Batman Ninja anime English Dub and Release Date

Revealed a while back, the people who worked on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures, Afro Samurai and Gurren Lagann came together and created an anime adaptation of Batman called Batman Ninja. Announced today at Anime News Network, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released an English Dub trailer and the cast for this anime movie. The movie will be set for physical release on May 8th for a Blu-Ray/DVD combo, DVD, Blu-Ray Steelbook case. However, the movie is available early on April 24th if you want it digital. The movie will also have Japanese Dub if you prefer to watch it in Japanese. Here is the cast for the movie:



Anime Synopsis:

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.

Sidenote: I feel like this movie should have been titled as Batman Samurai instead since with the armor, he looks like a samurai. I can’t believe that the voice of Ignis from Final Fantasy XV will be Alfred!
