The video game series Injustice has put together one of the most compelling and creative takes on the DC universe you'll find anywhere, and it’s coming back in a big way this year. Can DC just make this into live action, please?

The latest trailer for Injustice 2 picks up the story after Batman has emerged victorious in his battle against the Regime and a new threat arises and poses the ultimate threat to Earth. Batman is still fighting to put the world back together while others want to restore Superman's command. We get a look at Supergirl, Batman, Wonder Woman and Batman ... and even a peek at Batman and Robin mixing it up. There are also some fleeting glimpses of Bane, Poison Ivy and Brainiac.

Zack Snyder loosely drew on the games for inspiration in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but seeing the franchise back for a sequel makes you wonder just how wild this would be in live action. It looks absolutely insane to throw these characters into a blender and should make for one heck of a fun slugfest when the game arrives on May 16. It's set for release on PS4 and Xbox One.
