Well that was fast! Only days after the official gameplay trailer, which confirmed Gorilla Grodd, Atrocitus and Black Manta, we have possible confirmation that Captain Cold will join the roster for Injustice 2! While most characters confirmed for the game have been revealed in the two trailers, the Captain Cold announcement has come... from a T-Shirt?
NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon uploaded an image of himself on Twitter wearing the T-Shirt in question. On the T-shirt you can see many logos and weapons that link to various characters in the DC Universe such as; Batman's Cowl, Superman's Shield and Aquaman's Trident. While these characters have been confirmed to appear, we catch a glimpse of two items that all but confirm that Captain Cold and Doctor Fate will appear in Injustice 2!
On the bottom row of the shirt you can clearly see Doctor Fate's helmet and Captain Cold's gun! Two characters that the fans have demanded be brought in for NetherRealm's sequel will finally be debut in 2017! Amongst the excitement of Leonard Snart's possible introduction I have to wonder, could his debut lead to the inclusion of something bigger?
The Legion of Doom are coming!
The group that started the main conflict in Injustice will return and be at the centre of Injustice 2. The official gameplay trailer for Injustice 2 confirmed that Gorilla Grodd and Black Manta would appear in the game. Now, only a few days later, we have confirmation that Captain Cold will appear. This can't be a coincidence.
I believe that the Legion of Doom will have a much expanded role than last time. With Lex Luthor, Killer Frost, Sinestro (which could explain Atrocitus being in the game) Solomon Grundy and Deathstroke apart of the in-game Legion, we already have a formidable opposition. It would be great to see NetherRealm expand on a Legion vs Justice League storyline, and watch as the Legion turn the heroes against each other.
All I'm saying is, expect Cheetah to be announced in the upcoming weeks.
