WB Releases The First 2 Minutes Of Batman Ninja Online


We’ve long had a soft spot for stories that transplant Batman to different times. The best is probably – in our opinion, at least – Gotham By Gaslight, which imagines a Victorian Batman tangling with Jack the Ripper, but we also enjoyed Grant Morrison’s time-hopping miniseries Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne, which featured Caveman Batman, Witchhunter Batman, Pirate Batman, Cowboy Batman and 30s Gumshoe Batman. So, naturally, we’re over the moon with excitement for Batman Ninja.

First announced at the New York Comic-Con last year, the film is the brainchild of DC and a number of anime and manga superstars. Namely, Junpei Mizusaki (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure), Takashi Okazashi (Afro Samurai), and Kazuki Nakashima (Gurren Lagann). It’ll feature a pretty bold story, too, that’ll see – get this – the Dark Knight being thrown back through time to medieval Japan.

While there, he’ll run into a whole host of supporting characters, and while we don’t get to see too many of them in this new clip (though Catwoman and Grodd make appearances), it still offers up a nice taste of what we’re in for, setting the stage well for what’s sure to be a wild adventure.

If you’ve seen any of the previously released trailers, you’ll know that there’s much to look forward to in Batman Ninja, with the film’s bold vision of the iconic hero being pretty out there – which is what has so many people curious about it. We’re also interested to see a new spin put on the likes of Joker, Harley Quinn, Deathstroke and many more.

For any true Bat fan, Batman Ninja will surely be a treat and while it may be a bit too bizarre and offbeat for some, we definitely suggest checking it out once it arrives on April 24th (pre-order here), just days before Avengers: Infinity War storms into theaters and obliterates the box office.
