Ed Boon teases Penguin, Martian Manhunter and DLC for Injustice: Gods Among Us

Posted by SFilp • January 11, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. PST
In a seemingly random tweet, Ed Boon appears to be teasing a new character for Injustice: Gods Among Us.

In a picture of his clock, you can clearly see the two folders on his desktop named Penguin, Martian Manhunter and DLC. Boon has teased many characters in the past and just recently confirmed that some will be for story only and will not be playable.

Here is his tweet and below is the image.

For some reason I'm STARVING. Time is moving slow today. Dinner order can't get here soon enough !!

While i'm all for more Batman Characters, I would love to see some other non-Batman characters revealed just to avoid people crying about it being a Batman+Friends game

yeah pre-release DLC announcement - the best way to hype for a game...

I don't think Penguin would be playable.

Peguin? I don't know bout him....Shoulda just added commissioner gordan.

AugustAPC said on January 11, 2013 at 8:22 p.m.

Penguin? There's no way he's playable. Overlooking the fact that there's already enough Batman characters... if they had to add more, there are FAR better choices than Penguin.

Martian Manhunter, on the other hand, would be a 100% welcome addition!

@6 He also hints Black Adam

here: https://twitter.com/noobde/status/289...

and here: https://twitter.com/noobde/status/289...

He hinted Green Arrow, Green Lantern and the Joker in the same manner...and they happened.

Also, I wonder if the time 6:10 or if that clock has any significance in that pic...

@2 You mean beat around the bush?

What is "be behind the bush?"

@3 Someone on TYM said that those symbols just mean those folders are shortcuts. Presumably the ones with that mark (MMHunter, AIAS, and Cinema Renders) were actual folders that were moved to the desktop or "make a desktop shortcut". The folders without the marks (Penguin, DLC, and Co???) may be empty folders that were just created on the desktop as a troll or distraction.

Instead of more Batman fighters let's use this roster for characters like Beast Boy, Raven, Starfire, Static, Lobo, Hawkgirl, and Martian Manhunter, Shazam, Black Adam Captain Cold

let's make this Injustice Gods Among Us and not Another Lego Batman 2

EvilRick said on January 11, 2013 at 8:38 p.m.

Come on guys, we all know Ed Boon is such a troll on his twitter, remember on MK9 how he constatly teased things about Bo Rai Cho and Onaga?

No more Batman characters please.....

jme said on January 11, 2013 at 9:31 p.m.

If there has to be another Batman character, give it to Mr. Freeze so Sub-zero players can feel right at home.

maxs2d2ace said on January 11, 2013 at 9:36 p.m.

ive been supporting this game but if they add any more batman characters they might as well call it batman and friends battle

#21
ButterKnife said on January 11, 2013 at 9:40 p.m.

As much as I would want Penguin, his folder is empty. That could be an Ono-level troll move.

And I think it's Ironic that people say "no more Batman characters" because they want variety... and then they request Superman clones like Shazam and Powergirl... at least Penguin would have some unique moves. He could be this game's MODOK.

#22
tidestick said on January 11, 2013 at 9:40 p.m.

just cause theres a folder that says penguin,dlc, or whatever don't mean nothing. i got a porn folder that says church. ;/

The VA for Martian Manhunter was heard in a trailer for this game along with Kevin Conroy for Batman so not too surprising

theshredder39 said on January 12, 2013 at 12:20 a.m.

#1 I hate to break it to you but the moment Bane was shown I came to the conclusion that this game really is Batman and His Amazing Friends unless maybe we get just as many Superman characters cause by all means Superman was DC's first superhero and pretty much the first superhero so I think he deserves something special in a game like this.

#31
SnakeX said on January 12, 2013 at 12:47 a.m.

@1

When 25% of the total cast is made up of Batman characters, then the game pretty much is Batman & Friends. Especially if the game's story revolves around the Joker as the main villain, which has been implied multiple times already.

@22

There's nothing to suggest that Power Girl would necessarily be a Super Man clone, and we already know from DCvsMK that they can differentiate Shazam and Superman easily enough, so that argument doesn't hold up.

@31

Ahem; Mandrake the Magician was the world's first ever superhero. The Phantom was the first superhero to wear spandex and have a hidden identity. Superman was simply the first superhero to be featured in a comic book (the other two began in comic strips).

#32
Mac_Gargan said on January 12, 2013 at 1:31 a.m.

#22, Agree!

Fighters need the weird odd-man-out types. They are my favorites.

How better to annoy serious Batman players than to be fireballing them with clouds of birds and shoving an umbrella up his butt.

This game needs a MODOK and a Sentinel.

He's trolling right? Gotta be, no way he'd drop bombs like this..... would he? *Sqeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*

WTH where all the gals Boon?! are you hating on females or something? ...there're so many female DC characters Netherrealm could add that there's not even funny!...among the most hyped/asked are - Black Canary, Hawkgirl, Vixen, Powergirl/Supergirl (either of these me thinks...), Poison Ivy (even though she's "yet another" Batman character...) and many many more!...whats with all the no love for female roster?...so far we only have Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Catwoman and thats ALL?...Boon...you gotta be kidding me...more females or i won't buy this freaking game as everything about it seems already disappointing to me!...

