‘Batman Ninja’: An Insane Japanese Anime Version Of The Iconic Superhero

Drop everything. Give up on Christian Bale, Ben Affleck (he’s a terrible Batman anyway) and the rest. Instead embrace the glory that is Batman Ninja, an epic Japanese anime version of the DC superhero. With a feature length film set to be released next year, the insane trailer for it has now emerged and it looks like nothing we’ve ever seen.

Batman Ninja sees the caped crusader and his enemies sent back in time to Medieval Japan. The change in genre is definitely something to watch and if you were fan of Afro Samurai, the film brings the same creators to the table. Director Junpei Mizusaki notes that the film is “how Japan sees Batman and not one about how Batman (and Bruce Wayne) see Japan,” so if that doesn’t persuade you I don’t know what will.
