Recently announced sequel Injustice 2 will not include fatalities, series creator and creative director Ed Boon confirmed in a new interview. The 2013 original also did not have the ultra-gory finishing moves from the Mortal Kombat series, which is also made by NetherRealm.
Boon revealed the detail in an interview with IGN. Additionally, Boon shared an image on Twitter of an Injustice 2 t-shirt that might have clues about Injustice 2’s roster.

As Eventhubs points out, the shirt contains what appears to be Captain Cold’s gun, Doctor Fate’s mask, and Harley Quinn’s hammer, among other things. This might suggest that those characters will appear in the fighting game.
The first gameplay footage for Injustice 2 came online yesterday, showcasing an array of new Super moves, including Batman shooting Superman with the Batplane and Aquaman feeding Gorilla Grodd to a pretty big shark at the trailer’s conclusion. Some characters were shown donning the armor first seen in the announcement trailer, but it’s still not clear how it works–whether it’s part of the wager-based Clash system or optional skins is still up in the air.
Boon has said that Injustice 2 will have a bigger roster of characters than the first game, including “a lot of new faces” and “a lot of unexpected stuff.” He added that we’ll see more at E3 next week.
