See Joker Fry Robin in Latest 'Injustice 2' Trailer

Superman and Green Lantern get a kicking too

Warner Bros.

The Joker is back, and he's had a makeover since Injustice: Gods Among Us. Think more of a Jared Leto going full method, with a touch of emo. The new trailer shows us some of his powers, his massive knife and an impressive move featuring an electric chair and some dynamite.

DC fighting game Injustice 2 is a follow up to 2013's Injustice: Gods Among Us, which had a crazy plot that include trans-dimensional duplicates and nuclear weaponry. The sequel will continue the story set out by Gods Among Us, with new playable characters from the DC Universe like Cheetah, Supergirl, Blue Beetle and the super villain Gorilla Grodd.

"Though killed by Superman, the Joker continues to haunt the lives of all those touched by his madness," says developer NetherRealm Studios. "By destroying Metropolis, he set the events in motion which made enemies of Superman and Batman. If he were alive to see the chaos he’d created, he would surely be smiling."

Injustice 2 will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 16.
