Injustice: Gods Among Us

In case you haven't heard, Nether Realm Studios, who you may remember from a little game called Mortal Kombat, is making a new fighter, this time set in the DC universe. But instead of focusing like Mortal Kombat does on extreme, over the top violence, Injustice will focus on crazy comic book style action. For example, instead of a brutal x-ray attack, a full super meter will grant a super move like the Flash running all the way around the earth for a super speed punch, or Super Man punching someone into space, then slamming them back down to Earth. The other thing they're changing is that now, there are interactive stages, instead of just backgrounds. For example, in the Batcave, someone can press a button that makes the Batmobile shoot missiles at the other player. There are also multiple stages in each one. By that I mean that there are things like in Metropolis, the action starts out on the street, but it's possible to launch the other character through a building onto a rooftop, and continue the action there. So far, this looks like it will be one of the better comic book games in a long time. But you should watch the trailer yourself.
Besides the characters shown here, gameplay footage was released for Cyborg and Nightwing, and gameplay trailers were released that showed Catwoman and Green Arrow. If you're a DC fan, or even just a fan of cool fighting games, Injustice should be on your radar
