Batman Ninja Is Getting A Live-Action Adaptation In Japan

One of many extra offbeat takes on the Batman legend lately, 2018’s Batman Ninja transplanted the world of the Darkish Knight into anime. Junpei Mizusaki took the directing reins in an animated movie designed by Takashi Okazaki of Afro Samurai fame. It’s now being reported that we’ll be getting a live-action adaptation of the fabric, albeit not as a characteristic movie, however as a stage play. Whereas this can be disappointing for some desirous to see a distinct segment Batman film, a play is undoubtedly an intriguing prospect.

It’s truthful to say that we weren’t too eager on Batman Ninja when the unique animated model arrived a couple of years in the past, which we put down as visually spectacular however a little bit of a large number in different respects. Nonetheless, the film has been sufficient of a hit for Warner Bros. and its Japanese companions on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming to justify a stage adaptation. Information of the stage model comes from Otaku USA on Twitter, which reveals that the play will run in a Japanese theater from October to December 2020.

Extra particularly, Batman Ninja shall be delivered to life at Tokyo’s Moliere Shinjuku between October 10th and December 31st, with manufacturing firm Workplace Infinite behind the motion. The manufacturing, of which you’ll see a teaser picture above, will by some means need to take the weird motion of Batman Ninja, embrace a large samurai monkey, and put it into one thing resembling a coherent (and sensible) stage present. Based mostly on what Batman Ninja ended up doing in animation, this might rival Spider-Man: Flip Off the Darkish for problem in stage diversifications.

Nonetheless, we’d prefer to see how Batman Ninja may work in live-action, even when it solely seems to be working in Tokyo in the intervening time. On the very least, we hope that there’ll be some video clips of the performances to share, and that the ultimate present hasn’t bitten off greater than it will possibly chew with the surreal supply materials.
