Late last month, fans learned that anime feature film titled Batman Ninja was in development and would receive a panel at this year’s New York Comic Con. Now, a brand new poster for the film has been revealed and it offers fans a sneak peek at this newest incarnation of the Caped Crusader.
The poster featured the Dark Knight leaping in the air as he wields two katana with the moon pictured behind him. Donning shogun armor, the poster offers fans only glimpse at this unique take on the DC Comics hero.
Batman Ninja will be helmed by JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure director Jumpei Mizusaki.
A press statement about the panel reads as follows:
“Warner Bros. Japan and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment team for an eye-popping addition to the Batman animated legacy with Batman Ninja, a spectacular, all-new anime film coming in 2018.

5 Greatest Batman Comic Book Crossovers
Batman is one of DC’s most versatile characters. He fits well in dark stories like The Killing Joke just as much as he does in campy stories like Batman ’66. Not only does he fit well in every corner of the DC Universe, fighting alongside the Justice League on Earth or taking on Darkseid on Apokolips, but he also fits in different comic book universes.
Over the character’s long history, there have been multiple crossovers that have taken the Caped Crusader to new lands. He’s gone up against everyone from the Punisher to the Predator and even fought alongside fan favorite characters like The Spirit and Hellboy. No matter where he goes, Batman is still a great character who can handle himself no matter where he ends up. Batman has scared enough people in the DC Universe and Bruce Wayne has seduced enough young ladies, so it only makes sense that he expands his reach every once in a while.
