Late last year, I jumped the gun somewhat and told my presumably mostly English-reading readership about a trailer for an animated film entitled Batman Ninja, with the caveat that an English language version was hopefully on the way. Now, thankfully, we do indeed have an English dubbed trailer, as well as an official plot synopsis from DC Entertainment that explains what goes down after Batman and Joker find themselves in ancient Japan:
“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.”
Batman Ninja comes out digitally on April 24th, with a physical release on May 8th. In the meantime, check out the movie’s official site here.
