All of DC's best heroes in "DC Universe Online" video game

With the exception of Christopher Nolan’s rebooted Batman franchise, Marvel has consistently kicked the everliving shit out of DC’s comic universe in film format. The Bryan Singer X-Men (1 & 2, not that Brett Ratner abomination) and Ironman alone slay the best of what DC’s managed to come out with, and that doesn’t even count Ray Stevenson’s incarnation of The Punisher (yeah, I know most people hated the movie but they’re wrong). If DC has any hope of taking Marvel’s shine, it’s through video games — and if this 5 minute CG trailer for the upcoming DC Universe Online video-game means anything, they just might succeed. Featuring some of DC’s best characters, including Wonder Woman, Metallo, The Green Lantern, Giganta, Black Adam, Batman, The Flash, Cyborg, Lex Luthor, Poison Ivy, Artemis, The Joker, Harley Queen, Superman, Brainiac and best of all Deathstroke, this could be the comic book video game nerds worldwide have been waiting for breathlessly. Of course, it could also be just another immaculately produced trailer for what ends up being a sub-par, cliched, shitacular gameplay experience, but I’m going to hold out hope that it’s even a percentage as cool as the trailer below…
