Injustice 2 announcement trailer released, set for 2017 on PS4 and Xbox One, Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd also confirmed as characters

After yesterday's surprise reveal at Injustice 2 being an actual project, the InjusticeGame YouTube channel has graced us with something very special indeed - an announcement trailer.

You can find some screengrabs from the trailers revealing four veteran characters from the last game, as well as one brand new entrant (who happens to me in my personal top 3 of DC characters, by the way) right here.

Rumor: Injustice 2 potentially confirmed by leaked promotional poster

Updated: Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios Ed Boon has posted an interesting tweet on his personal Twitter account regarding GameStop. It seems to point to the game store leaking the image and adding more credibility to the image.

Earlier: We've been talking about a potential sequel to NetherRealm Studios' Injustice: Gods Among Us quite a bit this week. There have been several rumors and potential hints at a second part in the fighting game series.

This morning, an image of what appears to be an official Injustice 2 poster began circulating on social media.

Is this the first Injustice 2 poster? image #1

From what we can see, this looks to be the real thing. If it is a fake, however, it's a rather convincing one, and we've seen people go to great lengths to fake screenshots and promotional artwork for content that never came to be.

Several days before E3 2014, a poster for the at the time unannounced Mortal Kombat X also leaked, leading us to believe that this might be history repeating itself, but we can't say for certain.

As soon as we have confirmation that this poster is 100% real, we will be updating this story. Stay tuned.

Ed Boon's Twitter drops even more hints at Injustice sequel

While we still haven't received an official announcement yet, a sequel to 2013's Injustice: Gods Among Us is looking more and more imminent by the day.

We've already seen an unoffical claim that says the title will be announced at E3 this year, and is expected to be released by May of 2017. Intrigue was further piqued when we caught wind of Samsung's upcoming Injustice-themed phone.

On top of all this, NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon has been continuously teasing fans, as he's very apt to do, with his recent Twitter activity. The director of the first Injustice has changed his profile picture to the "II" you saw in this story's banner, and has paired it with some curious comments.

Boon also recently posted a few DC related images and topics, all the more promoting the idea that NRS has DC on the brain.

Samsung to release Injustice: Gods Among Us themed S7 phone; Is this another hint at a sequel?

Samsung is releasing a special, Injustice: Gods Among Us themed Galaxy S7 Edge soon.

The sleek new mobile phone features a golden Batman symbol on the back, an on-screen dial pad that seems to resemble the caped crusader's armor design, and more. It also seems to come equipped with the Injustice: Gods Among Us mobile game pre-installed.

What's interesting about this themed product is the fact that it's promoting an app that was a little over three years ago. Generally speaking, products such as these tend to coincide with upcoming releases.

As of late, rumors about an Injustice 2 have been circulating. From what we've heard, the game will be announced during or close to E3 this year and will see an official release in May 2017.

These are just rumors, of course, but it is certainly peculiar that Samsung is releasing an Injustice-themed phone so close to E3. According to the official Samsung website, the new S7 will be available on June 13th, 2016.

Below are a handful of photos of the new Injustice S7, and you can see an unboxing of it after the jump.

Rumors circulating say Injustice 2 announcement expected around E3 next month

French website Gameblog released an interesting article yesterday claiming that Injustice 2 would be announced in June either at E3 or in the days before it.

Things don't stop at just an announcement date however, as Gameblog claims the title will be released in May of 2017. If true, that would give NetherRealm Studios a good chunk of time to further their development of Mortal Kombat XL with a possible Kombat Pack 3 should they choose to do so.

NetherRealm's Creative Director, Ed Boon, has teased fans of the series with the possibility of a sequel for some time, sending out fairly particular messages on his Twitter like the one below:

Leather, spandex, Vampy Bit Me and Playboy; this cosplay video shoot is beyond sexy

I'm going to start this off by stating flat out that this is not a nude photo shoot. Playboy is actually shying from their old ways, and doing away with nudity in their printed publications.

That said, Vampy Bit Me has teamed up with Playboy for an oh-so enticing photo shoot featuring her cosplays of a couple fighting game characters.

A very beautiful Psylocke, who appeared in Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and Nightwing, from Injustice: Gods Among Us, are both represented by Vampy in this beautiful shoot. Below are a few snapshots of both characters.

CVS2, Rival Schools, Third Strike, MVC2 and a LOT more; this epic, blast from the past combo video features 60 different fighting games

Scrolling through our more recent posts, you may notice we're on something of a Street Fighter 5 binge. While we're absolutely loving playing, discussing and delving into the new game, a little variety is always nice.

We use the term "little" very loosely, as the video we have here for you features no less than 60 different fighting games, (yes SF5 is in there as well,) from over the years.

The nostalgia you'll get from seeing a few of these titles is reason enough to give this combo collection a watch. Take a look at this Chun-Li sequence from Tatsunoko vs. Capcom... which does over 25 billion damage:

Cammy, Chun-Li, Kitana, and more look beautiful as paper sculptures

We've featured numerous artists here on EventHubs, yet I don't think we've ever seen something quite like this.

Belinda Rodriguez has created a handful of lovely pieces featuring Cammy, Chun-Li, Kitana, and Catwoman, but instead of ink or graphite, Belinda's medium is paper. Each of these sculptures is constructed using different colored paper that's cut, crunched, twirled, and folded to produce some very nice effects.

Iron Man takes on Lex Luthor in the latest Death Battle! Which suit-bearing billionare will survive their explosive fight to the death?

We've got the Armored Avenger, you may recognize him from Marvel vs Capcom, going one on one with Superman's arch nemesis, Lex Luthor, in a Death Battle!

Wiz and Boomstick break down both combatants, usually giving us at least one nugget of information we didn't know previously in the process, and then pit them against each other in a fantasy duel.

If there's a wild card in this one, it's probably that Lex is armed with alien technology. Though Iron Man has dealt with gods and aliens before, "alien technology" is a pretty broad descriptor and could sway the battle depending on the specifics.
