Warner Bros. and NetherRealm confirmed just yesterday that Green Arrow would be playable in the upcoming DC fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us. And before we've even had time to speculate who would be revealed next, NetherRealm creative director and Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon is already spilling the beans. Yes, Injustice will be getting Green Lantern and Joker.
Both are pretty obvious candidates, and no one ever doubted these two wouldn't be in the game. The confirmation comes via Twitter, where Boon retweeted another post and added a simple "Yup!"
"Duh" is the word that comes to mind, but that works too. So will Mark Hamill be returning to voice Joker? Though many assumed he'd be retiring after Arkham City after a remark about it being his "last hurrah," Hamill lent his voice to DC Universe Online, and he confirmed later (also on Twitter) that he didn't mean to say he'd retired, only that the Batman game would be difficult to top.
Color us relieved. Though John Di Maggio has been doing an excellent job (check out Batman: Under the Red Hood), few can top the Hamill laugh.
