New Trailer and Release Details for Batman Ninja

The Batman Ninja anime movie has been assigned a US release date, as well as receiving one final trailer from Warner Bros. In it, viewers get a first-glimpse at Bane, and are given a partial explanation as to why the narrative has transported from the traditional Gotham City landscape into feudal Japan.

The Joker is the antagonist who takes charge of the opposing faction embroiled in a civil war. Batman needs to use his intellect and his allies to bring peace to the land, including working with Catwoman and Robin and the rest of the "Bat-Family". The film was written by Kazuki Nakashima (Gurren Lagann), directed by Jumpei Mizusaki (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure), with character designs by Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai).

The movie is now set for a digital release on the 24th of April, 2018 while the Blu-ray copy and DVD are slated for a release on the 8th of May.

Similar to many other Warner Bros. releases as of late, Batman Ninja will first arrive on digital HD on April 24. Voicing Batman this time out is Roger Craig Smith, who played the character in the video game Batman: Arkham Origins. Later this summer you'll be able to download it in 4K.

Prepare to witness the Dark Knight, alongside many of his most famed allies and infamous foes, in an eye-popping anime display you've never seen before when Warner Bros. According to the official synopsis, this occurs thanks to "Gorilla Grodd's time displacement machine", but when it facilitates the unbelievable visuals offered up by Batman Ninja, most fans are likely to not really care that much what the inciting event was. Award-winning screenwriters Leo Chu and Eric Garcia (Supah Ninjas, Afro Samurai) adapted the film's script to English.

Batman Ninja is PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, and for some suggestive material. The rogue's gallery also features Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Penguin and Eric Bauza (The Adventures of Puss in Boots) as Two-Face, and on double duty are Tatasciore as Deathstroke, Strong as Poison Ivy, and Friedle as Red Hood.

It's rare that a new Batman release takes the Caped Crusader in a truly original direction, but that's exactly what the upcoming Batman Ninja looks to accomplish.
