“Batman Ninja” Anime Film On the Way

The DC animated universe is set to take on a Victorian flavor soon with “Gotham by Gaslight,” the upcoming direct-to-VOD animated feature based on the first of the ‘Elseworlds’ Batman comic titles.

Now it has been revealed the Caped Crusader will soon get another makeover with the reveal of “Batman Ninja,” a new direct-to-video animated movie that reinvents the hero as a ninja.

On top of that, the project is being worked on by “Afro Samurai” creator Takashi Okazaki and will be done with anime style animation. Warner Bros. Japan and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment are teaming for the project which will be unveiled at New York Comic-Con next weekend.

Jumpei Mizusaki (“JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure”) helms the project which was penned by Kazuki Nakashima (“Kamen Rider Fourze”). A 2018 release is expected.
