Green Arrow Joins "Injustice: Gods Among Us"

Following the news of a comic book spin-off for "Injustice: Gods Among Us," NetherRealm Studios' brawler video game pitting the greatest DC characters against one another in a battle for dominance, EW.com has posted the first trailer and image featuring a brand new character: Green Arrow.

Oliver Queen joins the ranks of "Injustice" alongside already revealed characters Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Catwoman, Nightwing, Harley Quinn, Cyborg and Solomon Grundy. The trailer features Ollie exhibiting a number of fighting tactics, including trick arrows (both freeze and explosive), using his bladed bow as a close-range weapon and a victory cinematic of Green Arrow shooting off a fireworks arrow.

The inclusion of Green Arrow shouldn't come as much of a surprise to fans. Not only has Oliver Queen been a part of many incarnations of the Justice League over the years, but Warner Bros' upcoming drama based on the character, "Arrow," is set to premiere on the CW this Wednesday. while no further details were revealed about the character, more news will undoubtedly come as "Injustice: Gods Among Us" approaches its April 2013 release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
