    That seems plausible. There's also the chance the US might get one of those one-night only theatrical screenings as well.

    IMDb has added an entry for Batman Ninja. I believe that the listing is entirely fan-submitted (I submitted at least some of it just this morning) and is based on the panel description for NYCC, so take some of the included information with a grain of salt. Any confirmation of the included data would be greatly appreciated.

    If you see anything that you know is incorrect then, if you are an IMDb or IMDb Pro user, feel free to submit a correction!

    I'm not at NYCC today, so I've been living vicariously through other people at the Batman Ninja panel. Twitter highlights I've spotted in the last hour or so:

    Edit: ah right, media limits. Can look at my twitter for what I caught. There's also the #BatmanNinja hashtag












    Other tidbits:

    • Out in 2018 (no kidding), will be rated PG-13
    • Voiceover work still needs to be completed
    • English + Japanese audio on the release
    • Red Hood also confirmed
    • Deflection answer on whether Ra's al Ghul is in or not

    Batman Ninja's fierce key visual. Hat tip to the GoodSmile_US twitter, advertising an autograph session at NYCC (I cropped the image from that source). DC-branded and I'm just a bit amused I didn't see this from the DC Comics twitter first, but I have no reason to think it's not legit.

    It looks good, but still a bit too traditional for my taste and playing it safe. I just expected something truly exotic and Asian.

    Can anyone think of a voice actor with the initials "T.H.?"

    This all sounds good so far, though I was hoping to get a trailer. Ah, well, there's no rush.

    Well, I guess technically two of my theories ended up coming true...we will see the normal Batman and his cast of characters, but they'll also be transported to Feudal Japan :anime:.

    Interesting that they mention Robin along with Nightwing. I wonder which Robin it'll be? And will we see Batgirl :)?

    The way the fight scenes were crafted reminds me of motion-capture. Curious to see how it plays out in the actual animation :cool:.

    "Grodd?" As in Gorilla Grodd? Can't say I was expecting him to show up :eek:.

    Red Hood is also a surprise. I'm guessing that means Jason Todd in the identity :ack:?

    That's a pretty awesome teaser image. Batman looks great, and I can't wait to see the rest of the cast in that style :D.

    Not a voice actor, per se; but Tom Hardy?

    Is Jumpei Mizusaki the same person as Junpei Mizusaki, producer of the 2012 JoJo's Bizarre Adventure television series and animation director for several Mega Man games?

    I'm now officially interested. And I totally wasn't before. I thought the idea sounded dumb. But they aren't actually rebooting the entire premise, they are making the characters as we know them fit into it. I heartily approve.

    Thanks. The sounds for 'm' and 'n' often seem interchangeable in Japanese--except when they're not.

    Todd Haberkorn or Thom Adcox-Hernandez?

    Yes, that happens only when a person's name has an 'un' character (looks like a slanted lowercase h to Americans) in it.

    EDIT: Found a tweet of Batman and Joker figures from the movie. And a Red Hood poster I think.

    Voice recording not all done yet. Been working on it for 3 years.

    Robin with a sword probably equals Damian...

    I hope they go full-on Oda Nobunaga with Grodd in this :p.
    Joker's design reminds me a lot of Kefka from Final Fantasy...

    I wonder if there are other character posters for the rest of the cast :)?

    A few random thoughts:

    - The art revealed looks pretty awesome. Likewise the figures of Batman & Joker. I'm looking forward to seeing them in motion.
    - The movie seems to have a nice mix of villains, some I wasn't expecting. I mean, Joker was kind of predictable, but Grodd is a neat surprise.
    - It's also cool they're adding more members of the Bat-Family as well. I'm hoping there's a Batgirl as well. Come to think of it, this would be a nice opportunity for Cassandra Cain to make her animated debut.
    - I'm not all that familiar with voice actor names, but the first names with the initials T.H. I could think of were Tom Hanks, Tom Hiddleston and Tom Tom Holland. But I kind of doubt they got any of them for the role. :p

    It's not like Tom Hanks is a stranger to voice acting, though I really don't know how I would cast him in this. But I could totally hear Hiddleston as Joker (or Ra's al Ghul?) or Holland as Nightwing or Red Hood.

    I am kind of curious to see if they'll attach any celebrities to the voice cast in this or if we'll primarily see regular anime VA's get a shot at the Caped Crusader and his cast of characters :)?

    That Red Hood art is unrelated to the film

    Prime 1 Studio will have a line of 1/4 scale toys based on the movie.
