    Very happy with this! Her face even seems less mannish than some of the other female characters.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      IKR looking better in HD too!

    • Yep, now her face looks like if she is one of the main characters from “Sex and the City”.

      • eilegz

        and thats a good thing?

        • You tell me! (it’s not.)

          But we have to give the NRS modelers props! At least Zatanna doesn’t have a man-face, as many others accuse the other female characters for having one. Yep! She now has the face of a female person! The face of… Sarah Jessica Parker!

          • KnifeAndFork

            So….in other words, the face of a foot?

          • No, the face of a footstool! *rim shot*

      • Ryuukishi

        Well, with NR you have to take what you can get. :lol:

  • artemisthemp

    Anyone care to tell me, who Zatanna is?

    • Minos

      I saw her on the 90’s Batman Cartoon.

      She is a Magician and one of those girls who was trying to get on Batman’s pants and got ignored, her “Power” are what you would expect from a Magician act.

      But, I dont remenber the horse face.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Lol. Zatanna isnt from Batman, although she is one of the more admirable people Batman has had relations with.

        But the went with the Young Justice Zatanna lewl. So now she has relations with KnightWing instead

    • DCBlackbird

      She is the daughter of very renowned magician Zatara. She is your typical magic act except all these parlor tricks are real. She is also famous for her ability to cast spells by speaking every word in reverse example to “lock door” she would say “kcol rood”. your welcome and I epoh uoy dootsrednu

  • anthony apduhan


  • You know, her face emoting seems like if Zatanna was ripped out from the Timesplitters universe… not that there’s anything wrong with that…

  • Guest

    So the leaked info about the possible characters is not true? Does this means no Red Hood or Power Girl.

    • All leaks were dismissed. It is anyone’s guess from now on!

    • Sardorim

      Good, I didn’t want Red Hood. Red Robin or Black Bat if they were going for another Batman add, I say. Besides we already have “Nightwing” to fill in for Red Hood.

      Though no Power Girl and/or Supergirl blows.

  • DCBlackbird

    I thought Solomon Grundy didn’t fight girls lol

  • eilegz

    looks like a monkey =/ seriously

  • evilmajikman

    Omg, what happened to her nose? O_o

  • Kevin Schwarz

    Good! Just complaining about how these GUYS suck at making all GIRLS look like girls, intead they look like men.

    • To be fair, the faces of Catwoman and Wonder Woman lookslike a grown WOMAN’s. Raven’s face is no excuse, at ALL (she looks older than 50)! Batgirl, Killer Frost and Harley’s faces are fine, but Hawkgirl’s? Well, she’s an Alien, so…

      And Zatanna face now? Read my previous comments below…

      • evilmajikman

        I only agree with you about Catwoman. The only person that I could compare Wonder Woman in Injustice to is Chyna… who is considerably manly.

      • KnifeAndFork

        They look like shemales

    • DCBlackbird

      I see a slight resemblance to Sarah Jessica Parker… least from the thumbnail. They aren’t very good at getting men either

  • Slayven19

    Most favorite DC character ever confirmed finally. I knew she was one of the characters long time ago due to the EVO leak. I hope zatanna has at least 2 other costumes because I want her first costume without boots and regular heels and her blue superhero one.

  • Sergio Briceño

    I didn’t really dislike the female faces before. I mean they aren’t pretty, but I don’t really think they look like men. Not even after you guys brought it into light.

    About the reveal… I love Zatanna, but I love Red Hood more. But I admit that for the sake of variety they (or we) made a good call “casting” her and it shows with her moveset. What I didn’t like though was the Dr. Fate like ultimate attack. It’s not that I dislike Dr. Fate, it all just looked unimpressive and short when compared to other ultimates. But it was flashy and with that character maybe that is what they were going for.

    • KnifeAndFork

      Is it really that hard to design proper appealing looking character models these days though? Everyone and their grandmother can do it on their own computer using whatever latest software is out.

  • KnifeAndFork

    Why all that hype and build up and ‘clues’? Was it really that special of an announcement?


  • Sardorim

    I really wish they could improve on making female faces….

    Oh well, at least she’s a far better add than Barbara the worst Batgirl.

    • DCBlackbird

      I’m more of Cassandra Cain person myself

      • Raoni Marques

        Cassandra was definitely badass

        • DCBlackbird

          no doubt about it

  • Dexward

    Why does Zatanna look like Morticia Addams?

    • That… would be a compliment, actually.

  • cedx123

    I believed in the magic and it came true!! So excited for Zatanna

  • AverageGamers

    Yaaay for Zatanna… Oucch for the design o_O… Someone really needs to make direct complain about this (female design) to NetherRealm, as I said before… just look at Rocksteady’s Arkham, their female can be 3D but pleasant to look at the same time. The females in Marvel vs Capcom looks nice as well…

    Oh well, at least we finally have more variety (Batgirl was essentially Batman, Zod & Martian were essentially Superman)

    Aaanyway, this release is still not debunking the previous leaked rumor (which leaked that the 4 DLC would be MM, SZ, RH, PG). People only ‘assumed’ SZ stands as Sub-Zero, but it can also goes for ‘Sorcerer Zatanna’. Let’s just see what the next 2 would be, to be frank I won’t be surprised to see Red Hood as one of it considering the next 2 would definitely be villains… (otherwise the selection screen will be unbalance, right?). Or it can also be 1 hero + 1 villain if Scorpion is migrated to the villain side.

  • Ronldbx6

    I thought they said the next character would be the most fan requested. Not that she doesn’t look great and all but I didn’t hear anyone ever say that they wanted her until the clues started to come out.

    • leingod

      I thought it was gonna be PowerGirl when they mentioned that.

    • Slayven19

      People have requested her since the beginning and she won the poll that ed boon put out. The one he took martain manhunter off because he knew that he’d win. So yeah she is the most fan requested because she was #1 in the polls with static and red hood not far behind.

  • leingod

    The guys at NetherRealm are awesome at most of what they do, but they kinda suck at female face modeling. Well, at least Zatanna looks fun to play as.

  • After watching this video I really want them to stick Dr. Fate in the game now.

  • LaserVision

    All this talk about Netherelm’s female man faces is completely justified. One of the reasons why I’ve always preferred the art in Japanese games is they always try to get the faces right and have been since the PS1 days.

    Whether it’s the attention to detail or the fact they don’t try to cross the uncanny valley, this is where they’ve always succeeded. If Capcom or ASW made a DC game it would probably look just like the comic books.

  • Celiacus

    Why are most western devs so horrible at designing women?

  • Hm..this injustice game is all about dlc.
