Where and how to watch the DC animated Injustice movie
DC has finally adapted the Injustice: Gods Among Us universe into an animated film. Injustice was a fighting game developed by NetherRealm Studios and released in 2013 for the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3. It was a DC Comics storyline based on a grim premise: what if The Joker killed Lois Lane and Superman become super-evil as a result?
The Justice League was then disbanded, with various heroes taking sides throughout the fight. Even by comic book standards, it was ridiculous, yet it was hugely successful.
The original game produced enormously profitable comic books, mobile games, and a console sequel video game, and it even appeared to inspire Zack Snyder’s Batman Vs Superman in 2016. Now, the DC animation machine is converting the basic tale into a film that will be available on VOD on October 18, 2021.
Justin Hartley plays Superman, Anson Mount plays Batman, Gillian Jacobs plays Harley Quinn, and Kevin Pollak plays the Joker.

Is the DC animated Injustice movie releasing on HBO Max?
As far as we know, Injustice will not be available on HBO Max. If the goal was to convince people to support a subscription-based streaming service, it would be pointless to distribute it separately as a commercial product.
You may, however, expect the film to be available on the service at some point. The problem is that Warner Bros. is inconsistent in how these items are released. Parts 1 and 2 of The Long Halloween film, which were released in June and July 2021, respectively, were added to HBO Max in the beginning of October 2021.
In comparison, the Justice Society: World War II film, which will be released in April 2021, will not be available on HBO Max. As a result, there is no trend we can use to make an educated guess about when Injustice will premiere on HBO Max.
If you’re not in a hurry to watch it, come back in a few months to see what the deal is.
