Batman Ninja is a project from Warner Bros. Japan and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, which is slated to be released in 2018.
Kamikaze Douga CEO and founder Junpei Mizusaki, Takashi Okazaki, Kazuki Nakashima all took part in a panel for Batman Ninja on Thursday. At the panel, the trio introduced the project and showed off a teaser trailer.
Takashi Okazaki was the author of the original Afro Samurai manga, which launched in Nou Nou Hau magazine in 1999. Leo Chu and Eric Garcia both served as executive producers on the Afro Samurai anime, as well as sequel film Afro Samurai: Resurrection.
Warner Bros. describes the film as:
Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports many of Batman’s worst enemies to feudal Japan – along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies – including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family – to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.
