Oh hey! It’s another massive property inserting itself into a NetherRealm fighting game.
None other than Hellboy will be joining past film origin DLC breakthroughs like the Alien (Xenomorph), Jason, Leatherface, Predator, and Freddie, by way of Injustice 2. Just this morning the developer put out a trailer featuring his character model, as well as the announcement that Black Manta and Raiden will be coming down the pipeline as “Fighter Pack 2.” For reference Fighter Pack 1 included Red Hood, Starfire, and Sub-Zero — according to director Ed Boon, there may be at least eight characters coming, if not more, with their more “aggressive” DLC strategy.
I can’t look at Hellboy without seeing Ron Perlman (it’ll be hard to acclimate to David Harbour, I’ll tell you that much), Christopher Lambert is Raiden, and I can’t think of Black Manta without seeing him in his goofy Super Friends incarnation.
