I asked if the story will be an Elseworlds story or fall in the DCU proper. It will NOT be an Elseworlds story, but don't look for any references about the event in any DC books, besides a very small few, IF that. No MK characters will ever show up in any other DC books, EVER. He said there will not be an issue of Batman with flashbacks on the event or Batman discussing what happened with Robin.Check out the rest of the report and then visit our our Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe GameRealm, featuring an in-depth interview with Ed Boon and the original full theatrical trailer available in 720p HD.
Robin? So he is in the game? I get a big *smirk* and Yes. Add Robin to the list. I then of course asked, which one? Tim Drake? Dick Grayson? Jason Todd? Stephanie Brown? He said the story will take place in the present. So Tim Drake? And he confirmed with a head nod.
I must have named off every MK character and DC character that came to mind to see if he would let me know who else. He said a few are quite obvious on both ends and confirmed the following: Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern (didn't say which GL or Flash but said that doesn't mean there is only one of each in the game) Black Canary, Hawkman and Powergirl.

LOL! No background! And what's with the patches?

AWESOME! The 'patches' thing looks like armour plating to me, more like the Batman Begins suit, which is what all you guys wanted anyway. It's there to try and keep both factions happy.

Making of MK vs DC video
Gamespot: Have you made any more headway on the fatality versus finishing moves?He also gives more back story on working with DC and how fan sites have helped guide development quite a bit. The article also has some great new screenshots, most of which were scanned and uploaded to the internet last week. They feature the first look at the special moves of the DC character. Midway just sent us the same screenshots for publication as well, so you can see them here below.
Ed Boon: Yes we have. All of the MK characters and all of the DC villains will have fatalities. The DC heroes who don't kill that often will have brutalities that will function just like fatalities but don't actually kill the opponent.
