Gotham’s heroes and villains are reimagined by anime veterans, character designer Takashi Okazaki and director Jumpei Mizusaki, as Medieval Japanese warriors in Warner’s Batman Ninja film. The first trailer for the Samurai-esque Batman film is now finally available and it’s breathtakingly cool.
Batman Ninja sees The Dark Knight and a few of his cohorts (which include Joker, Nightwing, Robin, Harley Quinn, Penguin, and Gorilla Grodd) travelling back in time to medieval Japan.
The trailer shows Batman fighting Joker and Catwoman fighting Harley in rapid quick cuts. It’s an exciting way to present the Caped Crusader and the anime looks fun and action-packed, of course. It has a very 7 Samurai feel to it.
The cast includes Koichi Yamadera as Batman, Wataru Takagi as The Joker, Ai Kakuma as Catwoman and Rie Kugimiya at Harley Quinn.