GREAT MORE BATMAN CHARACTERS...NOT
THE ROSTER OF THIS GAME MAKES MVC2 OVERSATURATION OF STREET FIGHTERS AND X-MEN LOOK REASONABLE LOL

No one has said Penguin is playable... don't get your knickers in a twist ladies...

AngrySteve said on January 12, 2013 at 6:37 a.m.

Batman characters thus far: Batman, Nightwing, Harley Quinn, Joker, Bane, Catwoman. So I'm counting 6 Batman characters out of the 15 or so characters revealed so far. If I remember correctly Boon said this game would have like 20 or 22 characters. I don't know if he counts Boss characters in the mix but I would say he is probably saving the best ones for last. Would really like to see some Green Lantern play.

#40
ghosttouchdowns said on January 12, 2013 at 7:23 a.m.

Boon has said they want this game to be a franchise. Batman is the most casually popular and well known lot of DC characters. It makes sense that the first game int he franchise would be populated with the most casually popular characters. Just like the MvC games were heavy on X-men. Not sure why everyon is acting surprised that 6 of a likely 24 or Bat-verse.

#41
Liberator said on January 12, 2013 at 7:39 a.m.

6 of 24? lets see : Harley Quinn - check (this is one...), Catwoman - Check (two...), Batman himself - check (three...), Bane - Check (four...), Joker - Check (five...), Nightwing - Check (six...), Solomon Grundy - Check (SEVEN!!...), Deathstroke - Check! (Eight...!!!)...need more?...how about Robin, that is nearly confirmed? how about Penguin?...oh yeah...6 out of 15...makes sense...but yeah lets see all the nahsayers now trying to tell me how this is "FIRST game in the series..." and some other similar bullsh*t...

#42
knuxpyro56 said on January 12, 2013 at 7:57 a.m.

Actually Grundy is more of a GL villian and everyone knows that Deathstroke is a Titans villian hence why most of the fanbase remembers him as Slade

#43
Liberator said on January 12, 2013 at 8:07 a.m.

#43 WTH was they both doing in Batman Arkham City game then? doesn't it make them Batman characters uh oh...

#44
TheShadowDancer6 said on January 12, 2013 at 8:25 a.m.

@44 that is like saying Spiderman is from the X-Men universe as he has been in X-Men comics/cartoons... lol it's the stupidest thing I have read on Eventhubs so far lol it's called crossover as DC owns the rights to their characters

#45
Liberator said on January 12, 2013 at 8:32 a.m.

#45 i don't freaking care! for me and i can almost guarantee for the wast majority they're known as Batman characters for most, because they're more popular and recognized as such, thus rendering them as Batman related characters, than anything else...so its not really "where this certain character originated from..." kind of situation...

#46
AngrySteve said on January 12, 2013 at 9:10 a.m.

#46 Okay keep telling yourself that. Doesn't change the fact that your wrong though so yeah sorry to rain on your parade. Everyone who know even the littlest thing about comics knows DeathStroke is a Titans villain. Solomon Grudy was a foe of the original Green Lantern Alan Scott.

#47
Liberator said on January 12, 2013 at 9:14 a.m.

...okay if you care to dig that much...might as well count off the whole Justice League list of characters, since they all nothing but originations from previous comics cut and paste together!...there's no even such a thing as Justice League at all!...but yet somehow people render to its characters like something unique instead of using YOUR logic and calling everyone out by their "origination"...why's that tell me?...yeah thats right...answer is - because nobody cares or considers it< when talking about certain character!...all that is matters is, where, when and how much it's been spotted by the group of individuals on screen/comics or elsewhere...now try to deny that and tell me i'm wrong!...people judge by popularity and recognize characters accordingly! its not just MY imagination or wishful thinking! its a freaking common sense!...

#48
drunkendan said on January 12, 2013 at 9:40 a.m.

I think it is like a rule that when they announce a character who is NOT a Batman character they have to announce a Batman character. Who the hell wants Penguin!?

#49
drunkendan said on January 12, 2013 at 9:42 a.m.

Btw there are 16 characters currently confirmed...7 of them are friggin Batman characters. Can we just change DC universe to BC (Batman Comics) universe and be done with it. Or give your other characters some limelight

Detective Comics 610, Ode to a Penguin

3 paste empty, Batmans chars is over, dont believe in Penguin adition, Martian and Robin are shown on collector edition, Robin is the last Batman char, he suggested Black Adam in twitter. The Martian is very important for this game.

Guys... seriously, friggin penguin's folder & DLC folder are empty. -_-

#61
streetfighter_x_tekken said on January 13, 2013 at 4 p.m.

I don't understand why is everyone surprised about seeing so many Batman Universe characters in this game!
Batman is DC's main hero! No other character had more comic books or movies than him.
Green Lantern will sure make it, so his fans need not to worry. Not sure about Black Adam or Shazam, it will depend entirely on the game's story. One of them will make it for sure.
Darkseid or Doomsday will also make it in the roster, DC wants these villains promoted, the Joker will be the mastermind but he will need to ally or use others in order to achieve his plan.

PS: in my oppinion Penguin will add variety, no other character is like him. I also believe Aquaman will be playable (from start or as DLC) even if there are not many people that like him.
