The first trailer has debuted for "Ninjak Vs. the Valiant Universe," the much-teased live-action collaboration between Valiant Entertainment and Bat in the Sun.
Clock in at one and a half minutes, the teaser is every bit as brutal as fans of Valiant's characters undoubtedly hoped, packed with explosions, gunfire, high kicks and, yes, knives to the eye and face.
Arriving in 2017, the digital series stars Michael Rowe (“Arrow,” “The Flash”) as Valiant's master of stealth who, as the title suggests, is pitted against the company's other heroes, including Bloodshot, X-O Manowar and Roku.
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 …
The six-episode series is directed by Aaron and Sean Schoenke of Bat in the Sun Productions, which produces the popular "Super Power Beat Down, and written by Aaron Schoenke, Sean Schoenke and Joe Harris.
"Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe" also stars Jason David Frank ("Power Rangers") as Bloodshot, John Morrison (WWE, El Rey’s "Lucha Underground") as the Eternal Warrior, Chantelle Barry ("90210," "Entourage") as Roku, Kevin Porter ("Dodgeball:) as Armstrong, Ciera Foster ("Two and a Half Men") as Livewire and Derek Theler (ABC’s "Baby Daddy") as X-O Manowar.
