The tales of Batman and Superman have seen hundreds of iterations over the years, but none are as important to the fighting game community than the Injustice series where we'll soon be able to enjoy the story from a bit of a different perspective.

DC announced that their next animated movie project is an adaptation of Injustice: Gods Among Us, which will likely release in the near future.

Details surrounding the film are scarce at the moment, as its existence was revealed via press release that a trailer for Injustice will be included as a bonus feature on the Blu-ray set of Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two as reported by IGN.

Since the new animated Batman flick is scheduled to be released in July, DC will likely show off more information about the Injustice movie at that time as well.

It's been four years since Injustice 2 launched from NetherRealm Studios, and while rumors have swirled about a third fighting game, all we know is that the developer was hiring for potential future entries in the series.

Injustice: Gods Among Us first hit the scene in 2013 where it quickly became a best-seller and spawned multiple comic book runs taking place before and after the video games.

The latest of those comics is Injustice: Year Zero, which launched as a new prequel last year and further fanned the flames of speculation for Injustice 3.

Injustice's world is a seperate reality in the DC mythos where Superman has taken absolute control over Earth following the deaths of Lois Lane, his unborn child and destruction of Metropolis thanks to the Joker.

The Justice League is essentially split in two with characters like Wonder Woman joining Superman's regime while others teamed up with Batman as part of the resistance.

Whether the new animated movie is set to follow the events of the first game, the comics or something entirely new remains to be seen though we should be learning a lot more in the coming months.
