Hollywood can let Batman go - cuz, the world of anime has found him, and is making Batman great again. The trailer of Batman Ninja is here and features an anime Dark Knight battling Joker, Penguin, and Coin medieval Japan. He has a new metallic batsuit with gold accents, he uses a sword and even drinks tea.

the new animated feature film by Warner Bros, and is based on Bob Kane's Batman series. The Ninja storyline is actually a major favorite comic book reader – and even Christopher Nolan explored it in his movies (with Ra’s al Ghul and his background in the Asian martial arts). In Batman Ninja, Batman literally time travels to a tumultuous time in medieval Japan – where he must save the country from villains who are apparently trying to “rewrite the history of this country.”

1Batman meets anime

Batman Ninja is an upcoming Japanese animated film, which features the Dark Knight as a Ninja, who fights to save Japan and its history. “When Japan is in a state of chaos like a mass of hemp, a Ninja with a bat mask shall appear and restore order,” a prophecy is heard in the trailer. Batman finds himself transported to an ancient time in Asian history, where the Joker has wreaked havoc and Batman must use his powers to overpower him.

Since it’s based on Bob Kane’s series, expect to see some classic DC names and storylines. The film also borrows heavily from anime cinema - in scenes where Batman is seen charging in his horse or practicing his martial arts skills, will give you anime deja vu.

2Who else can we see?

Besides Batman, you will find a Samurai Joker, and other iconic DC villains like Harley Quinn, Penguin, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Clayface and Deathstroke. Interestingly, all the names have been given a period spin, and makes the movie so interesting. DC supervillain – the telepathic Gorilla Grodd features in the film as a feudal lord.

The film is also an incredible challenge, owing to its time travel angle, as it actually gives the Dark Knight a classic Oriental spin.

 “Batmobile and Batwing both gone... but I still have this body,” says Batman, as he puts on his stellar new armor. The Batsuit has incredibly flamboyant gold accents and has the Bat sign on his chest – which is unusual. The movie has Joker and his Samurai army and Batman actually rides a warhorse. He also does not have his Batarang anymore, but a sword.
