Robert Englund-Voiced Scarecrow Gets an ‘Injustice 2’ Trailer

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.

    TBH those sack masks freak me out. One of the few things that give me the willies just seeing one.

    This actually makes me interested in this game again after I lost it when I realized Raven wouldn’t be returning.
    Robert also voiced Felix Faust in the Justice League animated series (awesomely too) for those interested.

      And Riddler in The Batman cartoon of the mid 2000’s that wasn’t Brave and the Bold.

      Why do I feel like Combs Scarecrow is a tad racist? Not saying what Combs did or said but still he just looks like a racist figure. Plus his hideous face actually gives me a little bit of a shudder not enough to scare me but still eww.

      This Scarecrow on the other hand is really fucking creepy and it’s actually the first time I’ve been a little scared by him. I guess it might have something to do with Englund voicing Dr. Crane which adds and even scarier perspective of the character. Either way I’m stoked to play him because that Sickle looks like a load of fun to play with (where can I get one lol).

        Then I guess the animators offended a whole group of old timey Western preachers… which is what his design is based on.

        • Sasori

          Seems about right At least it isn’t like the original animated series look that was a ripoff of oz’s scarecrow

  • Jada Maes

    I love that it shows his appearance and attacks are based off of his fear toxin instead of making him supernatural. Robert Englund is PeRfEcT.
