Batman Ninja marks The Dark Knight’s second major foray into anime after 2008’s direct-to-video Batman: Gotham Knight, which bridged the gap between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight with a series of anime shorts, each produced by a different studio.

Set for a 2018 release, following Batman: Gotham By Gaslight, Batman Ninja hails from director Jumpei Mizusaki, character designer Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai) and writers Kazuki Nakashima, Leo Chu and Eric Garcia.
