Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios just made an announcement earlier this morning that they are working on a new title for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. Injustice: Gods Among Us is a new fighting game from the creators of Mortal Kombat that takes place within the DC Universe.

Some of the characters that have been confirmed via the game’s website (www.injustice.com) are Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash and Wonder Woman. NetherRealm Studios is no stranger to utilizing the DC license (thanks to MK vs DC) so it should be interesting to see what they have up their sleeve for this upcoming title.
