Heroes Assemble In New Clip From DC’s ‘Batman Ninja’

Batman Ninja Joker Anime Japan DC Trailer First Look Animated

Between Batman: Gotham By Gaslight and Batman Ninja it appears that DC is attempting new and potentially strange things with their animated films. That being said, sometimes you need something new and potentially strange to mix up the monotony and Batman Ninja seems to be doing that in many different ways.

The clip from the upcoming animated film from DC and Warner Bros. features Batman talking to Nightwing and Red Robin. The duo introduce the Caped Crusader to a new ally and his clan of ninjas. Check it out below.

Unlike most of the animated films, this new rendition of Batman is not based off of a comic story line. The story will feature Batman, in the midst of battling Gorilla Grodd, being thrown back in time and winding up in Japan. Although the film isn’t released widely for rental or physical purchase until May 8th, it’s currently available to own digitally through VOD rental services.

9 Times Joker Fought The Justice League And Won

Previous1 of 10

The Joker Justice League DC ComicsThe Joker is more than just a thorn in Batman’s side. The Clown Prince of Crime has taken on various members of the Justice League and lived to laugh another day. His dastardly plots are dangerous for everyone, and sometime he wants to take on an opponent who doesn’t know him as well as Batman does. Out of the entire superhero community, Batman clearly knows Joker best, so it makes sense that sometimes he wants to stretch his creative muscles and try and take down other heroes.

The character may physically just be a human being, but he still poses a threat to god-like figures like Superman and Wonder Woman. He may hurt his hand if he directly punches the last son of Krypton, but that doesn’t mean he can’t hurt him just as easily as he can anyone else. No matter how confusing he may be, Joker’s an intelligent, ruthless villain who happily picks on anybody he wants.
