Confirming the rumours from back in June, Warner Bros. has officially announced the upcoming release of the DC animated movie Batman: Soul of the Dragon, a 1970s-set original story from director Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke), writer Jeremy Adams (Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge) and executive producer Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series).
Here’s the official synopsis:
“Batman, Bronze Tiger, Lady Shiva, and Richard Dragon join forces when they come to realize that they share a common acquaintance. The Martial Arts Master that trained them has been missing for a number of years and under mysterious circumstances. When a cursed relic resurfaces, the mystery of their dead master re-opens and Batman and his former classmates must face-off in the ultimate test of their Martial Arts kills to gain control of this dangerous relic.”
Leading the voice cast of Batman: Soul of the Dragon as the Dark Knight is David Guintoli (Grimm), and he’ll be joined by Mark Dacascos as Richard Dragon, Kelly Hu as Lady Shiva, Michael Jai White as Ben Turner/Bronze Tiger, James Hong as O-Sensei and Josh Keaton as Jeffrey Burr.
Batman: Soul of the Dragon is set for release early 2021.
