Check out the new trailer for Warner Bros. Japan’s upcoming anime movie Batman Ninja which transports The Dark Knight to feudal Japan.
Character designer Takashi Okazaki has reimagined Gotham’s heroes and villains as characters inspired by Medieval Japan.
Batman Ninja is the story of how Batman, the Bat Family, and a number of Gotham’s criminals are transported through time and space back to Medieval Japan where they become embroiled in a local power struggle. Director Jumpei Mizusaki has described Batman Ninja as a film meant to show the world how Japan sees Batman and not one about how Batman (and Bruce Wayne) see Japan. Judging by the trailer, Japan sees a badass side of Batman that’s like nothing we’ve ever seen before.
Batman Ninja hits stores on DVD and Blu-Ray in 2018 and Warner Bros. will include both the original Japanese version of the film, and a version with English dubbing.
