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:
