Batman Ninja: The Show Confirms Premiere Dates


Batman Ninja: The Show Confirms Premiere Dates

The 2018 anime film Batman Ninja receives a stage play this fall with former Kamen Rider actors joining a rotating cast.

After being delayed from last year due to coronavirus concerns, the stage play Batman Ninja: The Show will debut this October at Theater Mixa in Ikebukuro, Tokyo. The story will follow the same plot as the 2018 anime movie (known in Japan as Ninja Batman) and follows The Dark Knight as he tries to stop Gorilla Grodd from using his latest invention: a time machine. During the fight, the Caped Crusader and several of his Rogue’s Gallery of villains are thrown through time and space from modern day Gotham City to Japan during the Sengoku period. Upon their arrival, the villains waste no time becoming feudal lords and taking over territory in an effort to outdo each other. Without the aid of his advanced weapons and tech, its up to Batman to put a stop to Joker’s plans before time is altered irreparably.

The theme for the show will be performed by Japanese metal band GYZE, who are celebrating their 10th anniversary this year. Due to the high volume of performances scheduled for the show, four different casts will rotate between each performance.
