Movie Review – Batman Ninja (2018)

Batman Ninja, 2018.

Directed by Junpei Mizusaki

Featuring the voice talents of Roger Craig Smith, Yuri Lowenthal, Adam Croasdell, Will Friedle, Grey Griffin, Tony Hale, Tara Strong, Eric Bauza, Tom Kenny, and Fred Tatasciore.

Synopsis:

Batman, along with a number of his allies and adversaries, finds himself transplanted from modern Gotham City to feudal Japan.

For a film that plants the Dark Knight bang smack in the middle of a warring feudal Japan, Batman Ninja sure is dull. Ripe for overwrought imagery – of which it stuffs every frame with bright, bombastic animation – it’s all ultimately wasted on a plodding circle jerk of a plot akin to half-baked fan fiction. In fact, Japan feels little more than a lame tool to borrow Nihonga painting styles and some rather brazen attempts at making previously known characters Japanese only in jingoistic look. (Note: the version I saw was the English dub).

‘Batman Ninja’ Blu-ray Review

Features the voices of: Roger Craig Smith, Tony Hale, Grey Griffin, Tara Strong, Fred Tatasciore, Yuri Lowenthal, Adam Croasdell, Will Friedle, Tom Kenny, Eric Bauza | English language version written by Leo Chu, Eric Garcia | Directed by Jumpei Mizusaki

There have been many, many Batman movies over the years – from the 60s movie, to Tim Burton’s 90s reimagining, to the Lego Batman Movie (including the Justice League Dtv Lego movies too) and Christopher Nolan’s trilogy. But, and despite a number of animated Batman movies, there has never been an anime movie featuring DC Comics’ legendary character.

Until now.

The latest animated movie released by DC and Warner Bros., Batman Ninja is the creative result of a trio of animefilmmakers – director Jumpei Mizusaki (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure), writer Kazuki Nakashima (Gurren Lagann), and character designer Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai) – coming together to produce an original movie in collaboration with Warner Bros. Japan.

Amazon's all-new take on the classic cartoon series The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle makes its anticipated debut today! To celebrate that fact, I got to speak with the new voice of Rocket J. Squirrel, the one and only Tara Strong.

Tara Strong Talks Amazon’s ‘Rocky and Bullwinkle,’ Navigating the Voice Industry
The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle” executive producer Scott Fellows knew a voice was missing when the casting team replayed the audition tapes for the show’s titular flying squirrel. “Where’s Tara Strong?” he asked.

Strong had submitted voice auditions twice for the character of Rocky — once for the initial call, which proved unsuccessful, and another when her agent told her Rocky would be recast. Until Fellows inquired, casting agents had pushed her auditions aside. But upon hearing her tape, they immediately changed their minds.

Jimmy Kimmel to voice Batman in Teen Titans Go! to the Movies

Following the release of the latest trailer for Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, comedian and late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel has announced on Twitter that he will be lending his voice to the Dark Knight in the upcoming animated movie.

Kimmel posted the trailer, along with a message to The Lego Batman Movie’s Will Arnett (who also happens to be voicing Deathstroke in the film), stating that “there’s a new Batman in town”.

Jimmy Kimmel To Voice Batman In Teen Titans Go! To The Movies

If anything, Teen Titans Go! To The Movies is shaping up to have the most bizarrely atypical cast for a DC animated film this side of The Lego Batman Movie. Well, that’s aside from those voicing the titular adolescent heroes whom we’ll list off a bit later.

For now, let’s discuss those Justice Leaguers who’ll be putting in appearances, shall we?

Already, we’ve known that Nicolas Cage will be voicing Superman, just as Lil Yachty and Halsey will do for Green Lantern and Wonder Woman, respectively. Still, you had to figure that with those heavy hitters showing up, the studio surely wouldn’t pass up including its top moneymaker, right?

Originally, we suspected that Will Arnett would again lend his pipes to Batman, but we recently learned that he will, in fact, be playing Slade Wilson instead. With that out of the way, we’re

Batman Ninja Blu-Ray Review

Aside from anything residing under the Lego umbrella, I’ve prided myself on collecting every animated and live action movie to feature the Dark Knight and, believe me, I’ve accumulated a nice little library. As such, I had every intention of adding Batman Ninja to my shelf, but I had no idea how utterly disappointed I’d be once I sat down to watch the flick.

If you’re a regular reader here at We Got This Covered and happen to be familiar with my reviews, then you know how much I love DC animation and must be baffled by my displeasure. After all, weren’t there all those trailers that wowed the fanbase?

Well, I think therein lies the problem.

You see, trailers can often mislead by showing some quickly cut together action sequences, thus giving us the impression we’re in for one awesome viewing experience – and

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! “Teen Titans Go! to the Movies” finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the super hero genre, complete with musical numbers.

With a mention of Deadpool (where did that come from??), check out the funny new trailer.

It seems to the Teens that all the major super heroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is!

Amusing Full-Length Trailer for WB's 'Teen Titans Go! To The Movies'

"Titans - you don't actually do anything heroic." Warner Bros has released the full-length official trailer for the big screen, feature version of the "Teen Titans" animated superhero series, titled Teen Titans Go! To The Movies, hitting theaters this July. The movie is a meta-movie, about the Teen Titans being in a movie, with references galore and extra bonus features like musical numbers and big bad villains. The voice cast includes Will Arnett and Kristen Bell, plus Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Tara Strong as Raven, and Hynden Walch as Starfire, reprising their roles from the series. And is that Nicolas Cage as Superman I hear? I think it is, another perfect reference to the movie-that-never-happened with Cage as Superman. This actually looks super duper entertaining!

Nicolas Cage Debuts As Superman In New Teen Titans Go! To The Movies Trailer

Although we received a teaser of sorts for Teen Titans Go! To The Movies a few months back, the truth is that we didn’t entirely know what to expect from the animated film that’ll soon be making its way to cinemas. But now, we have a full trailer that hints at the humor and adventure waiting to unleash itself upon moviegoers.

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the TV series on which the flick is based, but I strangely find myself admiring this work for how truly ballsy it is. Really, to see how self-aware the picture is shows that somebody at Warner Bros. is willing to let the jabs at live action DC movies such as Green Lantern and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice slide.

But what may have people talking most is that Nicolas Cage has finally gotten to play Big Blue in some capacity.

I've been a little bit on the fence with this Teen Titans Go! to the Movies film, but this latest trailer sold me on it. The movie looks like it's going to bring some hilarious humor! The trailer also reveals that Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke is going to be the main villain in the story and he will be voiced by Will Arnett. The movie seems like it's going to non-stop joke fest and it's sure to entertain both kids and their parents.

I also included a series of character posters that poke fun at the Justice League movie team.
