A couple of weeks ago, reports went out across the web that the next DLC character has been teased for Injustice 2 by NetherRealm Studios’ creative director Ed Boon. The character being teased was Black Manta, who is shown to left of the shadowy outlined image you can see below.
Since then, the Xbox One Store has seemingly leaked who the next character to be added to the roster might be, and it is indeed Black Manta unsurprisingly. Though the following ad doesn’t actually show the character, the text below clearly states “Fight as Black Manta in Injustice 2.”
Black Manta is likely to be the first character to be announced after the DLC Fighter Pack 1 has been fully released. So far, we’ve seen Red Hood and Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat added to the growing roster, with the third and final addition Starfire yet to have a release date announced.
The outlined image was always going to be a massive giveaway, given the massive helmet and tubes that are on show. There is still no news as to when he will be released, and there has yet to be an official announcement from NetherRealm Studios as to whether it is him or not. But with the evidence gathered so far, plus this leak, its a pretty safe bet that Aquaman’s arch enemy will be making his way into Injustice 2.
