In an example of perfectly timed announcements, WB and NetherRealm have revealed that Green Arrow is joining the cast of Injustice: Gods Among Us. For those wondering just what I mean, the new CW show featuring that same stalwart of the DC Comics universe premieres tonight. I can only hope that the new series lives up to the excitement that this trailer offers up.

It’s no surprise that Oliver Queen is going to be lethal at long range, but using his bow and blade for fast melee attacks, mixing up the trick shots to keep opponents guessing gives him an added dimension. You can check out the trailer below. The excitement is mounting to Injustice’s April 2012 release.
