He's joined in the DLC pack by Aquaman's arch-enemy Black Manta and Mortal Kombat's Raiden. Although no release date has been announced, the first gameplay of Black Manta will be unveiled Sunday at 4 p.m. ET on NetherRealm's Twitch channel.

The reveal trailer, released this morning, depicts the beaten bodies of the previous three fighters added to the game, and then introduces Raiden, Black Manta and Hellboy, whose closing line, "This just got a whole lot more interesting," couldn't be more apt.

Fighter Pack 2 featuring Black Manta, Raiden and Hellboy will also be available to players who purchased the Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition. At least one more Fighter Pack featuring three new characters is expected to be released.
