  • In Memoriam: The game is dedicated to the memory of Miguel Parra, one of the senior software engineers for NetherRealm Studios.
  • Jossed: Many believed that Joey Naber was replaced as Black Adam, due to Adam sounding differently from the first game; the most popular belief being that Sean Schemmel had taken over. It was revealed not long before the game was released that Naber reprised the role.

      • Milton Wolch replaces Dafnis Fernández as Green Lantern (John Stewart).
      • Gerardo Reyero doesn't return to voice neither Raiden nor Hellboy, Santos Alberto now plays Raiden and Andrés Gutiérrez Coto plays Hellboy
    • Brazilian version:
      • Márcio Seixas replaces Ettore Zuim as Batman.
      • Marcio Simões replaces Isaac Schneider as The Joker.
  • The Other Marty: Dee Bradley Baker voiced Brainiac in one of the trailers, but was replaced by Jeffrey Combs for the game itself.
  • Teasing Creator: As with Mortal Kombat X before it, Ed Boon has gone on Twitter to tease potential Guest Fighters for the game. He went on to post two polls, one with Mortal Kombat characters Sub-Zero, Raiden, Jax and Johnny Cage (note how former Injustice guest Scorpion isn't present) and another with Spawn, Hellboy, The Terminator and Buffy Summers. At the end of the game's DLC development, Sub-Zero and Spawn have convincingly taken the number one spot for both polls, with Sub-Zero being added in the game's first DLC release and Raiden being teased in the same trailer and later confirmed with the second DLC fighter pack along with Hellboy, while Spawn and the Terminator were held back to Mortal Kombat 11's DLC releases.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Some early Word of God discussion about where the studio was going after the first Injustice suggested Darkseid would be a villain in a sequel. This was evidently dropped in favor of Brainiac, though Darkseid joins the character roster as a DLC character.
    • One of the original ideas for the game involved Ra's Al Ghul (voiced by Bryan Cranston) recruiting villains to make an even more extreme version of the Regime. Traces of this discarded storyline can still be seen in Injustice 2's first teaser trailer, Black Adam's arcade ending and the prequel comics.
    • Supergirl's default character design and appearance was consistently worked on and altered up until release. As well as her face being tweaked, her original default look had a smaller more traditional "S" shield on her chest, as well as a more complex-designed armored costume with a triple-tipped cape. This version was seen in the initial teaser trailer and has made appearances in various forms of marketing, even making it to covers for the game.
    • For some reason Deadshot's intro animations changed when the game was released. His original ones, seen in his and Harley Quinn's trailer and Black Canary's trailer features him playing around with his knife. The intro animations he has in-game however, feature him flipping a bullet like a coin (If he talks second) or aiming his rifle at his opponent (If he talks first).
    • Static was ready to be included in the roster, but was ultimately cut due to legal reasons.
    • Jim Lee's initial concept art for Raiden's appearance had him resemble more of a humanoid Elemental Embodiment of lightning rather than the more traditional human-looking appearance that was eventually settled upon. This holdover is seen in his ending artwork, where Raiden has an appearance similar to this artwork concept.
    • A Fighter Pack 0 was considered, which would have brought back characters from the first game (specifically Ares, Batgirl, Doomsday and Shazam) as DLC, but was dropped in favour of Fighter Pack 3.
    • Concept art suggests Bluebird, Detective Chimp, John Constantine, Etrigan, and even Krypto the Superdog were considered at one point.
    • Ed Boon revealed in an interview for Mortal Kombat 11 that Neo from The Matrix was pretty close to being added as a DLC character. A poll he posted on Twitter in 2017 relating to this implied that they weren't able to get Keanu Reeves on board for this.
