A new superhero has been added to the Injustice 2 roster, as you already deduced.

The video above for Injustice 2 showing off martial arts badass Black Canary is from IGN which was given early access to the trailer.

NetherRealm has also updated the official website with character information on Bane, Brainiac, Poison Ivy and Robin who was revealed a couple of weeks ago.

A character profile for Black Canary wasn’t available on the website as of press time. Like most DC characters, her history is rather varied depending upon the decade. Many know her to be connected to the Green Arrow both in a professional and romantic sense. After the 1983 retroactive continuity change, she was also her own mother.

The game will have a multiplayer beta as previously announced and if you have already signed up, you should check your inbox.

Injustice 2 releases on May 16 for PS4 and Xbox One.

A PC version of the fighting game is being skipped this time out.
