To celebrate the upcoming release of Justice League, Injustice 2 is offering DC fans a way to get even more amped to see their favorite heroes on the big screen. NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive have revealed costumes and gear based on the film versions of the DC characters are now available in the fighter.

In a new trailer, seen below, players can check out the movie tie-in costumes in action, which are available for the console and mobile versions of Injustice 2. Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman will all have new gear options, but there appears to be a pretty sizable difference between what’s coming to the different versions of the game.

In particular, it appears the characters in the mobile version get much more thorough makeovers than their console counterparts. In gameplay moments from the trailer that specify the footage is from Injustice 2 mobile, for example, we see an Aquaman who looks pretty much exactly like Jason Momoa in the film. However, the Aquaman shown in the console portions looks pretty much exactly the same as always, just dressed in slightly different gear. A white guy with short blonde hair wearing Jason Momoa’s shirt doesn’t exactly look a whole lot like Jason Momoa.

It’s understandable that the more detailed models of the console version would need to stay untouched, especially given how the game’s gear system works. Still, the limitations apparently go even further than that. Players are reporting that on console Cyborg, only gets an arm cannon inspired by the character’s Justice League design. Though fans are finding a workaround that uses older gear parts and shaders to replicate the movie look, they’ve expressed some frustration they need to DIY his outfit at all.

Regardless, earning the Justice League goodies requires players to completing Multiverse challenges. Currently, fans can take on the first event in the Multiverse portal to earn gear for The Flash and Cyborg. The Flash, at least, gets a full collection of gear, consisting of the resilient frictionless sprinting boots, gauntlets, the armor of boundless speed, and ultimate speed force mask. Complete all five challenges, and you can give your Barry Allen the full movie makeover.

As these will be limited-time events, players should complete the Multiverse tasks as soon as possible. Once The Flash and Cyborg’s moments in the spotlight end, another member of the Justice League will take their place in the Multiverse. Outside of the Justice League, players can also anticipate the new fighters arriving in Fighter Pack 3, beginning with Atom on December 12th. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Enchantress will also be coming down the line as part of the same pack.

Injustice 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
