SUPPORT FLICKERING MYTH: Order via Sideshow Collectibles
Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present the Ninja Batman from Batman Ninja (Animated Film). From the top creators in Japan, Batman Ninja is an upcoming Japanese animated film directed by Junpei Mizusaki (“Opening Animation for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Series”), animation production by Kamikaze Douga, screenplay by Kazuki Nakashima (“Gurren Lagann”, “Kill La Kill”), music by Yugo Kanno (“JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure”, “Psycho-Pass”) and Takashi Okazaki, the creator of Afro Samurai, is the character designer for the animated film produced by Warner Bros.
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.
Batman Ninja will see Batman, Nightwing, Robin and a host of the Rogues Gallery transported back in time to feudal Japan. The film is set for a DVD/Blu-ray release on April 4th, and features a creative team that includes director Jumpei Mizusaki (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure), character designer Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai), screenwriter Kazuki Nakashima (Kamen Rider Fourze) and English language screenwriters Leo Chu and Eric Garcia (Supa Ninjas).
