Now that Gotham by Gaslight is out on Home Video WB has turned their attention to the next film in the line of DC direct to home video original film’s: Batman Ninja. The film will send Batman to feudal Japan via a time displacement at the hands of Gorilla Grodd. Once in Japan the Caped Crusader must figure out how to defeat that time period’s version of the Joker, and find a way back to his time. The film will feature eastern versions of many of Batman’s famous foes and allies, and will hit home VOD on April 24th 2018 with a physical media release scheduled for May 8th.
This film looks like a total blast, WB has even went as far as to add a dubbing element to the film to make it feel like you are watching one of your grandpa’s old samurai film’s on VHS. The decision by DC to have Flash villain: Gorilla Grodd be the cause of Batman’s unwanted trip East is also a brilliant concept, as we rarely see the Dark Knight go up against any of the rogues. All of Batman’s allies from Catwoman to Robin look very stunning in what is a very stylized take on the characters.
