The first trailer has been released for “Batman Ninja,” the upcoming Jumpei Mizusaki-directed anime film based on the DC Comics property. At the same time the New York Comic Con announcement video from October has also gone online.
The film re-imagines the heroes and villains of Gotham City with a feudal Japanese feel as the group of characters get transported through time and space back to that era and become caught up in a local power struggle.
Takashi Okazaki (“Afro Samurai”) is behind the new designs for the film which aims to show “how Japan sees Batman”. “Batman Ninja” hits DVD and Blu-ray sometime in 2018.
