In case you are clueless about Batman Ninja, the film’s official announcement was made at the New York Comic Con earlier by JunpeiMizusaki, Takashi Okazashi, and Kazuki Nakashima. The trio is part of a team which has created films like Afro Samurai and Kill la Kill. Given below is the official Warner Bros. synopsis of the movie:

“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.”
