Injustice is a 2021 American animated superhero film inset on an alternate Earth in which the Joker tricks Superman into killing Lois Lane.
Directed by Matt Peters (Justice League Dark: Apokolips War) from a script written by Ernie Altbacker (Batman: Hush). Produced by James Krieg, Rick Morales and Ian Rodgers. Executive produced by Sam Register.
The Warner Bros. Animation, DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment production features a voice cast that includes Kevin Pollak as Joker, Justin Hartley as Superman, and Anson Mount as Batman. Other DC characters featured in the movie include Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Killer Croc, Harley Quinn, Aquaman, Nightwing, Captain Atom, and Mirror Master.
Inspired by Injustice: Gods Among Us, and the best-selling DC graphic novel based on the video game, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One by Tom Taylor, the animated film finds an alternate world gone mad – where The Joker has duped Superman into killing Lois Lane, sending the Man of Steel on a deadly rampage.
Now unhinged, Superman decides to take control of the Earth for humanity’s own good. Determined to stop him, Batman creates a team of like-minded, freedom-fighting heroes. But when superheroes go to war, can the world survive?”
” …seriously great and one of the best DC animated films in a long time. Even though it doesn’t hit quite as hard as the story from the video game, it’s nevertheless a bold and unsettling story of how far one superhero will go to obtain peace in the world […] I would’ve liked to have gone a bit deeper into Superman’s thoughts here because they definitely aren’t as well-realized as they were in the game.” Caillou Pettis Movie Reviews
“Due to the abundance of superheroes, there is always something happening on the screen and in terms of animations and action there is little to fault. I only wish the story was a little less rushed and better constructed. As a result, it ultimately remains a somewhat confused and emotionless whole, which will not stay with you for very long.” Seal_Team1138 [translated from Dutch]
The R-rated Injustice movie is released on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and Digital on October 19, 2021.
