ANN has recently reported that the Batman Ninja film will be receiving a manga adaptation by Masato Hisa. The manga will be published in the July issue of the Monthly Hero magazine in Japan this Friday.
For those who are unaware the manga is based on the direct to home video Batman Ninja animated film that was released on May 8. The film will debut in Japanese theaters on June 15 and will feature a Japanese voice dub cast.
Warner Brothers provided a synopsis.
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.
