Zack Snyder confirmed that the video game Injustice: Gods Among Us was inspiration for the Knightmare sequence of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Created by Mortal Kombat developers NetherRealm Studios and launched in 2013, Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game using DC Comics characters. It could’ve been a throwaway spinoff for DC. However, Injustice has grown in popularity since its 2013 launch, creating not only a sequel but two ongoing comic series set in the universe.
The big hook of the Injustice universe is that after the death of Lois Lane, Superman has turned evil. Kal-El sets up a totalitarian regime on Earth in the name of safety, but he really just controls it with an iron fist. Injustice isn’t the only Elseworld in DC history that has an evil Superman. However, it has become one of the most popular. According to Zack Snyder, he planned to adapt the story into the DCEU.
