Yes, I know it seems like Warner Animation forgets there’s other characters besides Batman. But Batman Ninja really does look too cool to ignore even for those suffering from acute Batman fatigue.
Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports many of Batman’s worst enemies to feudal Japan – along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. 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.
Here’s the impressive voice cast:
- Roger Craig Smith (Batman: Arkham Origins) as Batman
- Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) as the Joker
- Grey Griffin (Scooby-Doo franchise) as Catwoman
- Tara Strong (Batman: The Killing Joke) as Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy
- Fred Tatasciore (Family Guy) as Gorilla Grodd and Deathstroke
- Yuri Lowenthal (Ben 10: Omniverse) as Robin
- Adam Croasdell (Reign) as Nightwing and Alfred
- Will Friedle (Boy Meets World) as Red Robin and Red Hood
- Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Penguin
- Eric Bauza (The Adventures of Puss in Boots) as Two-Face
As usual, digital users can get the film earlier on April 24. Folks who want the Blu-Ray Steelbook and Blu-Ray Combo Pack and DVD will have to wait a bit longer and grab it on May 8.
