Valiant Entertainment has debuted the first official image of Colin King as Ninjak, in the publisher's upcoming feature-length original digital series starring the character. Valiant is set to unveil further details for the project at New York Comic Con next week.
According to an official press release, the series "will feature Ninjak’s brutal live-action debut as he goes head-to-head with a top-secret roster of Valiant’s most iconic heroes for a bloodstained battle royale."
In addition to King, the series stars Kevin Porter ("Dodgeball"), Ciera Foster ("Straight Outta Compton"), Michael Rowe ("Arrow," "The Flash"), Jason David Frank ("Power Rangers"), John Morrison ("WWE," "Lucha Underground"), Derek Theler ("Baby Daddy") and Chantelle Barry ("90210," "Entourage").
Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani said in a statement:
“We've been quietly working behind the scenes on this series since 2015 and are incredibly excited to be debuting the first look at footage this year at New York Comic Con. We've set out to make the best and most ambitious series ever produced in the digital space – one that will live up to the high standards we've set in publishing. As Valiant gears up for an upcoming slate of film, television and video game releases, we felt the timing was right to begin to produce live-action digital content that would both give ours fans an experience truly worthy of the Valiant Universe, while also introducing new fans to the Valiant characters in the same way the animated television shows of the 1980s and 1990s did for comics in years past. Get ready to lose your mind – seeing Ninjak in action for the first time in nothing short of incredible.”
Stay tuned for further information about the series at Valiant's "Valiant X Bat In The Sun: Top-Secret Project Panel" panel at NYCC on Saturday, October 8.
