He may never play Freddy again, but this softens the blow a bit.
Robert Englund officially becomes part of the DC Universe in the upcoming Mortal Kombat-style game Injustice 2, which will feature the iconic horror actor as the voice of Scarecrow. From the game’s official bio, Scarecrow “plays on the fears of the unknown to inflict terror on his victims” – sounds a bit like Freddy, doesn’t it? Needless to say, Englund is PERFECT for the role.
We bring this up again today because Injustice 2 just released an official “Introducing Scarecrow” video, featuring tons of gameplay footage of him kicking Batman’s ass. Enjoy!
Injustice 2 arrives on May 16th.
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.
