Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has scheduled two nights of Batman Ninja events in New York City with a May 1 screening and panel discussion at The Directors Guild of America, and a May 2 appearance/signing by filmmakers and key voice cast at Kinokuniya Bookstore.
Batman Ninja is breathtaking and after the premier at Wondercon it garnered rave reviews from fans! The film was announced at the 2017 New York Comic Con and now it’s back in the city that never sleeps, NYC the inspiration for Gotham. The two night event in the big apple is a celebration before the May 8th release on Blu-ray & DVD so Dark Knight fans get ready to take a bite out of this imaginative animated Batman film. It’s taken a village to bring this idea to life and includes anime filmmakers Jumpei Mizusaki, director (Opening animation of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure), Kazuki Nakashima, writer (Gurren Lagann) and Takashi Okazaki, character designer (Afro Samurai), Roger Craig Smith (Batman: Arkham Origins) as Batman, Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) as the Joker, Grey Griffin (Scooby-Doo franchise) as Catwoman, and Tara Strong (Batman: The Killing Joke) as Harley Quinn for fanboys & fangirls of Batman the Dark Knight and anime.

About Batman Ninja…
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.
Produced by Warner Bros. Japan and DC Entertainment, Batman Ninja will be distributed May 8, 2018 by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Blu-ray™ Steelbook, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD. The film will be available to own on Digital HD starting April 24, 2018.
