After releasing a more “friendly” trailer some time ago, now Warner Bros. released the red band trailer for their DC animated film titled Injustice. Previously a film adapted from a game Injustice: Gods Among Us it has been rated R (R-Rated) for its “bloody violence” scenes, and this new trailer is a confirmation of that.
The trailer shows Superman punching the Joker through the chest as well as several other bloody scenes not seen in the source material. For example, Superman can be seen flying straight through Solomon Grundy. In essence, this trailer shows, after the tragedy that then pushed Superman into a dangerous new mindset, the likes of Batman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman would try to stop him from turning to the dark side before being pitted against each other.
“Everyone has to make their own choice about this.”
