NetherRealm Studios confirmed three more fighters coming to Injustice 2 as part of the game's upcoming Fighter Pack 2. Super-villain Black Manta, Raiden from Mortal Kombat and Hellboy will be released as downloadable content in the coming months.

Black Manta and Raiden were strongly hinted at back in May, when NetherRealm revealed the three characters (Red Hood, Starfire and Sub-Zero) coming to Injustice 2 in the first Fighter Pack. But Hellboy — a Dark Horse Comics-published character — is definitely a surprise. Hellboy, created by Mike Mignola in the early '90s, crossed over into the DC Universe previously in the Batman/Hellboy/Starman mini-series.

It's not clear when Black Manta, Raiden and Hellboy will be released for Injustice 2, but fans will get a preview of Black Manta in action this Sunday, Aug. 27, on NetherRealm's Twitch channel.

Black Manta, Raiden and Hellboy are included as part of Injustice 2's Ultimate Edition, which includes nine post-release DLC characters and additional cosmetics.
