The final chapter of Injustice 2‘s ongoing story trailer series, Shattered Alliances, will arrive this Thursday, April 20th.
The announcement tweet also showed who we’ll see when the full trailer drops: Superman villain Brainiac, previously confirmed as the game’s big bad. His official art provides the next piece of an ongoing mural, depicting Injustice 2‘s heroes and villains locked in an epic brawl.

Then again, there’s a chance this tweet harbors a secret clue for an even more interesting development. You may have noticed, as we did, that the tweet actually mentions “Braniac.” Sure, it could be a simple typo, but it might also be our first clue at the arrival of a new character powered by, obsessed with, or in some way related to bran. Just in case, I created my own mockup of this Braniac:
While the Shattered Alliances trailers have generally been focused primarily on story, but there’s a chance we’ll get some early info about the fighting style of Brainiac (or Braniac). If not, we’ll likely learn more soon enough.
After all, Injustice 2 has been coming in fast with character spotlights recently. This week, NetherRealm has already provided a close look at another of the game’s playable villains, Poison Ivy. The trailer offered some insights into the flora-themed fighter’s style.
Injustice 2 launches on May 16th on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
