Full story on "The Verge"
Nightwing is primarily weapons-based, wielding a staff that has a extended reach for sweeping and poking attacks. He's also noticeably nimbler than other fighters and can leap out of danger when backed into a corner.
Nightwing's staff can be split in two by pressing the special button — B on an Xbox 360 controller — increasing his speed and jump height, but decreasing his range. Nightwing's weapon stance change opens up a new set of attacks and special moves for the character
Full Story Here
Cyborg's fighting style includes a series of powerful hand-to-hand attacks complemented with long-range attacks: lasers, fireballs and missile strikes. Using the game's mechanic of high, mid and low attacks, Cyborg can launch missiles straight into the air, shoot fireballs forward and emit energy blasts at an opponent's feet (then follow up with a pair of lobbed, shoulder-launched missiles).
Cyborg's special — again, with the Xbox 360 controller's B button — is a health regenerating move, ensuring that opponents must stay offensive when fighting him. His charged up super move consists of a hefty, oversized punch followed by a screen-filling energy blast a la Iron Man's super move from Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
Basically Ed Boon came on his twitter and announced there would be 2 characters revealed and 30 minutes later they were. There was no stream and these are the only images we have so far, but expect more tomorrow at Comic Con. More characters may also be in bound as well.

(Go to 6:34 to see Cyborg's self healing move in action and watch his health. That thing is RIDICULOUSLY fast once it gets going but its start up and recovery is long before it kicks in. May not be as useful as I thought it would. Looks pretty punishable.)
GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE !!!!
Ed boon also posted comic book covers for Deathstroke, Nightwing, Aquaman and Green Arrow at one point so they may just be confirmed too. These pics are down now if I'm not mistaken, but he's pretty bad at keeping secrets so far and also heavily hinted at The Joker in an interview recently.
Here is his twitter.
ALSO STORY TEASER WAS REVEALED EARLY TODAY
Link to the teaser speech.
Quite a busy day and expect more news to crop up here as more things happen at Comic Con.
Its hard to say what will be revealed or discussed next, but so far everything seems to be on the table with NetherRealm Studios for debate on mechanics based on fan feedback. At EVO they specifically requested feedback from the fighting game community. Hopefully they get some good stuff at Comic Con
