Nobody has more fun being bad than Robert Englund, whose Freddy Krueger took more pleasure in slaying victims than any other horror icon. It’s a sense of pleasure that DC villain Scarecrow also derives from tormenting and torturing his prey, so it seems rather fitting that Englund would play the character. And indeed he did provide the voice for Scarecrow in Injustice 2!
A new trailer for Injustice 2, set for release on May 16th, highlights the video game sequel’s villains, and it gives you your first taste of Englund as Scarecrow. Check it out below.
Injustice 2 continues the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman’s regime. In the midst of the chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s existence at risk.This long hard fought battle will end friendships, form new ones, and have more enemies.
The cast also includes Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator) as Brainiac, along with Laura Bailey, George Newbern, Kevin Conroy, Neal McDonough, Tara Strong, Phil LaMarr and Grey DeLisle.
