Batman is once again getting the anime treatment with a new animated film slated for 2018 entitled, “Batman Ninja” and it looks amazing from the trailer. The film is being put together through a joint effort from Warner Bros. Japan and DC Entertainment. The film is being directed by Junpei Mizusaki, who you may know from his work as a producer on the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure TV Series, and Takashi Okazaki, the creator of Afro Samurai.
There is a lot to unpack within this trailer but it looks like all the major players are here. The Joker, Robin, Nightwing, and even Catwoman manage to make it in to this feudal-age interpretation of Batman.
Even though I am not a fan of this CG style that we are seeing more of in anime, this looks to be a great addition to the 2018 movie line up. What do you all think of the trailer? What other DC characters would you like to see interpreted in this feudal-age style?
