New 'Injustice 2' trailer features The Flash and his blinding moves

Things are getting more exciting as the release of NetherRealm's "Injustice 2" video game draws nearer, with the developers releasing a new trailer featuring the fastest superhero in the DC universe.

The one minute and 29-second-long video focused on "The Flash" in some gameplay action, showcasing some of his moves against different villains in the upcoming sequel to the "Injustice: Gods Among Us" game. The first scene pitted the velvet-clad hero against his monstrous nemesis, Gorilla Grodd, who became a recipient of his lightning-quick strikes that come from both ends of the screen. Another scene had him facing Captain Cold who he beats to a pulp with a series of knees, elbows, and punches.

Furthermore, he can also be seen throwing a lightning bolt as a projectile and spinning into a tornado that threw his opponents off their feet. For his finishing move, The Flash grabbed Grodd and took him for a run back into a different time, particularly into the time of the pharaohs and on to the era of the dinosaurs, before taking him back to the present where he is slammed against other self from a different time. The move clearly depicted the superheroes ability to time travel through his god-like speed.

"Once known as the fastest man alive, Barry Allen has hung up his boots in public shame after defecting from the Regime," said The Flash's official character description. "However as a new enemy threatens the innocent, the Flash returns to action, determined to redeem himself," it further stated.

Apart from the new video, NetherRealm also tweeted the return of the next "Watchtower" broadcast on April 12, Wednesday. The post had the words "Never FEAR," which has led to online speculations that it may have something to do with one of "Injustice 2's" villains, Scarecrow.

"Injustice 2" is slated for release on May 16 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms.
