A screen spotted in a recent Injustice 2 trailer reveals that Mr. Freeze is showing up in the brawler, but not in the manner that fans may have hoped.
The trailer in question covered Injustice 2‘s gear system, breaking down how players can evolve their favorite fighter through progression. At one point in the trailer (around 2:10), a list of alternate skins for Captain Cold is visible, in which viewers can see an icon that looks just like the icy Batman villain.
It may not be the Mr. Freeze we wanted, but Captain Cold does at least shoot things with a big ice gun, so it’s a start.
Other characters will also be represented only through another fighter’s skin, such as Flash turning into Reverse Flash, Supergirl being reused for Power Girl, and Hal Jordan’s Green Lantern becoming John Stewart’s Green Lantern. When this batch of “premier skins” was first officially announced, Netherrealm noted that they included new voice and dialogue. It’s reasonable to expect the Captain Cold to Mr. Freeze swap will feature the same, and fans may be seeing even more of these premier skin characters down the line.
Injustice 2 is slated to launch May 16th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a mobile version expected to drop around the same time.
