ideals. I say the same with Joker and Batman. Its like a card game and see what card the opponent throws up his sleeve.

Nah, Joker looks worse. Those expressions are hilarious.

That's because they are merely real life humans restricted by the confines of reality while you are being judgy much.
Sense of humour; unfortunately found wanting...

I didn't know Joker was a fan of AFI!

As for the reveal it was kind of an obvious one. Where there is Batman there will be The Joker, especially in video games. Has he come back in the Injustice comic series yet?

I see the humor quite well, its these perticular men that I have disgust towards.

Long story short, I hate the Red Letter Media guys.

I find them to be pretentious,jaded, arrogant, killjoys that treats their opinion as gosple. Like most MOVIE critics these days.
