"We definitely started... we wanted to get all the top treatments, all the top IP," Tringali told Joystiq. "There's dozens of versions of Batman, Superman, a lot of the major tier 1 heroes. Then we went through and added the rest of them. DC is such a big, expansive universe that it's not possible to get everything that's ever been created."
Nonetheless, with 5th Cell at least attempting to cover as much of the DC universe as possible, we wondered if the studio was considering DLC for new characters introduced down the line. Wouldn't it be neat if players could mess around with the very latest DC superhero in this thoroughly DC-themed game?
"For the platforms that support DLC, that's always a possibility," Trigali told us. "But there are no plans at this time."
Ah well. Until such a bat-time, we'll have make to do with the game proper, which is coming to Wii U, 3DS, and PC this fall.
