A few short months ago, I shared the trailer for the anime feature “Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters” which you can see HERE in the event that you missed it. In the post I mentioned my aiming at sharing more items such as this based on the dominance of the Anime culture and its wonderful shows. That brings me to the recently revealed feature by some of Japan’s top creators with “Batman Ninja”. Check out the clip below along with the premise and the voice actors.
The Premise: Batman is transported to Feudal Japan and must battle reimagined versions of his villains alongside his allies. Aiding the Dark Knight are Japanese versions of Nightwing, Red Hood, Red Robin, Robin, Alfred Pennyworth, and Catwoman. Villains confirmed to appear include the Joker, Harley Quinn, Penguin, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Deathstroke, and Gorilla Grodd. (thanks Wiki).
Batman – Kōichi Yamadera
Joker – Wataru Takagi
Harley Quinn – Rie Kugimiya
Catwoman – Ai Kakuma
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I noted in the post about “Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters”, I’ve been trying to be more on point with the Anime stuff because its getting bigger and bigger. Perhaps its always been big but I guess what I am saying is that more people who never paid much attention to it are realizing what they have been missing. My cousins think its comical that I’ve never seen an episode of “Attack On Titan” or any “Gundam Wing” stuff but I haven’t. As far as “Batman Ninja” is concerned, I have to say that this one looks really awesome and how interesting will it be to see Feudal Japan themed characters from the Batman franchise. The Joker and Harley Quinn look especially wild IMHO and with the lackluster views about the “Killing Joke” film from the Warner Animated folks, this one looks to be a significant upgrade. As I watched this it reminded me of the “Elseworlds” tales that I used to collect back in the day from DC Comics. This will hit the streets in 2018 during the early part of the year to my knowledge and let’s hope that the fine folks at Fathom Events put together some kind of “one-night only” screening so we can not only be in attendance but try to sort out a contest for our readers to see it for free on the big screen. What did you think of this one? Let me know down in the comments section below. Until next time.
