  • Apparently, NetherRealm Studios has nothing to do with Warner Bros' upcoming title.
  • And since it's not working on this platform fighter, it's developing its own awesome game.
  • Rumors are that NRS is actually designing a Marvel fighting experience, similar to Injustice.
  • No information about when these titles could be released is available, but it will take a few years.

There has been a lot of talk recently about some awesome new games that are about to become reality in the not-so-distant future.

Fighting game fans have been constantly wondering what NetherRealm Studios has been working on ever since announcing that there will be no more DLCs for Mortal Kombat 11.

Then, rumors began to surface that NeherRealm was actually collaborating with Warner Bros for the upcoming platform fighter game.

All that hype was put to rest by Jeff Grubb when he told everyone that wasn’t the case. However, you would be surprised to find out what NetherRealm is actually cooking.


Another new leak involving Warner Bros’ new fighting game has emerged and, this time, we actually get to have a look at some of the actual characters within the game itself.

In the picture, we can see fighters such as Batman, Wonder Woman, Gandalf, Bugs Bunny, Harley Quinn, Shaggy, Rick (from Rick & Morty), Superman Tom & Jerry, and more.

This eye candy has surely pleased fans who just can’t contain their excitement anymore and just want the game to come out.

Multiversus is coming but its not a NetherRealm Studios game

Based on the leaked information, which is all speculative, Multiversus will be a tag-team fighter, though the specifics of what that means weren’t included in the information.

This awesome new title will feature fighters from multiple Warner Bros. franchises, and the reported roster is said to include Shaggy, Gandalf, Tom and Jerry, Batman, Fred Flintstone, Mad Max, Harry Potter, and Johnny Bravo.

Initially, it was said that this game was originally brought up due to the Ultra Instinct Shaggy memes from 2017 that led to fans asking NetherRealm Studios to add him to Mortal Kombat 11.

And while he did eventually make it into the MK universe as a reference in the opening title scroll of the Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms animated film, he was obviously never added to the game. 

This platform fighter is sort of an open secret in the gaming world right now. But, as Grubb himself said, NetherRealm Studios isn’t working on it.

It’s highly unlikely Multiversus will be released anytime soon, but we could see an official reveal at The Game Awards in December.

NetherRealm Studios is currently working on a Marvel fighting game

Although this is somewhat fresh information, rumors have been circulating around the web for some time now about a new Injustice and a brand new IP.

NetherRealm has also been working on a Marvel equivalent of Injustice since they released Aftermath for Mortal Kombat 11.

At some point, there were also plans to have a Marvel guest character in Kombat Pack 2, which was Deadpool, but they were ultimately scrapped and their assets reused for the upcoming title.

According to the GamingLeaksAndRumors subreddit, the game is extremely close to being finished, but no information about its title has been revealed.

And you will be pleasantly surprised to find out that there are quite a few characters, a lot of unexpected ones too. A small fraction of these characters have been leaked, but not all of them are playable.

Among them are Thor, Magic, Quake, Domino, Sersi, Captain America, Rogue, and Deadpool. Apparently, since Deadpool was never added in Mortal Kombat 11, he found the perfect place to call home.

This is very exciting for all the fighting game fans out there, so it will be hard to contain all this joy and actually wait years for these titles to be declared ready.

We will keep an open eye for any changes and report as soon as we have new information.
