Bizarro vs. Bane in a Never-Released DC Fighting Game for Xbox 360



We’ve heard a lot of wild rumors about upcoming DC movies, but I think it’s pretty clear that one battle we won’t be seeing onscreen is Bizarro vs. Bane. Bane’s had two big-screen outings and been the butt of fanboy jokes both times, and Bizarro might require a fair bit of backstory first to get him right.

But where there’s a will, there’s a way, and this unfinished, previously unreleased footage of a Justice League game developed by Double Helix shows how the fight might go down. The game was originally developed to tie-in to the George Miller Justice League movie, but when that fell through the idea was to make it more comic-based. In the end, it just didn’t happen.

And honestly, I feel no sense of loss about that. But I do want to know why Bizarro randomly turns into a woman for split-seconds during the fight.
