Batman Ninja Is The DC Anime Film You've Been Waiting For

Japan upcoming Batman Ninja anime is fantastic enough, it's the film's gorgeous visuals that really turn it into a truly unique, compelling work of art. Batman is missing all of his high-tech weapons, but he trains his mind to take on a powerful Joker, who now claims he's the most powerful figure in Japan. The poster, which you can check out below, indicates the Batman goes up against Joker, Harley Quinn, Gorilla Grodd, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Deathstroke, and the Penguin with help from period-appropriate versions of Catwoman, Robin, Nightwing, Red Robin, Alfred, and the Red Hood. Creators Junpei Mizusaki, Takashi Okazashi, and Kazuki Nakashima have worked on shows such as Afro Samurai, Kill La Kill, and Gurren Lagann. With only his shōgun batsuit and physical strength, Batman will become the ninja-samurai he always has been, katana and all. Interestingly, both projects take Batman back in time and away from the US, with Gotham by Gaslight set in a version of Gotham in Victorian Britain. And I love how Japan apparently sees Batman: as an unstoppable flood of psychedelic, freaky villains and mythic characters. It's an exciting way to present the Caped Crusader and the anime looks fun and action-packed, of course. Batman Ninja, however, looks like it's on a whole other level of lavish design that we've never seen before, aided by the 3-D animation, which has never looked better in anime form (I'm looking at you Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters). The unconventional approaches to these properties in films like The Lego Batman Movie and now this are breathing new life into things we've seen a million times.
