So, in the latest episode of Analog, I took a shot in the dark and said that the new Joker is actually Jason Todd, to troll the rumormongers of the DC Entertainment Universe. Then, less than 12 hours later, they announce Jason Todd as a DLC character. Thanks, Netherealms!
Now, my theory still isn’t dead yet. Perhaps he’s a DLC character because his moveset would obviously be different as Red Hood. There’s also his mannerisms in this trailer, which look very similar to the Joker in Injustice 2, as well. Also, the inclusion of Starfire, to fill out the Outlaws, and Mortal Kombat’s Sub-Zero are both a fun way to add some interesting characters to the game. Either way, announcing the first DLC pack is a smart way to drum up a bit more pre-order support for the title, before it releases on May 16th.
