Ed Boon Teases Next Injustice 2 Fighter With Mortal Kombat Movie Reference
NetherRealm Studios has now announced all three of Injustice 2‘s first Fighter Pack DLC and with that begins the speculation on who will join DC’s super-powered fight club next. A few contenders have come forward in recent weeks including Aquaman villain Black Manta, but no official word has been announced. Now, it seems NetherRealm boss Ed Boon may have teased the next Injustice 2 fighter on Twitter, using a reference from the laughingly bad film Mortal Kombat: Annihilation of all things.
Annihilation came out back in 1997, marking nearly 20 years since it came out in theaters, but it’s doubtful Boon was referencing the film to celebrate its anniversary. A screencap featuring one of the movie’s many villains, Cyrax, was tweeted out by the NetherRealm boss featuring a single eye-roll emoji as a caption.
The cyborg character can be seen in the image lying on the ground in defeat, while a magical dragon tattoo springs to life from its body (it’s a weird movie). On the surface, this could mean Cyrax is up to be an Injustice 2 fighter in the near future, but given Boon’s playful trolling nature in the past, this could also just be a joke.

Injustice 2 has been enjoying great success since it first released in May and has continued to receive warm reception into this year’s San Diego Comic Con, where DC hero / Teen Titans member Starfire was shown off for the first time. Not long after, a potential Bizarro premier skin was also revealed by boss Boon in another playfully cheeky tweet. It’s officially up in the air what’s next for the fighting game, but at least we’ll have what Boon described as the “biggest wow” to look forward to down the line.
Injustice 2 is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and mobile devices. What do you think? Would Injustice 2 benefit from another Mortal Kombat character joining the roster, or should devs focus on adding more DC heroes? Do you secretly love Mortal Kombat: Annihilation?
