Though we’ll have to wait a week to learn who these characters are, Ed Boon did leave a few hints. A Neogaf user listened to an interview on EPNdotTV where Boon was asked what comic books to read to information on the upcoming characters. He responded with The Killing Joke and Flashpoint. It sounds likely that The Joker will be making his return. As for Flashpoint, it could be a number of different characters, including Reverse-Flash, Booster Gold, Kid Flash, or someone else.
Injustice 2 is out sometime in 2017 on PS4 and Xbox One. The already confirmed characters are Aquaman, Atrocitus, Batman, Flash, Gorilla Grodd, Supergirl, Superman, and Wonder Woman.
