Batman is a character whose appeal spans across many countries. The character’s box office viability overseas is enough to prove that. Hell, the character’s even been turned into an anime with the underwhelming Gotham Knight.
Japan is taking another stab at the character — this time in the unique Batman Ninja film. In this new take on the character, Batman ends up in feudal Japan, and in this new pocket timeline, the Joker is the most powerful man in the country. Of course, he’ll stop at nothing to increase his power and change the course of history.

Yeah, this film looks pretty damn cheesy, but fans of the character will likely get a kick out of feudal Japan versions of Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Robin, and Nightwing.
The official synopsis for Batman Ninja is below:
“Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports many of Batman’s worst enemies to feudal Japan – along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies – including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family – to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.”
