At New York Comic Con’s “Valiant X Bat in the Sun: Top-Secret Project” panel presentation, Valiant Entertainment revealed new details for its upcoming Ninjak-led live-action digital series, which will be officially titled: “Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe.”
Directed by Bat in the Sun’s Aaron & Sean Schoenke of the YouTube series “Super Power Beat Down,” “Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe” stars “Arrow’s” Michael Rowe as Ninjak/Colin King, “Power Rangers'” Jason David Frank as Bloodshot; former WWE Superstar John Morrison as the Eternal Warrior; “Baby Daddy’s” Derek Theler as X-O Manowar, among many others.
The series is described in the press release as, “a brutal, first-of-its-kind, live-action digital series. Premiering online in late 2017, the bone-shattering, six-episode series will pit MI-6’s master assassin, Ninjak, against a gauntlet of Valiant’s most formidable heroes for a bloodstained battle royale torn from the pages of the largest independent superhero universe in comics.”
The official description reads, “Colin King is Ninjak, MI-6’s deadliest intelligence operative and weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Ninjak will be forced to betray his closest allies. Now, on the run, he must face off against the most powerful heroes known to man for a high-octane, take-no-prisoners trial by fire more perilous and more unpredictable than any he’s faced before. In 2017, the world’s most dangerous super-spy goes to war with the Valiant Universe… ”
“With major projects in film, television, and gaming already well underway, VALIANT DIGITAL is the next strategic evolution of Valiant’s long-term plan to expand the ranks of its already sizable fanbase around the world,” Valiant Chief Operating Officer Gavin Cuneo said in a statement. “In years past, it wasn’t uncommon for comic book publishers to prime new fans by expanding into Saturday morning animation or short-form programming. Today, that demographic has largely migrated online. With the launch of VALIANT DIGITAL and, soon, NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE, Valiant will become the first major comic book publisher to create original, short-form content for the digital arena – and, with it, introduce our characters to one of the most engaged and passionate communities anywhere.”
Said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani, “We’ve been quietly working over the last year to build a series of a scale and ambition that has never before been attempted in the digital space. NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE is a showcase for the incredible characters and storytelling that Valiant has exhibited from its inception. We are incredibly excited to finally be sharing the first project from VALIANT DIGITAL with the Valiant fanbase, the comic book faithful and a whole new legion of fans who consume pop culture in the digital arena, but have yet to purchase their first Valiant comic. We’re bringing the same passion and intensity that helped us produce some of the best comics in the business and coupling that with an incredible, first-class team of filmmakers to create an experience that must be seen to be believed.”
