Batman Ninja Anime Movie Gets Spring 2018 US Release Date

Batman Ninja Anime Movie Gets Spring 2018 US Release Date

The upcoming Batman Ninja animated movie has received another trailer, which is basically the same as the original one released back in December but with a few additional clips and voiced in English.

Batman Ninja was created by some of Japan's top animation industry talents, including director Jumpei Mizusaki (opening animation of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure), writer Kazuki Nakashima (Gurren Lagann), and character designer Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai).

Roger Craig Smith (Batman: Arkham Origins) and Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) lead the English-speaking cast as Batman and the Joker, respectively, while Grey Griffin (Scooby-Doo) voices Catwoman and Tara Strong (Batman: The Killing Joke) lends her pipes for Harley Quinn. Honestly, it just makes the premise of Batman and the Joker being sent into the past of ancient Japan for a time-altering adventure all the more absurd, but if you want your Batman-as-a-ninja experience as, err, authentic as possible, the Blu-ray release of Batman Ninja will also come with the Japanese audio track. The movie sports a gorgeous CG anime style, which is a big departure from previous animated Batman films. That's when the film gets its digital release, while Batman Ninja drops on Blu-ray Steelbook, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD on May 8, 2018.

The 'Call Of Duty' Movie May Land The Director Of 'Sicario 2'
It shouldn't come as a surprise that there's a Call of Duty movie in the works, something that will be limited to 24FPS. The Call of Duty film is in an early stage of moving forward, but it is definitely progressing.

For Batman fans in the Western Hemisphere who've been waiting since New York Comic Con to see a time-traveling Batman go literally medieval on his enemies, the wait is nearly over. The villains are feudal lords ruling over the divided lands, with the Joker leading the warring factions.

The script was then reinterpreted and rewritten for English-language distribution by screenwriters Leo Chu and Eric Garcia (Supah Ninjas, Afro Samurai). Benjamin Melniker and Michael Uslan serve as executive producers executive producers. 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".

He may dress like he has a fetish for flying rodents, but for all intents and purposes Batman is a ninja.
