Early last month, an article published in @Gamer magazine revealed that Shazam would be a playable character in the new fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and now we have our first look. Hit the jump to check out Captain Marvel.

What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat? From the indomitable DC Comics and the makers of the definitive fighting game franchise Mortal Kombat comes Injustice: Gods Among Us, a bold fighting game featuring a large cast of favorite DC Comics icons. Set in a world where the lines between good and evil are blurred, players will experience heroes and villains engaging in epic battles on a massive scale. A deep, original story compliments the fighting action that pits many of the great heroes and villains from the DC universe against each other -- Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and many others lose their allegiances and fight for Injustice!
Release Date: April 16th!

What the hell is with that costume? It's so damn busy! LOL

Nice, I like it. Wish they'd go with him for a live action film. That would be amazing.
Vadakin - 2/5/2013, 12:03 PM
I will never call him "Shazam." He is Captain Marvel and always will be. Screw you New 52!

This games looks meh to me. When I first read about this game, and they said the environment would be interactive, I was hoping for something like what they did for Marvel: Rise of the Imperfects. I really liked the way the vs mode was in that game. This is basically Mortal Kombat with DC heroes. Also, I don't really care most of the costumes.
unknownfacts - 2/5/2013, 12:05 PM
Care more about how a character plays then how they look.
Paragon79 - 2/5/2013, 12:06 PM
Yea, changing his name to Shazam from Captain Marvel was a bad move in my opinion.
PsyGuy - 2/5/2013, 12:07 PM
Just no.
BrosephStalin - 2/5/2013, 12:10 PM
@Net Oh man! Is it 1995 again?
Spidey91 - 2/5/2013, 12:11 PM
Shazam for Assasin's Creed 4! :P
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 2/5/2013, 12:14 PM
Looks sweet but this game ain't doin it for me. They tried to stretch too far from the Mortal Kombat games which was a bad move.
MB007 - 2/5/2013, 12:18 PM
Looks pretty awesome, i'm not really familiar with Shazam, but i love the armour-suit thing they're going for in this game!
Havensent - 2/5/2013, 12:21 PM
I don't like it. What's with all of the modern armor like designs on all of the characters? Only Batman uses that.
MutantEquality - 2/5/2013, 12:21 PM
I can't wait to see the downloadable costumes because right now it looks like "DC Armored Adventures"

OK with character if there is OG skin of "Captain Marvel".

Hoodie? Let's put a hoodie on Supes, Wondy, Spidey, Hulk & Cap . . . looks redick don't it?
Stumblin - 2/5/2013, 12:44 PM
I like the direction but he looks goofy as hell, the lighting inside the lighting bolt graphic is weird.
Nomadic1 - 2/5/2013, 12:54 PM
Well, the costume is better than this

CavEl - 2/5/2013, 12:56 PM
@ Vadakin - Not the new 52's fault, DC gave up the rigts to the Captain Marvel because Marvel was crying over it.
MisterBabadook - 2/5/2013, 12:57 PM
Characters like Superman or "Shazam" don't need armor, at all.
tron21full - 2/5/2013, 12:58 PM
awesome. i wanted him to be playable and he is
KINGPEN266 - 2/5/2013, 1:03 PM
Jollem - 2/5/2013, 1:21 PM
swamp thing. yes
blackagar94 - 2/5/2013, 1:25 PM
So heroes can't have style ? just because they don't need an armor doesn't mean they don't WANT to where one.
danica2334 - 2/5/2013, 1:31 PM
Is this a combination between flash and assassin's creed ?
Stumblin - 2/5/2013, 1:40 PM
@Nomadic1, good point.
DaddyTuesday - 2/5/2013, 2:07 PM
@imadick: Couldn't agree with you any ore. The whole game is a pass for me and so are most if not all of DC comics. Something changed at DC and it wasn't for the better. After collecting for over 25 years I find the comics a pain to read adn the only good stuff (e.g. Young Justice & Green Lantern Tv shows,Batman movies)are cancelled or finished. After so many let downs by the Warner / DC partnership I have little hope Man of Steel will be any good. Just hope I'm wrong.
DrRockso - 2/5/2013, 2:19 PM
@Nomadic1 - no it isn't. Awful.
MJPETTY7 - 2/5/2013, 2:26 PM
Very cool.
hush - 2/5/2013, 2:31 PM
I like the new look and this game.
RetroFit - 2/5/2013, 2:34 PM
Why is the guy from Assassin's Creed dressed up as Shazam for Halloween??
Jollem - 2/5/2013, 3:10 PM
^you got skills
Pharaoh - 2/5/2013, 3:42 PM
They had no choice but to change his name coz Marvel was bitchin, which is a joke given they've both plagarised characters for decades *cough* Iron Man & Batman *cough*

he will always be the true Captain Marvel and a Shazam film would be awesome they had 10 years where magic was huge in cinema thanks to Harry Potter that they could of capitalised off

the 2 biggest films franchise the last decade are magic & super hero and he combines both, that plus the massive anti bullying campains the last 2 years it's insane this character hasn't been put on the big screen
Paragon79 - 2/5/2013, 3:43 PM
Froggy: that looks great. That suit looks better on him.
Grabthemcakes - 2/5/2013, 3:45 PM
Nice job Froggy! Looks great!
ROMPEORTOS - 2/5/2013, 3:47 PM
Injustice gonna be best fighting game of the year like Mortal Kombat was, this game is amazing...
ROMPEORTOS - 2/5/2013, 3:49 PM
I can understand if Marvel fans are jealous with this game...
I like Marvel vs Capcom 3 but Injustice is obviously better.
Paragon79 - 2/5/2013, 3:50 PM
Pharaoh: I don't know how true that is. Fawcett comics( which was bought by DC) created Captain Marvel many years before Marvel made their Captain Marvel. Having bought Fawcett comics, DC gained all rights and trademarks to the name. Marvel didn't have a case even if they wanted to sue for plagiarism. Truth is, Marvel(which was timely comics for a long time) plagiarized when they made their Captain Marvel.
