"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Comic Books, Film
To commemorate the third anniversary of the video game Injustice: Gods Among Us, Samsung and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment are reaching for the Batphone. Or a Batphone, at least.
The two companies have partnered for the release the Galaxy S7 Edge Injustice Edition, a sleek, black version of Samsung’s Android phone that features gold detailing and the iconic Bat-symbol on the back.
Warner Bros. Games has officially announced the “Batman: Return to Arkham” remaster collection, which will include updated versions of the acclaimed “Batman: Arkham Asylum” and “Batman: Arkham City” games.
Releasing July 29 on PS4 and Xbox One, “Return to Arkham” is priced at $49.99 USD/£39.99. Check out the announcement trailer below:
Supergirl is flying into LEGO Dimensions.
According to BrickSet, the instructions for a Supergirl minifigure appeared Thursday on LEGO.com before they were quickly removed. They reveal a gold base, instead of the typical blue for Dimensions figures, leading to speculation that Supergirl might be an exclusive promo.
Quickly catching up to an online link, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has officially announced LEGO Dimensions, a new video game that allows players to mix and match characters from different universes, including DC Comics, The LEGO Movie, The Lord of the Rings and Back to the Future.
Arriving Sept. 27, it’s a “toy-to-life” console game, similar to the popular Skylanders and Disney Infinity. However, in this case, players won’t purchase characters but instead LEGO sets that they’ll build into characters, vehicles and devices that can be introduced into the game with the Toy Pad.
If all the promotional material for Mortal Kombat X has left you wondering what happened to all the blood and gore, this trailer is for you.
Unveiled this morning by Maxim Russia and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the Shaolin trailer turns the spotlight on Kung Lao, Liu Kang and newcomer Kung Jin, and doesn’t hold back on any of the decapitations, crushed skulls or bloody throat-punches fans have come to expect from the franchise. Needless to say, this probably isn’t safe for viewing at work.
Funko has announced Pop! Heroes: Arkham Asylum, its new series of vinyl figures based on Warner Bros. Interactive entertainment’s hit action-adventure video game Batman: Arkham Asylum. The collection features Batman, the Joker, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Killer Croc.
After a little social-media teasing, GameStop has announced the Red Hood Story Pack DLC will be available exclusively to customers who preorder Batman: Arkham Knight from the retailer.
Developed by Rocksteady for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, Batman: Arkham Knight is billed as the explosive finale to the hit action-adventure video game series that launched in 2009 with Batman: Arkham Asylum. (For a complete rundown, read CBR’s coverage of the closed-door demo at E3 2014.)
Courtesy of All Games Beta, new screenshots from Batman: Arkham Origins confirm the inclusion of the Batcave — at least in some form — in the upcoming prequel from WB Games Montreal. Neoseeker notes that these images appear to be from an in-game cutscene, so it remains unclear whether the Batcave will be an actual setting.
Arriving Oct. 25 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360, Batman: Arkham Origins is set before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, and features a young, unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early crime-fighting career.
