Fans are claiming that it could be Black Mantra and Raiden from the recognizable shapes that were seen in the image.

Aside from Black Mantra and Raiden, Spawn has been one of the top bet to be one the next three DLC characters. There is a theory that whatever name the game creator mentioned will be the next character that will be released in the game. According to this theory, in one of Ed Boon’s interview, he mentioned that Starfire and Red Hood were among the highly requested fighters to be included in the list. And so currently, both characters have been released in the game. Interestingly, Boon dropped another Black Mantra’s name in one of his previous interviews.

Aside from the name dropping, another potential angle for predicting the upcoming character in the game is through the poll NetherRealm conducted before the game was officially launched. The poll revealed who among the characters most players are interested playing with. In the poll, a couple of names ranked on top, Sub-Zero and Spawn. Who do you think are the characters contained in the Fighter Pack 2 of “Injustice 2?”
