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.
Batman Ninja will be available on Digital release April 24, 2018, followed by the Blu-ray Steelbook, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on May 8, 2018.
5 Reasons Michael Bay Is The Perfect Director For DC’s ‘Lobo’
One of the most “in development hell” movies from DC has been Lobo. In fall of 2009, Guy Ritchie was attached to the project, but he left in early 2010 to work on other films. Two years later, Brad Peyton was reportedly going to write and direct the film with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson starring as the titular character. However, Johnson was soon after announced as Black Adam. Jason Fuchs had been named the screenwriter in spring of 2016 but there still wasn’t a solid director rumored or announced until a few weeks ago when Michael Bay was revealed to be in talks for the project.
Bay has to be one of the most polarizing directors in the last 25 years and I think the criticisms are valid. You’ve got films like The Rock, Armageddon, Bad Boys and Transformers on one side but then you’ve got some questionable choices in those same franchises as well. But Lobo is something that might be a little different and not the typical Michael Bay experience so there are reasons why this movie might actually work with him at the helm.
