A few short months ago, I shared the trailer for the anime feature “Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters” which you can see HERE in the event that you missed it. In the post I mentioned my aiming at sharing more items such as this based on the dominance of the Anime culture and its wonderful shows. That brings me to the recently revealed feature by some of Japan’s top creators with “Batman Ninja”. Check out the clip below along with the premise and the voice actors.
The Premise: Batman is transported to Feudal Japan and must battle reimagined versions of his villains alongside his allies. Aiding the Dark Knight are Japanese versions of Nightwing, Red Hood, Red Robin, Robin, Alfred Pennyworth, and Catwoman. Villains confirmed to appear include the Joker, Harley Quinn, Penguin, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Deathstroke, and Gorilla Grodd. (thanks Wiki).
Batman – Kōichi Yamadera
Joker – Wataru Takagi
Harley Quinn – Rie Kugimiya
Catwoman – Ai Kakuma
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I noted in the post about “Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters”, I’ve been trying to be more on point with the Anime stuff because its getting bigger and bigger. Perhaps its always been big but I guess what I am saying is that more people who never paid much attention to it are realizing what they have been missing. My cousins think its comical that I’ve never seen an episode of “Attack On Titan” or any “Gundam Wing” stuff but I haven’t. As far as “Batman Ninja” is concerned, I have to say that this one looks really awesome and how interesting will it be to see Feudal Japan themed characters from the Batman franchise. The Joker and Harley Quinn look especially wild IMHO and with the lackluster views about the “Killing Joke” film from the Warner Animated folks, this one looks to be a significant upgrade. As I watched this it reminded me of the “Elseworlds” tales that I used to collect back in the day from DC Comics. This will hit the streets in 2018 during the early part of the year to my knowledge and let’s hope that the fine folks at Fathom Events put together some kind of “one-night only” screening so we can not only be in attendance but try to sort out a contest for our readers to see it for free on the big screen. What did you think of this one? Let me know down in the comments section below. Until next time.
It sure is a busy day for the fans of the live-action comic book presentations as not only has Netflix begun streaming “The Punisher” but today is the day that the DC Extended Universe goes “All In” as Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg stand united as The Justice League against a common worldwide threat. Yes my friends, the long awaited “Justice League” film opens up today in theaters everywhere and comes care of Warner Brothers Pictures. Below you’ll find the theatrical poster along with premise and casting. I’ll add some additional thoughts afterwards.
The Synopsis: Months after the events of Batman v Superman and inspired by Superman’s sacrifice for humanity, Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince assemble a team of metahumans – The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg – to face the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and the Parademons who are on the hunt for three Mother Boxes on Earth.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Even though I greatly enjoyed the trailer than was revealed during NYCC, I am a little bit on the fence about this one. It has too much of the video game look that I hated about the action sequences in “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and we all know full-well how that film has been received at this point. Now, the DCEU found great success with the “Wonder Woman” film earlier this year so can “Justice League” work from that momentum? I am certainly hoping so because I’d love for them to continue to build upon this universe as opposed to letting it all go. The timing of the film will not let me see it during the opening weekend and probably not until the middle of the following week so if you see it right away please don’t post any spoilers in the comments. Feel free to let us know if you had a positive or negative opinion only because that is fine. I’ll likely do a spoiler free review a few days after I finally see the film. That’s all I have for now so tell me, are you excited for “Justice League” or are you giving it a pass.
The 2017 edition of New York Comic Con ended a short while ago, and if you happened to pass by the “Justice League” display down where DC Entertainment had a nicely set up presentation, you got a chance to see the the brand new trailer for the film that opens in November. This trailer was one of the ones that fans were looking forward to for sure and you can check it out from the comfort of your home without tens of thousands of people around you below. I’ll follow that with some reminder premise and casting along with some other fun stuff.
We’re cooking with gas from the currently ongoing Comic Con International: San Diego and sharing the relevant trailers to our readers that showcase the live-action releases based on the wonderful comic book stuff that we speak of several times a month. I guess it was a few months ago by now that Warner Brothers Pictures gave us the trailer for “Justice League” and I was left on the “meh” side with minor “ah-ha” moments. Since that time the “Wonder Woman” film had been released and did GANGBUSTERS at the Box Office and guess what my friends, the film was pretty damned excellent. Many of us left the theaters thinking that they were finally on the right track with the DC Extended Universe. Now it’s time to take a look at the Exclusive Trailer that was revealed at the convention. Hold onto your hats my friends. This looks to be quite a ride and if you’ve not been following these films yet I will provide some information afterwards.

I’ve been getting so excited about the upcoming “Guardians Of The Galaxy” Vol. 2 film that I didn’t realize that a few TV Spots for the Warner Brothers Pictures “Wonder Woman” film had aired and now that we are going to start to see these commercials a lot I wanted to put them together for your indulgence. “Wonder Woman” will be the fourth installment in the building DC Extended Universe of films and takes place before the events that happened in “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and “Suicide Squad”. It will lead us to the Fall opening “Justice League”. Check them out.
