One of the most iconic rivalries in the comic book universe has been reimagined as an anime, and it’s as epic as it sounds.

Revealed with English subtitles at the New York Comic Con, the first trailer of Batman Ninja shows the hero battling head-to-head in ninja-style with the ‘Joker’.

The nemeses are joined by DC characters ‘Robin’, ‘Harley Quinn’, ‘Catwoman’, and more.

The action is one thing; the power-packed visuals are perhaps the real reason you should watch the film, which was designed by Emmy nominee Takashi Okazaki and animated by playwright Kazuki Nakashima. All the characters are dressed in detailed, feudal Japanese gear, and the battles front stunning backdrops of temples and pagodas.
